Manflu’s Last Ever Show

Manful have been one of those bands who, over their seven years, have become ingrained in the Lexington and everything we’re about. They’ve played for us a load of times, they’ve drank in our bar and just generally been a band we’ve been proud to call our friends. So it’s with a heavy heart that […]

My Lovely Horse

A lot of people often ask “Why have you got a picture of a big blue horse behind the bar?” The answer to that question is twofold and actually goes some way towards answering another popular question we regularly field – Why is The Lexington called The Lexington? As is often the case with a […]

SXSW Day 2

Day two of SXSW has definitely been a lot more productive, albeit it somewhat overshadowed by tragedy when a police chase tore through a crowd outside Mohawk. We did, however, manage to see quite a lot of bands and we didn’t even have to queue that long. The highlight of the day was definitely Missouri […]

SXSW Day 1

Day one at SXSW went a little something like this: we all got extremely drunk and saw zero bands.  The delivery betrays a deeper truth that exists at SXSW 2014, that it’s ludicrously busy. Last year by about Thursday it was getting hard to get in anywhere and by Saturday night, once spring break and […]
