Music at the Bull and Gate

The Bull and Gate located in Islington borough of London

Providing a venue for live music nearly every night

An evening game of cards played by some friends before before Saturday's show.

Bull and Gate held a solid four band performance this past Saturday night.

Combining guitar, a little snare drum rhythm, and the use of a sampler, Amity creates incredible music from her one man band.

Incorporating the guitar, drums, banjo, violin, xylophone, and cello, Pocket Satellite is one multi-talented indiepop band. "I actually really hate lemonade, but they said it'd make me feel better," said Pocket Satellite's lead singer, Maya. Maya's melodious vocals were dead on. You would've have never guessed Maya was feeling a tad "seasick" Saturday night.

"Over the past few days our band has kind of fallen apart, but these are the remains. Hope you like it," said the lead singer of Dan Shears and The Velveteen Orkestra. Missing most of the orchestra, the now 3-piece band put on a rather good show. With strong vocals and a wide range, the lead singer reminded me oddly of Muse.

Nicola Barghi raps up the night with their electric Italian pop-styled music.

Lead singer and guitarist Nicola Barghi plays some rather electric tunes.
