    Expect a whole lotta shakin' going on this week at the annual Elvis Fest celebration.

    Elvis Presley impersonators from all over the country will hit the The Original Mother's (26 West Division St.) on Friday for the 10th annual bash, which is always held on the late singer's birthday.

    Tribute artists from the Elvis Entertainers Network will take to the stage to perform classic Elvis tracks, and judging by last year's event, there'll be plenty of screaming ladies in the crowd.

    A free peanut butter and banana buffet is included with the suggested $5 cover charge, and the event will be broadcast live by legendary radio personality Dick Biondi on WLS-FM 94.7.

    Trust us -- you'll be anything but lonesome on this night.
