Hear that? It's the clock counting down the hours until your weekend begins and it's nearing the magic moment known as quitting time. To help the time pass more quickly, you might consider what it is you'll actually be doing during the next couple days and nights of work-free bliss.

Luckily, if you're in the mood to get in a live show or two, there are more than a few options to choose from over the next 72 hours (eyeball our extensive online concert calendar for proof of such). And then there are our choices for the must-see shows this weekend.

The Chainsmokers - Friday, February 28 - Maya Day and Nightclub

If you've spent anytime on Facebook recently, it's a strong possibility that any of the EDM fans, club kids, or party-monster millennials on your friends list have dropped a link in their respective newsfeeds to "#SELFIE" by The Chainsmokers, probably with comments along the lines of "ZOMG! This is soooo funny!" It shouldn't come as any surprise, given that the recently released track is not only an addicting four minutes of electro-filled dance-pop ear candy, it's also one of those song that both pokes fun at an Internet subculture (in this case, the vapidity of selfies) while simultaneously celebrating the practice.

It's also, as your aforementioned Facebook friends have ascribed, quite hilarious and has served to propel The Chainsmokers into their current status of being EDM's resident "it" act of the nanosecond. The NYC duo of DJ/producers Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart have gotten shout-outs from the likes of Rolling Stone as an up-and-coming act to watch, not to mention more than more than a million YouTube views for "#SELFIE" since its release on Dim Mak late last month. Suffice it to say, you can expect a big crowd, who will probably engage in mass selfies, when The Chainsmokers come to Maya on Friday.
