The venue is located close to the centre of London, and within walking distance to Kings Cross Station. If you're after a mixture of underground sounds and a lounge space where you can actually hear what your mates are saying, you can't do much better than 'The Lex'. With an unashamedly American retro feel running through the decor (wooden floor, plump Chesterfield sofas and mismatched chairs, swagged red curtains) and the bar, which boasts a selection of over 40 whiskies and numerous US bottled specialty beers, it's a good place to both hear live music of an alternative variety (upstairs) and hang out (street level) until late.

Nicole Atkins has unveiled a new video for ‘Who Killed The Moonlight?’ from her ‘Slow Phaser’ album. The video was animated by the world-renowned Ilinca Hopfner who has worked with Nick Cave and Grinderman.
Having wowed UK audiences in May, Nicole Atkins has also confirmed a European tour, including 6 UK shows. Feted by Bruce Springsteen, Nicole Atkins' European tour comes on the heels of a series of North American shows supporting Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds and The Avett Brothers.
Nicole Atkins’ new album ‘Slow Phaser‘ released on her own label Oh’Mercy! Records/ Thirty Tigers in April, was praised by critics and fans alike. The album features both ‘Who Killed The Moonlight?’ and previous single ‘Girl You Look Amazing’ along with 9 other fantastic songs that make up an album Nicole is calling ‘neon noir tour de force of hi-def late-night pop’. This album marks Atkins' most ingenious and indelibly modern collection to date. Bittersweet yet life affirming, Slow Phaser is Nicole Atkins at her confident and unpredictable best - spirited, sexy, and determinedly forward thinking. Nicole Atkins collaborated with veteran drummer/producer Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, The Cramps, Teenage Jesus & The Jerks), who co-wrote three of the songs and producer Tore Johansson (Franz Ferdinand, The Cardigans) with whom she partnered on her now-classic 2007 debut, Neptune City, and with whom she also co-wrote a few songs. The album was recorded at Johansson's residential studio in Malmo, Sweden and with his able assistance, she devised a compelling, new sonic approach, melding psychedelic energy, prog rock adventurism, after hours disco ambience, and the raw emotional purity of the finest country soul.
Nicole Atkins will play six dates throughout the UK, including a show at London's The Lexington on October 24.
