Marcella and The Forget Me Nots
EVENING OF TWO CONCERTS
Marcella and The Forget Me Nots are fast becoming one of the most talked about bands in London’s alternative music scene. Impossible to categorise and with influences as diverse as 1930’s Berlin, Klaus Nomi’s Baroque avant-garde and the art school rock bands of the 1970s, Marcella and her 7-strong all-female orchestra have been gaining accolades from magazines such as Brazilian Vogue, Bizarre Magazine and tastemakers’ choice Wears The Trousers. The orchestra first debuted in 2008 at The Chelsea Theatre’s Sacred Season of Performance Art – for which Marcella wrote a very successful site-specific show based on stories collected from Chelsea residents.
