Celebrating the Indie 80s

Preston’s 80s indie scene is being celebrated next month.

Saturday, 7th September 2013, 9:00 am

The Continental is hosting an all-dayer celebrating both John Peel Day and Preston’s mid- 80s venue The Twang Club, which regularly featured live sets from bands who’d been given air-time by Peel.

The day takes place on Saturday, October 26, starting at 3pm.

Two bands who played the Twang Club – Yeah Yeah Noh and The Nightingales – are on the bill as well as The Primitives, The Lovely Eggs, and the Wolfhounds.
