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.)

Elevator Band (Midlands, U.K.) | The Elevator Band, formed in April 2006, play a blend of melodic, laid-back, powerful pop/rock, with sing-along tunes and catchy choruses. The music is instantly accessible and is delivered with passion and flair. Lead singer Rob Davies has played all over the world for the last 12 years; his influences include John Martyn, Nick Drake and Jesus Rodriguez.

The Glare of Day | Taking their name from "To Helen" by Edgar Allan Poe, The Glare Of Day has, by now, evolved into more of a melting pot of ideas than just Tim O'Saben's pre-written material. Although he put the ingredients together, the band has taken on a life all it's own. With a sound heavily influenced by New Wave acts (The Cure, The Church, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Love and Rockets) and seminal indie rock pioneers (Dinosaur jr., Archers Of Loaf, The Pixies, Guided By Voices) The Glare Of Day conjures up songs that find ways to bridge together these musical landscapes.

Hated Nixon | This three-piece punk-rock band formed in late summer 2005. The band consists of three veteran musicians who have all logged tens of thousands of miles touring, played thousands of shows, and released multiple albums combined over the last eight years. With their previous musical endeavors behind them, the boys of Hated Nixon aimed to jump right back into the St. Louis rock scene and make a name for themselves. Burnett's acid rock-influenced drums and Salamone's motown-esque bass lines lay the foundation for their unique groove-mixed punk style which is framed by Wyatt's sing-along vocals and pumping guitars. With the completion of their first EP, Unleash the Fury, it is evident that Hated Nixon is carving their own niche: one part punk, one part progressive, and one part groove.
