A NIGHT of Mod nostalgia heads to Artrix tomorrow night to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the release of Franc Roddam’s classic cult movie Quadrophenia.
Top tribute bands The Whoo and The Quik Beats will take to the stage and be joined by a variety of guest musicians to perform hits from rock giants The Who and other iconic 1960s tracks featured in the film in a reprise of this popular Artrix original show.
In October 1979 a film burst onto cinema screens across the country that ignited a revival of the youth movement known as ‘Mod’.
It introduced new post-punk teenagers to the tribalism and music of 1960s Britain and sparked a new nostalgia for the fashion, transport and sounds of mod culture.
This show seeks to evoke the era portrayed in the movie through authentic live music performances.
To add to the atmosphere people who snap up the tickets are being urged to dress in the styles of the era depicted in the film and display their scooters and motorcycles on the theatre forecourt.
Tickets for Quadrophenia Nights, which starts at 8pm, are £18 (£16 concessions).
