The Last So Tough! So Cute in London at The Macbeth in Hoxton 20th December

Come and dance, get drunk, get laid with someone you probably should get laid with, rip it up and start it all over again. It's the last So Tough! So Cute! in London. It's been a bumpy ride and we'd love to see you and give you a hug!

We've been falling a bit behind with telling you about our parties but we hope you follow our Facebook group for the club in Sweden. The UK one is a bit on hold so So Tough! So Cute! on 20th December at the Macbeth in London is the last one for a while. But more on that next update.

Alice Samoilova is a vinyl only DJ whose been putting on quite a few nights here in Malmö. Everybody Gets Lonely Orchestra was a fun sixties/indie night that had a house band playing for the dancefloor. The Clitts was her dynamic girl group band. She was a booker and DJ for Ryska Posten which brought Russian acts to Sweden and she was a dance teacher for Indiegympan Heartbeats! - an indiependendent dancegroup. It's super fun that she has agreed to come play her favourite femme fronted records at Too Cute To Puke. Expect a lot of soul, indie and maybe a few Russian girl-groups!

We also have a surprise visit at midnight so make sure you're here in time to see it!

Here's a Spotify mix Alice put together!
