Thanks and photos from the Harvey Williams and Leaving Mornington Crescent night

Thanks to everyone who showed up and made our night a lovely mini popfest! Harvey Williams put on a great live show with singing along to, I dare say, every song. And he finished up with a wonderful cover of the Hit Parade which made atv least my eyes swell up with tears. Malmös own Leaving Mornington Crescent opened with an impressive live debut and even got people to dance. Harvey also did a really strong dj-set and somehow managed to keep the dancefloor going while signing copies of the reissue of London Weekend*. Thanks to everyone involved in making this a great night. Next time will be the last So Tough! So Cute! at Retro for the time being but we'll talk about that in the next post. *Seriously, buy this record. The sound is fantastic, there's loads of extra tracks. The linear notes are well-written and the sleeve is full of clippings. Here are the few photos that we managed to save

No Time For Us indeed. Club night cancelled. Now with Not cancelled

Sorry everyone but we have to cancel the club night on friday as we don't have a venue. I was really looking forward to playing and dancing with everyone but there isn't much I can do

Update Sorry for all this on again of again but as popkids with our hearts on our sleeves I guess we should be used to it. We're gonna be doing a smaller version of the night as the venue is smaller and time shorter. So please come to Tempo Bar & Kök and we'll be there playing between 2130-01 DJs will be Peter Thulin (Musik & Konst) Frederik Krantz (Chocolate Barry) John Krantz (The Branded) Daniel Novakovic (ST!SC!) Anna Brynolf (Liverpool) but if you where scheduled to play before feel free to bring a few songs with you and we'll squeeze them in
