“Folk or hip hop? I don’t know, but Dizraeli and The Small Gods make me realise how wonderful it is to hear real English – fluent, witty and arresting”. The Times Saturday Review

..and Irish folk singer-songwriter Marc O’Reilly will be making a welcome return to the venue November 12th. Since dropping his debut album My Friend Marx back in 2011, Marc has won over music fans across Europe on the road and appearances at festivals like Glastonbury, Electric Picnic, and Boardmasters. Tickets available here, here and here.

‘With folk and blues influences, the Irish singer songwriter stands out from the genre, easily the feral twin of Ben Howard, raised by wolves, and with all the dare in his approach to songwriting and delivery for the pair of them.’ – STV

Rock Sound 9/10 – “One of the most exciting new sounds to come out of the UK”

PUNKTASTIC.com 4.5/5 – “Vexed sees the band crank the math rock elements of their sound way beyond its predecessor, and it’s another indicator of just how far they’re able to push boundaries”
