Concert tips:

Joel Alme tonight at Pustervik, The Vaccines at Pustervik on Sunday night. Should both be worth it.

And yeah, do check out Palma Violets. Took me a few listens, but I really like the cheering/shouting style, has a bit the aggressiveness bands like The Cribs can have. Try, maybe it works on you ;)

Your essential dose of Indie, Britpop, Mod, Northern Soul & Garage Rock, every Friday. Cool stuff from the 60s to now: unsigned bands, rare tracks and acoustic versions, but also big artists and big hits. The rockinest way to start the weekend!
