Rip It Up And Start Again

As you may or may not have heard we got completely and utterly screwed over by our venue of six years Retro in Malmö. So while we get another permanent home we will be doing some pop-up appearances here and there. Moriska Paviljongen has kindly offered us the 4th April, yes that is indeed a Wednesday, and we hope all of you regulars can offer your support and party even though it is a school night. Hopefully if everybody turns up and makes it a good old proper So Tough! So Cute! night we can convince the venue to move us to weekends and business as usual. Anyway here's the details and we hope to see you!

So Tough! So Cute!
