Hi how are you? We have lots of club nights coming up but we'd like to start by informing our UK friends that So Tough! So Cute! will return to London on Friday 24th September! It's been a while but we're back at the magnificent Drop in Stoke Newington to make you dance and sing and have the bestest night out ever. Facebook event is here
But fear not we're gonna do a few more nights left in Malmö, Sweden. Everybody on board? Right, let's do this.
▲On Thursday 22 July we've got a Smiths and Morrissey special to celebrate 25 years since Meat Is Murder came out. Our guest-DJ will be A Maltese Ponce who played records last time we had a Smiths special so get ready for a workout on the dancefloor. This is at Deep, it's free before midnight and we open at 23.
▲Pop Punk Love is a three day... dare we say Popfest? We've got a geeky night on Friday 30th July, a dancefloor madness night with supreme DJ the Mongonaut from Gothenburg on Saturday and on the 1st August we have a sunny Sunday with four bands playing. Full program looks like this and is free.

▲On Thursday 5th August we're having a Manchester and Britpop special at Deep. Expect all the massive tunes and hits from your big brothers or sisters record collection. You know those with spaced out Pollock-esque covers and androgynous boys and girls with painted on flowery shirts
▲Thursday 19th August at Deep we have a visitor from London. The lovely Ian Watson of How Does It Feel To Be Loved come to Malmö for the third time to bring his special blend of indiepop and sixties soul to the dancefloor. Things really don't get better when you have Ian behind the decks.
▲Saturday 21st August we're extremely happy to say that we have the mighty Pains Of Being Pure At Heart DJ-ing at Retro. That's right, So Tough! So Cute! brings you the official after party to their gig at the Malmö Festival. The Indiepop happening of the summer! We heard Peggy DJ at the Old Blue Last in London and it was so much fun so we're really looking forward to hear what the whole gangs picks
▲Just a week after, on Saturday 29th August we bring you a magic night of indiepop, girl-groups and fun fun fun at Retro. Singalong twee pop anthems wrestle with punk classics and heartbreak girl-groups!
▲The last night at Deep on Thursday 2nd September we feel that a mod-ish sixties pop and northern soul night might be in order. Or why not a Belle & Sebastian special? Truth be told, we haven't decided yet but we're open to your suggestions. A pure request night maybe? A Soulboy vs Belle & Sebastian night? Stuart once sang the he could dance like a soulboy.
▲The last So Tough! So Cute! in Sweden is on Thursday 9th September before we go back to London will be, as tradition goes, at Debaser. And as usual we have a exciting band we love on stage. This time it's the magnificent Jeffrey Lewis & The Junkyard. So so so happy about this. We saw Jeffrey at the Brixton Windmill and it was all we ha dreamed of.
▲And then as we mentioned at the beginning of this post we're back in London at the Drop in Stoke Newington on Friday 24th September to bring you the best in indiepop and sixties soul dancing mixed up with Swedish indie anthems, Ska and Punk singles from '77
