Here’s a concert for gig hunters to get genuinely hyped for. The Presets are playing an intimate gig at Sydney’s iconic nightclub Club 77 thanks to Smirnoff Seltzer. Part of a series of live gigs, the event plan to breathe fresh life into the music scene and place some of Australia’s biggest musicians back where they started. Dubbed Smirnoff Origins, it aims to shed light on the role of live music in spotlighting budding talent. Leading the pack is one of Australia’s biggest Electronic music acts The Presets who take to the stage in February next year.
The Presets to perform at Club 77
The club played a prominent role in the band’s early years, honing their skills as live performers and paving the way for more opportunities. Club 77 is also referenced in their debut album Beams which came out in 2005. Now 17 years later, the band will return for the first Smirnoff Origins act with more artists and venues to be announced.
“We’re thrilled to head back to Club 77 to play at Smirnoff Origins, a venue that was so special to us coming up in Sydney music. Live music venues like this play such an important role in supporting up-and-coming musicians and we’re on the lookout for an emerging artist to open our Smirnoff Origins show so we can pay it forward and create an opportunity for the next generation of artists,” Julian Hamilton from The Presets said.

Live music is one of the many industries to have taken a beating during and post-lockdown, but with summer around the corner and Christmas festivities lighting things up, this is the perfect opportunity to head out and lend support to local artists.
The Presets will perform at Club 77 for a one-night-only gig on Thursday, February 2, 2023 with the next Smirnoff Origins show to be held in Brisbane. Tickets are already up for grabs and you can snag some here.
