FROM SIMON:

People use different names, but here's what I call the tenses above.

1. I'm writing = present continuous

2. I won't be able = future simple

3. I told you I was going = past simple (told) and past continuous (I was going)

4. who's playing this Saturday = present continuous for a future plan / event

5. you'll be = future simple

6. starts = present simple used for a future event

7. I've been asked = present perfect PASSIVE

8. if you're free on Saturday = present simple used as part of a conditional about the future

9. he'll be going = future continuous

Note:
I don't think anyone who commented above mentioned the use of the present simple and continuous for future plans and events.

1. Present continuous
2. Future simple
3. Past simple
4. Present continuous for a near future event
5. Future simple
6. Present simple
7. Passive present perfect
8. Present simple for a near future event
9. Future continuous
