Youth Club For Rich Kids to play at Windsor bar

Indie and new-wave favourites Youth Club For Rich Kids are set to play at Havana Bar in Windsor on Sunday.

The five-piece consists of past and present Cox Green School pupils Beth Cawte, brothers Alex and Conor Hayward, Liam Cox and Harry Thomas.

Since forming last February they have played gigs across the area, including at Norden Farm and Windsor Firestation, and were finalists in last summer's Maidenhead Battle of the Bands competition.

On Friday last week they performed to more than 200 people at Cox Green and raised in excess of £500 to support the school's entry into national competition Rock Challenge UK.

Band member Harry said it went 'really well', describing the crowd as 'lively' and 'energetic'.

Pupils including Beth, Harry and Conor are set to take part in the competition's regional stage in Portsmouth next month.

Youth Club For Rich Kids are inspired by 80s bands like The Smiths, Joy Division, Bombay Bicycle Club and Metronomy and say they play the sort of music they'd listen to themselves.

Harry explained: "We started off as a group of friends just coming together and writing about experiences we had like life, love and having crazy times."

But things have gone from strength to strength and they are hoping to get some of their tracks, including recent song Goodnight Denise on iTunes by Easter.

Doors open for the gig at 7pm. Entry costs £3.
