You won't leave Chaifetz Arena without overhearing at least one discussion about how to pronounce the name of the 10,000-seat arena on the campus of St. Louis University (for the record, it's Shay-fetz, not Chay-fitz or Kay-feetz). But you don't come here for the name or the SLU connection - it's all about the music, man! Though not quite as massive as the Scottrade Center, Chaifetz has hosted a laundry list of A-list performers, including Lil' Wayne, Vampire Weekend and even Bob Dylan. This is the place for shows that don't require production teams equal to the population of most small Missouri towns. Since most shows at Chaifetz are free or heavily discounted for students, the crowd can be, well, a little less than reverent to the folks on stage, but never mind that. In addition to its musical offerings, Chaifetz also plays host to SLU-approved political figures and speakers on occasion, so just ignore the Bill O'Reilly house ads blazing during intermission.
