On Saturday night down in the Loop, Cicero's hosted a very quality three band bill of rock 'n' roll.  

Controlled Fires, a local 4 piece, started off the night with an energized set of material that featured the songwriting and vocal capabilities of Sam Wade. With well crafted songs that were backed by a steady rhythm section and tasteful guitar lines, they put on a good set that was warmly received by the audience.  

Half way past the 10 o'clock hour with the crowd swelling to fill the room, local favorites, Sleepy Kitty took to the stage and delivered an absolute gem of a set. With an equal balance of catchy guitar work from Paige Brubeck and timepiece precision drumming from Evan Sult, the duo commanded the stage and controlled the room and had the crowd hollerin' for more.

Touring in support of their upcoming album, “Madness in Miniature,” Cleveland based duo, Mr. Gnome, headlined the show and wasted no time filling the venue with their hauntingly beautiful sound. From behind the kit, Sam Meister pounded out thick grooves that sucker punch you right in the chest, while Nicole Barille's intricate guitar work and eerie vocals leave you in a state somewhere between being mesmerized and hypnotized.  They wailed, they shredded, they melted faces and won over many new fans here in the brick city.
