Half My Heart Beats DJs at The Hidden Cameras

The Hidden Cameras

We're very excited to announce that indiepop legends The Hidden Cameras are coming to Glasgow, and the two of us (Lynsey and Colin) will be playing records on the night.

The gig is taking place at Stereo on Renfield Lane, Glasgow on Saturday 20th March. There will hopefully be an after-party at another location, and if so, we'll be DJing there too. More info on that when we get it.

Tickets for this gig are available from the promoter, Bubblegum Records, Monorail Music and Tickets Scotland.

Tickets on sale for The School, Allo, Darlin' and The Social Services

The School flyer

Tickets are now on sale for the popshow we're putting on in March with The School, Allo, Darlin' and The Social Services. The link to the ticket page is in the sidebar on the right, but here it is again just in case.

The above flyer was designed for us by Lynsey's talented friend Charli. The shonky-looking text was added by me but the drawing is all Charli's work.

In case you've forgotten what the March gig is all about, there's more on the bands here.
