Cheater Pint

Cheater Pint


Abba meets the Sex Pistols. The Go-Go's on massive steroids. Think melodies and harmonies dirtied up by punk rock grit.


Described as Abba meets The Sex Pistols, Cheater Pint is a four-piece rock band with no gimmicks, no bullshit. Their in-your-face live performances can catch off guard those seduced by the accessible pop of their studio recordings.

Listeners have likened Cheater Pint to the Fastbacks, Breeders, X, Veruca Salt and the Pixies, and have been recently described as "the Go-Go's on massive steroids." Band members consider early alternative rock bands like the Replacements, Superchunk and Pavement amongst their influences.

Propelled by the success of the single "Control Freak," The 'Pint released their first full-length album in September 2007. 'Dark Side of the Pint' is spinning in the Boston area at WBCN, WFNX, and WAAF and is charting or in rotation at nearly 150 college/community radio stations across the U.S. and Canada.

Cheater Pint has played to a loyal and growing fan base in the International Pop Overthrow, the Rising Tide Concert Series and several Boston-area venues such as Great Scott, The Middle East Club, T.T. The Bear's Place, The Abbey Lounge and more with the likes of The Cliks, Aberdeen City, The Charms, Loveless, Humanwine, and Damone.
