The AutistiX are an extraordinary six piece rock band. And it’s not just their sound that makes them unique - three of their members are talented musicians with autism.
On Thursday the 26th of November at 6.30pm, The AutistiX will be sharing their story at Pentagram.
We will start by screening two brilliant short films.
The first, I Used To Be Famous, is about a washed up singer from an ex-noughties boy band and a young gifted musician with autism inspired by Saul from The AutistiX. The film is in competition for Best British Short at Leeds International Film Festival.
The second is The AutistiX, a documentary chronicling the story of the band showing that people with autism are as talented and able as anyone else.
The screening will be followed by a brief Q&A with Superplex Pictures, who produced I Used To Be Famous, Grasp The Nettle, who produced The AutistiX documentary and Sunsan Zur-Szpiro, The AutistiX’s Manager.
The event will be rounded up with a performance by The AutistiX.
Please join us for an evening of fun, drinks, music and talent.
Spaces are limited so please RSVP to email@example.com to save a spot.
The AutistiX next gig is at Pentagram, the renowned Designer/Branding Company on Thursday 26th November at 6.30pm.
The AutistiX are playing at London Southbank University's Student Union for the Psychology Society on Wednesday 18th November.
The AutistiX are looking forward to performing to help relaunch the Psychology Society at the London South Bank University's Student Union. We are playing a really long (one hour) set so will have a chance to play our old favourites plus new songs and a few covers so there will be something for everyone ! We are delighted to be invited back after our gig there last year. So LSBU students make sure you come along and bring fellow students and all of the staff too! No one is too old to rock and roll!
The AutistiX enjoyed taking a break from writing to new songs to perform in the Oxjam Festival . First, the film makers filmed Saul in his music session with his specialist music instructor Gary Day from Garden of Music, then dashed over to Jack's to spend some time, then to collect Luke to come over to load up our gear for the evening's gig and to see our young musicians Jack and Luke were interviewed live on LBC radio asked about their experience of having autism. As soon as they finished we loaded up our gear to depart for SE London to New Cross to perform our gig. We played our latest song 'My Future Life' and some other of our long established songs. The film makers came along too to record us for the programme they are making about The AutistiX to televise in Germany later this year.

After the summer holiday, The AutistiX were keen to get together for our first gig after the break - our live performance at the private film premiere of 'I Used To Be Famous' made by Superplex Pictures. The screenings and the gig were held at a great music venue in the city, Richmix. There are two lead characters: a washed up ex boy band musician (Vince) and a musician with autism who is a drummer (Stevie). The drummer in the film was inspired by our own drummer Saul. He also had a cameo role in the film! The excited audience were treated to three films, 'Just Desserts' made by Superplex, then our minidoc 'Autism Rocks- The AutistiX' and then 'I Used To Be Famous'. Our minidoc was very well received - people clapped so loudly! The after the 3 films and the Q and A about 'I Used To Be Famous' we performed for the guests. As well our other songs we performed our newwest song 'My Future Life' for the first time. It sounds great!
