Poppets (from Sweden) touring w/ the Sweet Sixteens – 2010 dates (starting in NYC tonight)

by Bill Pearis


Low-fi twee pop from two continents are joining forces for a summer tour that starts tonight (7/14) at Cake Shop. Swedish duo Poppets are of the bubblegum punk variety and are as tuneful as they are tinny. Sweet Sixteens, from Indiana, are more on the cheap Casio keyboard side of the twee coin. Both are bound to be selling a variety of 7″ and cassettes at the merch table. It’s a veritable cute overload. Take that as an invitation or a warning.

The tour runs through July and hits most of the East Coast and Midwest. Poppets live video, a flyer for the Cake shop show and all tour dates are below.
