Fortuna POP! are calling it a day after 20 years.
The label was a huge influence on us starting Scared To Dance back in 2009 with seminal albums from Allo Darlin’ and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart wanting us to start an indiepop club night and do it yourself.
To celebrate they’re hosting a mini-festival called Twenty Years of Trouble with a bunch of bands who have been on the label. We will be DJing at their final show on Sunday 25th March at the Scala which Martha headline.

The Sprinter kicks off on Tuesday 3rd January with Ultimate Painting, The Wharves and Girl Ray. On Thursday 5th January there’s Haiku Salut, Trust Fund and Totally. Then on the final night The Just Joans play with Expert Alterations and Bill Botting & The Two Drink Minimums.
Four nights, twelve bands, DJs, the perfect antidote to the post-Christmas in the intimate surroundings of The Lexington. For the final sprinter, and with the Fortuna POP! Twenty Years of Trouble shows in March looming, they’ve booked some of their favourite bands not on the Fortuna POP! label (and one that is) for this unmissable curtain-raiser to the year.
One of our favourite bands, and one of the reasons we started Scared To Dance, Allo Darlin’ are calling it a day.
They’re going to be playing three final shows in December to say goodbye. We’ll be DJing at the penultimate gig at Moth Club on Saturday 10th December where support comes from our friends The Hayman Kupa Band.
