Calling On Bands To ' Play Your Respects ' To The Bull And Gate
17th February 2013
Share:
As you may be aware from various media reports over the last week the The Bull & Gate in Kentish Town will sadly be closing it's doors to live music on Saturday 4th May. The venue has been a favourite for both bands and fans for over 30 years and we'd like to invite any bands that would like to play the venue for one last time to get in touch and Play Their Respects.

Many people been part of the fabric of The Bull & Gate over the years either as a band, promoter, manager or fan and we'd like to get these final few months full of bands that have previously played the venue and give the old place the send off it really deserves.

Since 1980 a small, slightly smelly, part of the Kentish Town Road has been a home-from-home for hundreds of young hopefuls seeking to make their way in the musical world. For the past 11,680-ish nights the Bull & Gate has put its balls on the line and the good, the bad and the most maddening of bands on its stage, aided by a perfectly aligned live room and a frankly excellent PA. It may not always have been pretty. But it was always pretty bloody interesting.

Club Fandango took over the Bull & Gate diary on June 1 st 2010. We brought with us the likes of mybandsbetterthanyourband, BBH, Steve Lamacqs Going Deaf For A Living, PRS, Amazing Radio, Killing Moon, Best Of Myspace, fierce pandas Bamboooozled and AIM-endorsed Labelled With Love shows with record companies such as Xtra Mile, Too Pure, Idle Fret and Alcopop! Records. You may have played one of these nights in the past and we hope you have fond memories.

So many important bands have played The Bull & Gate in the past from Blur to The Manic Street Preachers and Arctic Monkeys to Bloc Party. Unbelievably, right at the end of the last century some bunch of chancers called Club Panda put on some bunch of badly-dressed indie hopefuls called Coldplay not once, but twice.

But alas the entire building has been sold to the Youngs chain and will be closed for refurbishment. It is expected to reopen as a pub restaurant in the summer, with no live music.
So, if you would like to come and play your respects to The Bull & Gate one last time between now and Sat 4th May then get in touch by e-mailing bookings@clubfandango.co.uk
