Chicago-based band Twin Peaks performed at Purdue University with Cage the Elephant in Spring 2017. The Student Concert Committee is excited to bring back a fan favorite and present them in a club setting at The Anvil.
In 2017, Twin Peaks performed at Purdue University with Cage the Elephant. Rachel Silber, SCC president, explained that “the Purdue Student Concert Committee is super excited to bring back a fan favorite from 2017 and present them in a club setting!”
Born of Chicago’s league-leading DIY scene and with several of them remaining friends since elementary school, Cadien Lake James, Clay Frankel, Connor Brodner, Jack Dolan, and most recent addition Colin Croom share an enthusiasm, authenticity and passion their audiences have found contagious. In the three years since dropping out of college to support their debut album ‘Sunken,’ the band has covered a lot of ground. Twin Peaks have played to ever-increasing crowds, bigger and rowdier each time they come barreling into a city; they were anointed “Best New Band” by NME and countless other blogs, and they have performed for (and partied with) more than hospitable masses at festivals in the states and Europe, including Pitchfork, Lollapalooza, Reading & Leeds, and Roskilde. In between all this action, the group set up camp in the summer of 2015 amidst the solitude of a murky lake in Western Massachusetts, where they could experiment and record on their own terms in the warm living room of a good friend’s house.

In the cold early months of 2016, Aaron Becker, Garrett Johnston, and Sean West began a mysterious project that would become Stay Outside. After a perplexing countdown on Stay Outside’s website unveiled the project, the band began to generate buzz through radio interviews, hilarious YouTube Sketches, and of course its explosive live performances.
While giving nods to alt-rock greats like Thrice and Manchester Orchestra, Stay Outside developed a unique brand of emotionally drenched indie-rock. With lyrical themes of wandering and searching for hope, Aaron Becker has penned songs that will resonate with listeners in any phase of life.
Stay Outside’s debut EP, “Okay, For Now.” released in June of 2016 and can be purchased or streamed wherever digital music is available. facebook.com/StayOutsideOfficial
Each semester through on-line survey and in-person tabling on campus, the Student Concert Committee is continually asked to produce events in standing-room, general admission settings. With this student request in mind, SCC is proud to introduce The Anvil to all fans of live music and entertainment on campus. Located at the corner of North and Grant Street across the street from the Purdue Memorial Union and Grant Street Parking Garage, the Anvil serves as a co-working space for Purdue University students and entrepreneurs seeking to take their ideas further. Formerly home to the space occupied by the University Church, SCC is excited to take an entrepreneurial approach to concert promotion and turn the area into Purdue’s newest venue space.
