On the weekend of 3-5 September 2010, we'll be playing at the Indie Pop Days festival in Berlin, as organised by the city's fantastic Let's Kiss And Make Up club night. We're playing on Saturday 4 September night in the Kreuzberg Wasserturm, which is a water tower built in the style of a middle ages castle!

The festival's line up includes an ace selection of bands from across Europe including Lucky Soul, The Sunny Street, Labrador, The Felt Tips, Le Man Avec Les Lunettes, Labrador, Still Corners and Leaving Mornington Crescent.

Here's a selection of links if you'd like to find out more:
