We're really happy to announce the first So Tough! So Cute! night in London and we hope you will be able to come down and dance and have a great time with us.
After running monthly clubs in Sweden since 2007 and having graced dancefloors with mind blowing, sing-along, fists-in-the-sky guest dj-sets at London's own Baby Honey, How Does It Feel To Be Loved, Twee As F*ck and Popfest, we are here to put on a proper indie pop, post-punk, 'twee', diy and garage pop night where the focus is on dancing the night away and making out with someone you probably shouldn't make out with.
Whether it's Field Mice, the Fall, Crass, Belle & Sebastian, Orange Juice or Times New Viking, Fresh & Onlys, Hunx & His Punks, Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, PENS or Swedish gods bob hund and Broder Daniel we'll keep the dancefloor sweaty and full of love*
To help kick off our first night we've invited our favourite club UPSET THE RHYTHM who'll be putting on The Sticks to launch their new crashing and tumbling record as well as the amazing post-punky bands La La Vasquez and Human RACE.
So simple. Bands till around 11:30 and then So Tough! So Cute! will provide the dancing of your life.

*If you're new to So Tough! So Cute!, and we can see that there are some of you, yes you in the corner, you might want to click on mixtapes and playlists on the right to see what we're all about. Basically we started the night all those years ago to have a place to dance to the songs we sang along to and jump to in our bedrooms but then didn't get to hear when going to clubs. We really like early punk, labels like Rough Trade, Postcard, Sarah, Factory, early Creation and bands that took influence from that DIY meets Pop feeling. While we may geek over b-sides we always try to play dancable stuff as there's nothing that's makes us happier than smiles and eyes that say oh-my-god-did-they-really-play-that-song-I-always-wanted-to-hear-that-song-in-a-club.
