We'll be playing from 17.00-19.00 and then 20.30-21.30 at the Kungen venue on Stortorget with a gig by Anna Ternheim inbetween! Hope to see you there!

Photos and playlist from Too Cute To Puke

This was guest-dj Ylwa and our night. Our comeback if you will. A return to form after the power out last time that made the party fizzle out just when it got going. So we were feeling it, playing hits right from the beginning, really bringing it to the dancefloor.

And then.

And then the fire alarm went off and everybody had to evacuate the venue.


But after half an hour, Malmös finest firemen gave the ok and we got it going again and turned this to probably the most fun and packed evening. I don't remember when there was so much singing along and hands in the air. Pure awesomeness.

The are a whole lot more photos in the album on Facebook and there is a playlist after these few photos but before you head off we'd like you to invite you to Too Cute To Puke at Stortorget in Malmö on the 21st August where we will be playing an all girl set at Malmöfestivalen - one of Scandinavias largest city festivals with 1.4 million visitors over 7 days.

Too Cute To Puke #16 - And I'm just about, just about, just about, to lose my mind

Baby won't you listen to me
Boy take a good look at these tears of mine
Baby, baby these tears I can't hold inside
Losin' you would end my life you see
Because you mean that much to me
You could've told me yourself
That you love somebody else

Instead I heard it through the grapevine

I got news for you, fellas: Get real. I am going to erase you. Just like a drawing.

This Saturday at Too Cute To Puke you'll be hearing high school girl out for revenge, art school drop-outs skint after spending their last penny on birth control and beer, and angsty librarians with... books. Yes. Books. 

Ylwa Skywalker will once again be joining us behind the decks as a power outage cut her set short last time. Also, because she's a great at DJ-ing and at blowing up balloons.
