Soft Play, Nova Twins and Lambrini Girls are set to play a gig tonight, Wednesday, September 20, at a special event to launch a new line of Fender electric guitars and basses.
What’s more, there’ll be a DJ set from Primal Scream’s Simone Marie, the bassist for the Scottish rock band who last played the Marquee Club in 2002.
Tonight’s show will be held at a pop-up in Soho and will see the revival of London’s Marquee Club – an iconic music venue first established in 1958 which played host to the likes of Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones and The Sex Pistols.
The decision in reviving this legendary hub was designed to mirror the line of vintage Vintera II guitars being launched by Fender, which Soft Play, Nova Twins and Lambrini Girls are all set to perform with.
A highly limited number of free tickets are available now via a raffle, which can be found here, with the full address, details and lineup below.
WHEN – Doors open: 7pm.
WHERE – 26 Denmark St, London, WC2H 8NJ.
STAGE TIMES – Lambrini Girls: 7:30pm; Nova Twins: 8:30pm; Soft Play: 9:30pm
Ahead of the gig, Soft Play – who recently released single ‘Punk’s Dead’ to mark their long-awaited return – have spoken of their excitement to play the one-off show, with drummer and vocalist Isaac Holman saying:
“We’re absolutely buzzing to take the stage at the pop-up of the legendary Marquee Club and be part of the Vintera II launch event.
“Laurie [Vincent] and I are really enjoying being back on the gig circuit and can’t wait to bring an unforgettable experience to our fans, while supporting this new era of music gear.”
The BRIT and MOBO-nominated Nova Twins, meanwhile, have added some words of their own, especially on the special return of the Marquee Club for one night only, saying:
“We’re always here to celebrate the London punk scene, it’s what birthed us.
“We’re really excited to be playing the legendary Marquee Club and can’t wait to tear it up with Soft Play and Lambrini Girls!”
The initial Vintera series debuted in 2019, and its brand-new Vintera II series pays homage to the Fender guitars of the ‘50s, ‘60s, and ‘70s, with modern features.
It comes with custom colour options for some of Fender’s iconic models, whilst also offering new sought-after treasures like the 70’s Jaguar and 60’s Bass VI.
