The Good, The Bad And The Ugly of a Free Gig

Entertainment, Music
Twin Peaks took time out from their European tour to play a gig in London - for free. Reporter: Chelsea Jobe | Sub-Editor: Alex Clement American indie band Twin Peaks performed a free gig at Urban Outfitters in Shoreditch last night. After playing at nightclub Scala the night before, the band decided to hold an impromptu gig. But is there a difference between a paid and a free gig?

So it’s that time of the year again. Get your tissues at the ready, it’s the final of The Great British Bake Off. Reporter: Alex Clement | Sub-Editor: Sasha Wickenden Live blogging was easy they said, not when it's the final of the Bake Off. Where do we even begin? 20:00: The first thing we all like to hear on a Wednesday evening is the sound of Mel and Sue, naturally. Their familiar heartwarming voices narrate the start as they introduce the show, one last time. Then it begins, the magic that is the Bake Off theme tune. This reminds you that you no longer have time to finish making that cup of tea, it’s started and you need to sit down and watch. We start off with Jane. Her flashbacks from her bakes from day one, then Candice then Andrew. How cute. Candice makes a comment on h

Justin Timberlake, who could have been in serious trouble simply because of an Instagram picture, is now safe. And all he wanted was to convince the American public to go out there and vote. Reporter: Natalia Sokolowska | Sub-Editor: Alex Clement On Monday 24th October, the actor posted a picture of himself at the polling station on social media. He flew in from California to his home town of Memphis just for this occasion, to take advantage of the early vote. Last year Tennessee governor, Bill Haslam, signed a bill which allows people to use their phones at all polling stations for “informational purposes to assist the voter in making election decisions”, but does not allow taking pictures, record videos or make any phone calls.
