It's the end of the week and it's hard to imagine better weather. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to enjoy it this weekend, including (count 'em) three outdoor festivals that involve standout locals: Midtown Alley Fest, Grove Fest and Euclid Records' Gazebo A-Go-Go. Mount Eerie will play a very unexpected show at Foam tomorrow night, Helmet brings the rock to the Firebird on Sunday and the latest KDHX tribute show will see the St. Louis music community channel Stevie Wonder.
