As the principal singer and co-songwriter in Squeeze, Glenn Tilbrook provided the people with tight, melodic, life-affirming pop for many years. Squeeze wasn't anyone's favorite band, but who actually disliked it? Just think of the songs, man, the songs: "Black Coffee in Bed" is the best soul song that never was, "Up The Junction" turns on a dime, and "Goodbye Girl" takes a crappy drum-machine samba beat and turns it into solid gold. Onstage, Tilbrook is as affable a chap as you'll find, honoring requests for all the old favorites and peppering the set with songs from his two solo albums. Dust off your copy of Singles -- 45 and Under and bask in the rays of pop's goodness.

Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15; call 314-421-3853 for more information.
