Resofit

Stewart Lee + Dana Alexander + Tony Law + Patrick Monahan + Simon Munnery + Naz Osmanoglu. Plus VIP celebrity raffle!

Resofit is a fund-raising gala comedy night for Resonance FM - "the best radio station in London" (The Guardian). The bill, organised by Stewart Lee, sees the Comedy Underground mining upwards and onwards for independent arts radio. Three times winner of the Radio Academy’s Nations and Regions Award and in its 17th year of broadcasting, Resonance is a not-for-profit station which needs to raise cash to maintain its extraordinary 24/7 service. All proceeds from Resofit will allow Resonance to continue to remain the “home of all that is wonderfully weird” (Miranda Sawyer, The Observer) and provide ”All the sounds you never knew you needed to hear... a radio station of true variety” (Robin Ince, The Big Issue).

John Paul Jones, Thurston Moore & Steve Noble

A unique musical meeting of three of the most inventive performers of our time – for perhaps the only time - all to benefit Resonance FM! As co-founder and legendary multi-instrumentalist with Led Zeppelin, John Paul Jones needs no introduction. A restless and radical musical innovator for over half a century - as composer, arranger, and producer across genres ranging from pop to opera to electronica and avant-garde - he is joined for this intimate performance at the iconic The 100 Club by like minds in the form of Thurston Moore and Steve Noble. Thurston's ground-breaking use of extended techniques as guitarist in Sonic Youth, the most enduring of America's experimental rock bands, is matched here by the extraordinary dexterity of improvising drummer Steve, collaborator of choice of countless free jazz iconoclasts including Derek Bailey, Joe McPhee and Matthew Shipp. The three come together for an unforgettable evening to raise funds for Resonance FM - the most inventive radio station in the world. Tickets: £50 on-line here.
