Makeout Point play powerful indiepop painted in layers of shoegaze, midwest-emo and punk. They describe the music as "indie violence" - as one might expect equal parts moshpit as necking. Imagine Minor Threat tried to do a cover of the Clueless soundtrack or festivalrykten put it, "It is as if Cymbals Eat Guitars and LVL UP tried running of The Cure with a steamroller, and formed a single large colorful explosion."
The band has just released their first EP on the label Youth Recordings, which is also available for sale during the evening.
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 admission before midnight.
