There's no shortage of fests and fun this weekend. Choose from the Whiskey War Festival, the Saint Louis Underground Music Festival and PrideFest downtown or in Tower Grove. Read on for details of each, and consider catching another show or two. Ellen the Felon throws a birthday party at the Engine Room, several talented local artists assemble to put on a tribute to Native Tongues and much more.

Friday (June 27):

Frank Hurricane w/ Zebu, Fred Friction, Tim Garrigan, Zak M @ Los Punk 8 p.m. | $5 Says Zak M, who booked the show: "I know I'm not the only one in this town who finds marathon shows painful. But I'm probably not the only one who also finds pain exciting." This quintuple bill features an evening of songwriters from in and out of town. Grab a beer, pull up a chair. More info on the performers here. (MS)

Native Lights w/ Tone Rodent @ Melt 9 p.m. | $5 Native Lights hails from Tulsa and plays shoegaze-drenched rock. Hear them here. Tone Rodent provides support with its mean psychedelia. (MS)

Tribute to Native Tongues w/ Jia Davis, Brett Gretzky, Mathias & the Pirates with Superhero Killer, Doorway, 12 to 6 Movement, Big Brother Thunder & the Master Blasters, Vinny Bee, DJ Mahf @ The Gramophone 9 p.m. | $7/$10 Think of this as a warm-up for SLUM Fest. Between the two events you will have seen a huge slice of St. Louis' finest hip-hop acts. (DH)

Dog Fashion Disco w/ Psychostick, The Bunny the Bear @ Fubar 6:30 p.m. | $15 Experimental metal, back from the dead! In case you missed it, DFD is fully reunited as of October. (DH)
