There’s now a popular live music night for teenagers to hang out with their friends and see local bands play in Buxton.
Taking place bi-monthly on a Friday night at the Pavilion Arts Centre, Indigo Nights is a place for 13 to 17 year-old to kick back and enjoy some quality time with their friends.
With soft drinks, snacks, a ‘selfie corner’ and themed best dressed competitions with prizes; it’s an eventful night with plenty going on.
The next Indigo Night takes place this Friday (18 March) with three young bands taking to the stage, The Twisted, Wolf and the Storm, and Anonymous.
The Twisted Wheel is a high-energy rock band from Bakewell. With punchy bass, gritty guitar and kickass drumming, the band have firmly established themselves locally (including a set at the respected Birchover Music Festival).
Wolf in the Storm is an indie rock outfit featuring Kel Bennett, Louis Fox and Alex Hughes. The band are from Buxton and Manchester and since forming have played a number of gigs in the surrounding area, including supporting punk legend Toyah Wilcox during her visit to the north-west last year.
Anonymous are a thunderous up-and-coming four piece rock band from Staffordshire. Due to their aggressive, no-nonsense approach with huge riffs and monstrous rhythms, the band has been described as, “a band to watch out for.” Their track Breaking Bad secured the number one spot on Tradiio’s UK Metal Charts and held onto the top spot for eight consecutive weeks.
Indigo Nights takes place on Friday (18 March) and following that it returns on Friday, May 20. The doors open at 7pm and the lights go up at 10pm. Tickets cost £5 or £3 for Young Company members.
