3free_logo.gif Pinching pennies? Chic but cheap? We understand. Here are three free events this week for your going out pleasure.

Wednesday, August 27

- Vinyl Skyway @ Kendall Square: Like pop? Well, what are you waiting for? This is the last chance to see an al fresco show in Kendall Square's Summer Folk Concert Series. The Boston Globe has compared Cambridge-based Vinyl Skyway's jangly, summery pop to "Lindsey Buckingham-era Fleetwood Mac." Local band does good, indeed. 12:30 - 1:30 p.m.

- Digital Book Mobile @ City Hall Plaza: Let's get digital. Digital. Did you know that you download audiobooks, eBooks, and music online from the Boston Public Library to your iPod or Black Berry? If you're looking to get over your fear of the non-printed world or just want to find out more about the 24/7 library, head to City Hall Plaza for tutorials and instructional videos. Or, as the flier for the event says, learn how to "pimp your library." 8 a.m.- 3 p.m.

Friday, August 29

- Wormhole: The Films of Bill Domonkos @ Space 242: This San Francisco-based artist — a former video-game designer — splices together Cold War-era footage, found photos, and computer animation in his seductive short films. And if sublime shorts set to Tchaichovsky or The Residents make you hungry, you're in luck. There will be free food and drink at this retrospective. Reservations required. 6-8 p.m.

More? How about some "electric" block-rocking beats at ZuZu this Sunday? Or, see all free events.
