Indie night winds down

London indie pop institution Twee As Fuck is set to shut its doors with a spectacular finale.

In these days of landfill British rock, when the term 'indie' is being dragged through the gutter, it sometimes seems as if the music and spirit of the 80s indie rock underground has been forgotten.

However recently a revival (of sorts) has seen terms like C86 become commonplace again. Pure and simple indie pop has come pouring out of Brooklyn with groups such as The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart issuing hushed hymnals for aspiring teens.

In London, a number of club nights have stamped home their message. Twee As Fuck has partied hard over the past few years, dragging indie pop back into the public domain.

Now the club night which swapped beer for cup cakes is set to finish. The organisers have arranged for one final bash, however, which brings together indie legends with promising newcomers.

Held in the Buffalo Bar, Twee As Fuck is set to bring the curtain down for the last time with a set from Comet Gain. The indie legends blend 60s pop with indie shimmer, adopting a Northern Soul swagger along the way.

Support on the night will come from Veronica Falls. Made up of exiles from indie pop heroes The Royal We and Sexy Kids, the band have impressed this year with some startling shows across the country.

DJs on the night will come from old favourites such as Nitty Gritty, Hatcham Social, Olly Parker as well as Kip and Peggy from The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart.

The last ever Twee As Fuck takes place on the following date:

December
11 London Buffalo Bar
