Unit Nine - Milton Keynes - is a great space, a warehouse unit that has been converted into a recording studio and events venue.
When you walk in the first thing you'll notice are the walls which have graffiti superhero artwork. Then you'll see the stage and bar and it will become obvious that someone with a good understanding of club-nights has designed the space to be clubber friendly.
This is not a nightclub, its a venue for live music and clubbing events; Unit Nine plays host to indie bands, credible tribute acts through to being a regular venue for Drum and Bass and Hardcore nights; Nicky Blackmarket, DJ Hype, Whizzkid and Hixxy are frequently on line-ups at Unit Nine; our own BK with Sam Townend have appeared there under their Tuff London persona.
Beyond the club events the venue has, they have a strong community focus and run several youth projects; the emphasis to provide an avenue for youngsters to try something creative which they may not otherwise have the chance to do.
