"Mere minutes into the set, he throws himself on the floor, white suede dress shoes flailing, in a spectacular display of rock 'n' roll grand mal. The crowd backs up, bristling with confused looks. But it's not long before the witnesses are also seized by the 'just gotta dance' reflex. Billy Boloby's catchy, feverish brand of rock 'n' roll has been known to cause convulsions, hypothermia, even spontaneous combustion. And that's on a bad night." -- Audra Schroeder, New Times Broward-Palm Beach.

That's a pretty fair assessment of what happens when the Bittercups take the stage. This ain't some shoe-gazing indie-rock band, nor is it a raucus, bottle-breaking punk band. The Bittercups are a band anyone can dig -- and that's precisely the point. It's not just for punks, hipsters, or any other narrow group. But that's not because the band is trying to be all things to all people. It's just the nature of fun, unpretentious rock 'n' roll, and that's something all four Bittercups have plenty of experience with.
