21 February: Too Cute To Puke + Women In Horror Month Screening and Quiz

Pillowcase kissers, juvenile delinquents och riot grrrls! This Friday were proud to invite you to join us at the newly rebuilt Spegelsalen (Mirror room) at Morika Paviljongen where we have not one, but two Queens of the Neighbourhood joining us behind the decks. Tyrannosaurus Bex (STHLM) och Ylwa Skywalker (GBG) have both played with us before and owned the dancefloor. This time, like a giant combined Transformer, they will own the world. Expect booty dancing, screaming along to X Ray Spex, holding your beer with two hands and absolutely femmetastic madness!

February also marks the Women In Horror Month and together with Lund International Fantastic Film Festival we're having a Women In Genre Film-themed quiz and a screening of American Mary by Jen and Sylvia Soska. »The story follows medical student, Mary Mason, as she becomes increasingly broke and disenchanted with the surgical world she once admired. The allure of easy money sends Mary into the world of underground surgeries which ends up leaving more marks on her than her so called 'freakish' clientele.« – Twisted Twins Productions. Thanks to Njutafilms for letting us show American Mary.

As if all of this wasn't enough we are showing drawings by NATTSKIFTET – an art project by Lisen Haglund from Stockholm. In a drawing per day she captures darkness, feminism, satire and absurdity in black as night ink. We ran into her instagram feed and were blown away. Lisen is also doing an Ikon projekt for the Swedish Riot Grrrl blog Grrrl Collection.

So Tough! So Cute! Favourite Songs From 2013

Hi, here is our list of our favourite records and releases from 2013. As always it's a bit late. We bought 128 psysical records in total, about a 40 less than last year, and about 40 digital releases. Bandcamp ruled* as did the Last.fm Scrobbler extension which was great for scrobbling bandcamp, youtube, soundcloud and just about everything else. Listening to a lot of interview podcasts this summer cut down quite a bit on the music listening but we still squeeze in about 90-100 tracks a day.

*A quick note on bandcamp which we used a lot this year and really love and support but could use improvement in some areas. First of all, why not have some kind of system where you, after having bought the digital files, can to buy the physical copy at some sort of discount. We spent to much money buying stuff twice this year. Secondly, labels and artists? Tag your fucking files correctly.

Before we get to our favourite songs a short recap of the year:
We put on a total of only 14 nights; 11 Too Cute To Puke and 2 So Tough! So Cute! Apart from 1 in London all of them were in Sweden. A lot less than last year because of lack of venues and dates. We did 7 guest spots at various clubs. They were all pretty much amazing.

Our fantastic guest-DJ's and bands were primarily women and they were all easy to find and book. (hint: book a female DJ or band next time at your club). A big thank you to Maja & Emma of I Vaginan, Sofia Fredlund of Makeriet, Stephanie Goodman of Shrag, Alice Samoilova, Ylwa Skywalker, Rebecka aka Tyrannosaurus Bex, Sven-Eric Nilsson of Klubb Indiean, Hanna & Hedvig, Orphans, Emmy Kafle, Ellen Magnusson, Anna Brynolf, Könsförrädare... and… I've forgotten someone haven't I? Apologies if it's you.

Again the mixtapes took the backseat but we managed to feature 5 great guest mixes by Andreas of Alpaca Sports, Rosy Crucifixion, Niklas of Fulhäst, Erika of Expressway To Yr Skull and Toby of Riots Not Diets.

Anyway. Our favourite songs from 2013. Rules are the same as last year – if we got hold of it in 2013, then it counts as released in 2013. And, even more than last year, definitely more tough than cute.
