Join PLAYBACK:stl as we host Tuesday nights at Cicero’s in the Loop of University City here in St. Louis. Each week, we will bring three great acts to the cozy room in the club that offers fantastic bands every night. (We highly recommend the pizza.)

Me and Other People (Columbia) | The band's diverse and sometimes completely opposite tastes in music has led to material that consciously jumps from one genre to the next. All three current members have been primary writers for songs either completed or in development, and the songwriting process is often democratic and slow. Like a fine scotch, the music is distilled … uh … yeah we're basically just kinda lazy. Me and Other People is currently in the process of recording its first demo through a mix of live performances and a quasi-studio setup.

Andrew Essig | I've been playing for about 7 years. I've just moved to St. Louis and am hoping to play some local venues to get my fan base going and meet some other musicians who are interesting in working together. I'm hopefully going into the studio this fall to start an independently funded EP, so keep an eye out. For now I'm flying solo and doing what I can to get my name out and known.

Kevin Barry | Kevin's been playing around St. Louis for a while, in a variety of collaborations with other musicians (Kevin Michaels, Ghetto Prenup, The Lab). His latest project is Orangefield, an acoustic, trippy collaboration with Grant Essig (SevenStar, Jonathan Cour). Whatever the arrangement, expect emotionally honest lyrics and delivery.
