We just can't get enough of dancing and pogoing to our favourite records so we're throwing a So Tough! So Cute! dance party at the lovely new venue the Drop on Stoke Newington High Street. Start the weekend a day early with us and come dance to lots of indiepop, 'twee', Swedish indie, sixties soul, girl-groups and post-punk. We play sing-along heartracing fists-in-the-sky pop songs and make out with someone we probably shouldn't make out with. Fringes, polkadot dresses and dancing around hand bags is encouraged. You too girls.
