Stop Crying Your Heart Out

The Bitter Tears
Genre: Hardcore / Showtunes
From: Chicago, Illinois

United States

As reviews go the Bitter Tears' first was short, sharp and too the point

'thanks for ruining my fuckin’ night.'

Halfway through their first show, a member of the audience approached them between songs, uttered the above profanity and promptly hot footed it out. They have a cellist and a trombonist, and they sound a little like the Decemberists with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (is it something in the Chicago water?) and a musical map of the US. It's a colourful carnival of Dixieland stomps, Americana, Chicago blues and even the odd Texan two-step.

Like their fellow Chicagoan Kato (see the Devil's post from earlier today Kato) Ritalin is recommended.
