The weekend is already here — it’s “funny how time flies,” like Janet Jackson sings. Now that your workweek is over, you can see her perform at CFG Bank Arena with rapper Nelly. There are plenty of other musical events this weekend, too, but if you’re not in the mood for that, enjoy an outdoor movie night (or two), a comedy show or a Caribbean festival.
