Photos and Playlist from Too Cute To Puke with Stephanie Goodman

Thanks everyone for a great night! We took over the big room at Moriskan - a bit scary at first - and put on an amazing party! Our guest Stephanie Goodman played tons and tons and tons of great songs and had the dancefloor bouncing up and down. You people are the best! More photos from previous nights in our photo album and Stephs playlist after the jump!

A little bit late but here are the photos and what we played when Ellen was our guest-DJ. A fantastic night with so much chaos-dancing and confetti flying.

Guest Mixtape 22: So Tough! So Cute! Mix by Erika Elizabeth of Expressway To Yr Skull

So Tough! So Cute! mixtape drawn by Erika Elizabeth

Expressway To Yr Skull is a college radio show - yes, a real radio show! - on WMUA at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. We ran into it maybe a year ago while googling some obscure New Zealand Flying Nun songs and it quickly became a must listen in our hunt for new music and classics we've missed.

Erika Elizabeth has hosted the show with the occasional guest since 2008 and plays many a great pop songs your new boyfriend or girlfriend is too stupid to know about. On a typical show you get to hear DIY punk, C86 and jangle pop; girls in the garage and Nuggets mixed up with French ye-ye, noise pop and Flying Nun style indie. And most of it is actually comes from her personal vinyl collection! So cool.

Erika has this great voice (which we may have a bit of a crush on) guiding you through it all with info on labels and releases and we always find something new to play at our clubs. Our favourite find from the last few shows is Joyride! - a great indiepop band from San Francisco. Another thing we like is she plays these, often crazy, Thai, bollywood and other international records in the background which makes a nice contrast.

On every show Erika tends to have a these short 3-5 song bursts of strictly femme fronted bands which, as you can probably guess, is the bit we like the most, so we asked her to put together a mixtape full of girl fronted tunes. It's a really great one so we hope you like it too. And since it's pretty hot today - yay summer! -  we would recommend a nice chilled hoppy IPA to go with this.

You can subscribe and listen to old shows at the Expressway To Yr Skull website and thank you so much Erika for doing this mix for us!
