5. Bunnygrunt at Schlafly Bottleworks 

Actually, the full title of this event should read Bunnygrunt featuring The Tambourine Artistry Of Liz Wolfson & Her Amazing World of Rhythm, but there's not enough room for that. The event runs from 5:30 to 10 p.m. this Saturday. Oh, and in addition to the music, food and beer, you'll also get a puppet show.

6. Wavves

Check out Wavves this Saturday at the Billiken Club at Saint Louis University. The show starts at 9 p.m. The Price? Free. You can't beat that. 

7. An Under Cover Weekend

Head over to the Firebird for this annual Saint Louis concert series featuring original local bands, not cover bands, performing secret tribute sets at The Firebird. Friday night's lineup includes Troubadour Dali playing Queens of The Stone Age, The Blind Eyes playing Fleetwood Mac, Sleepy Kitty as Pavement and Union Tree Review playing The Postal Service. 

On Saturday, concertgoers can look forward to The Orbz performing Iggy and The Stooges, Beth Bombara and Cassie Morgan performing as The Breeders, Tenement Ruth performing Loretta Lynn, and more. Tickets for each night run $10. For more info and the full lineup, check out An Under Cover Weekend.
