Half My Heart Beats 24 this Saturday

Flying Duck poster

It feels like a long time since we've been at The Flying Duck, what with Indietracks and everything, but we're back this Saturday to mark two full years of Half My Heart Beats.

No bands this time, but we'll be playing current and classic indiepop, 60s girl groups and a hell of a lot more from 11pm until 3am. You'd be a plum to miss it.
