In case, after five years, you are coming into this unprepared: Ten St. Louis bands each don the guise of a different group it is inspired by in some way. Costumes, sing-alongs and balls-to-wall-ing ensue. This year's lineup includes newcomers like Arthur and the Librarian (doing Simon & Garfunkel) as well as veterans such as perennial AUCW favorites Via Dove (Aerosmith) and last year's biggest surprise, Dots Not Feathers (Stevie Wonder last year, Michael Jackson this weekend).

Take the Party Home: Each year, AUCW expands into a new corner of the Internet – this year keep your eye out for videos of the bands explaining their choices and what they have planned.
