Have you ever noticed how you can't spell "Cherokee" without "Cher"? Well, someone did, because tomorrow on Cherokee Street, folks will attempt to break the world record for gathering the most Cher impersonators at once. If that prospect doesn't excite you, not to worry -- there are plenty of other options to get into this weekend. LouFest takes over Forest Park, so stay tuned for ongoing coverage. Alternatively, check out Pü Fest for a completely different experience. Plenty more shows await in this weekend's recommendations.
Friday (September 5):
Austin Mahone w/ Fifth Harmony, Shawn Mendes, Alex Angelo @ The Fox Theatre 7 p.m. | $25-$65 If you've ever been interested in what Justin Bieber looks like from the ground up, I think this is the guy to look at now. An interesting sociological study. (DH)
DJ Spinn w/ DJ Paypal, DJ Earl, DMY @ The Billiken Club 8 p.m. | $8 School's back in session, which means showtime on the campus stage. The first Saint Louis University concert of the fall season features Chicago footwork artist DJ Spinn. Chizmo.tv provides live projections to set the scene for a dance party. (MS)
