Welcome to Old School Indie...

Old School Indie is all about indie! It's about the indie hits we know and love, and the roots of indie as we know it now. It's just good old fashioned fun, dancing to old and new indie tunes, some rock and roll, soul, synth-pop and a few other special events thrown in for good measure. This is indie for those that love music... we’ll leave the bloke-rock and chin-scratching to others.
Are you in a band?
