Half My Heart Beats at The 78 this Saturday

We're back at The 78 for our monthly mini Half My Heart Beats this Saturday night. We play mellow indiepop, anti-folk and shoegaze from 9pm til midnight, and it's free!

In other news, we're on the verge of announcing at least three popshows that will be happening this summer, so keep an eye out for that. We've got some great, great bands lined up.

Lynsey and Colin DJing at The Hidden Cameras

The Hidden Cameras A3 low res

Sorry for the late notice, but we will be DJing tomorrow night at Stereo on Renfield Lane, Glasgow for The Hidden Cameras' return to Glasgow. Reports from London and other shows so far on this tour have been glowing - sounds like we're in for a treat!

We'll be spinning a few between the bands and carrying on afterwards until 3am. The afterparty takes the form of a club night called Unite, and we'll be joined by ex-Twee-as-Fuckers Baby Honey from that London. Entry is free if you've been at the popshow or £3 if you've not.

Oh, and support comes from our favourite Glasgwegian indiepopsters, The Just Joans!

Photos from Half My Heart Beats 19

Thanks to everyone who came to Half My Heart Beats on Saturday and made it one of the most fun nights we've had since starting all this. The bands were incredible and we had a blast.

You can hear the lovely people at the Students For Scarves And Charm radio show on Subcity Radio talking a bit about the night on their last show (around the 17-18 minute mark), so have a listen to that.
