So Tough! So Cute! Club Info


So Tough! So Cute! is a club night, currently based in Malmö Sweden, playing records for boys and girls who pogo in their bedrooms, in front of the mirror, even when their mums are at home. The music policy is primarily Indie Pop, Northern Soul, Punk, Riot Grrrl and Girl-Groups with bits of Ska, Garage and Post-Punk thrown in for good measure.

The club originally started in Malmö, Sweden in June 2007 after the end of the You Can't Hide Your Love Forever club. In October 2009 the club moved to London, first at the Buffalo Bar in Highbury & Islington and then at The Drop and The Waiting Room in Stoke Newington. As of 2014 we're back in Malmö.

The club's name is taken from the Slits song 'So Tough' and 'So Cute' refers to the term 'cutie' used to describe the mock child-like imagery of the bands involved in the indie pop scene of the mid eighties-early nineties.
