Bio

"Their catchy hooks and eclectic mix of pop and grunge make for a sweet outrageously energetic live show." - Brooke Murphy (Hipflask)

"Boykie’s visceral expositions weren’t lost on the crowd, their dynamic off-kilter rhythm was a perfect frame for some of their more engaging and impassioned lyrics. Particularly impressive was their focus in front of such a large crowd, as Jack Rabbit Slim’s is becoming increasingly THE go-to live music hub." - Alex Mee (Avenoir)
