Last Night's Vice is a five-piece pop rock band from St. Louis, Missouri. After forming in 2006, the group self-released their debut EP called The Power Cosmic EP. Locally, some of their milestones would include playing at both Pointfest 27 and Pointfest 28 as well as the 2011 Fair Saint Louis. Nationally, Last Night's Vice has played at a number of iconic venues from The Cubby Bear in Chicago, Illinois and The Viper Room in Los Angeles, CA.[1]

Last Night's Vice is known for their do-it-yourself mentality, taking charge of their own recordings, websites, videos, promotions and show-bookings. Their most recent music video for "Dance While You Still Have Time", filmed and edited by Jordan Phoenix(Guitarist) and Dave Moore, showcases their guerrilla promotional efforts.[2]

Last Night's Vice is currently touring and promoting the release of their full-length album titled Perfect Little Noise.
