Stay Up Late’s big annual fundraiser for our Gig Buddies project enabling people with learning disabilities to have active social lives.

Italia 90 - "Very much rate this, and certainly don’t think that Wire, Alternative TV, Sauna Youth and Institute’s Catharsis LP are excessively flattering reference points." - The Quietus
Asbo Derek - Asbo Derek get annoyed about things they shouldn’t really get annoyed about and then turn their annoyance into great art.
2 Decks – lo-fi hip hop bangers from London to get you jumping.
The Golgis - Quirky foot tapping acoustic absurdist pantomime rock from a band unafraid to celebrate the eccentricities of everyday life? No funds raised will go to any marketing executives!

Yesterday (26.10.19) the Gate Kicks crew headed off to the Tate Modern to do a live broadcast as part of Resonance FM's week long series of broadcasts from the gallery. Much of the show was concerned with the current Nam Yung Paik exhibition which is being held there which the Tate kindly gave us free tickets to attend. You can hear an archive of the broadcast and see some pics of the day below.
Many thanks to Resonance FM and the TATE for hosting us.

Duane played guitar and I played saxophone and stick like a violin, Diane was singing, Leon played sounds and Josh played the drums. I enjoyed it. Here is a video of the band called Jamaica in Brighton with a introduction bit from Leon - Jason.

My name is Labake Anisere and I made this video to put an end to knife cime. I made this because; knife crime is not a good thing. It is cruel, disgusting and it is not acceptable. I'm hoping to reach out to all the vulnerable families and hopefully reach out to them. And, maybe people can relate to my views and let me know how they feel. I made some props; a shovel, a coffin and a headstone. On the headstone it says: RIP Knife crime. And these all feature in the video. When I made the video it made me feel upset and anxious because I wasn't sure how it would turn out. It was a very stressful process. Hope you like it.
