Hello, he's Johnny Cash. Well, he's the next best thing, in any case. Shawn Baker provides the full Cash experience when he stars in "Man in Black: A Tribute to Johnny Cash" at 8 p.m. Friday at the Mohegan Sun Wolf Den.

Barker, who looks and sounds like Cash, plays the younger version of Johnny in the concert but performs songs from throughout the star's long-running and storied career.

The Wolf Den is the spot for another "sounds like ..." show on Saturday. A band will recreate Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" as part of the "Classic Albums Live" series.
