Too Cute To Puke brings the girls to the front and plays strictly female-fronted tunes at Grand in Malmö. Anything goes; punk, indie pop, soul, new wave, sixties girl-groups, yé-yé, punk, post-punk, riot grrrl… — as long as it's sung by a girl we're putting it on the turntables. Free entry before 23:00 (note: come earlier and avoid the usual queue).
Live: The Stargazer Lilies
“Their sound was described in Spin Magazine as a "reverb-washed slo-mo assault of Slowdive with the sparkling ambiance of air channeled into a lush, guitar-swollen whole. Psych-fuzz epic.” Pop Matters says, “The Stargazer Lilies possess a truly widescreen, cinematic sound with crescendos that build cascading waves of sound enveloping your whole body. The music is a bit darker than standard dream pop fare, but that only makes it that much more mesmerizing.” Brad Laner of Medicine describes them like this: “This is what your socalled shoegaze is supposed to sound like. Incredible melodies and singing plus great guitar work.”.
