Beck Live at the Marquee | Irish Examiner

It was certainly a fantastic night! Although on a number of occasions I was about to get down and rock out, I caught myself and realised, it is definitely not a rock concert. It was a large venue which I reckon is more suited to rock artists in my opinion. Beck is the kind of artist that is more suited to festivals or smaller intimate gigs. He did a great job on stage with an oversized cowboy hat and skinny figure.

The man is certainly creative and unique when it comes to music production so I appreciated every minute. Check out this article below.

Tonight The Stoles play their first Cork gig in The Crane Lane Theatre tonight at 9pm. The Stoles have had much media attention recently and will be releasing their new single Man In A cave next week Thursday the 15Th of January.

To date they have played such great venues such as Wheelens Dublin and The Roisin Dubh Galway. It is exciting to have The Stoles playing Corks, Crane Lane. Not to be missed! Doors 8pm gig starts 9pm sharp. Hope to see you there 😀



No one can argue that The Stoles are not a hard working and dedicated band. In only two short years they have a four track EP, several videos and now a new single, Man In A Cave to be released. This indie rock band who are based in Dublin but who hail from other parts of  Europe including France, Germany, Poland and Portugal, form a perfect sonic collaboration. Their new single Man In A Cave is set to be released in Tower Records on January 15th where they will play a live in-store gig! Man In A Cave was recorded in Wasteland Studios Dublin whose client list include everyone from Bob Dylan to Miley Cyrus and Hozier.

The Stoles have had many great reviews:

‘This is definitely’ an independent band on the rise’, I certainly could see rock music appreciators around the world really taking a huge liking for these rocking cats! – Forkster

What makes them stand out is that they come from different schools of rock; so to speak. These include 60s glam rock, grunge, psychedelic rock, punk and metal. Putting these altogether creates a unique sound that can only be described as The Stoles sound. – AMN Australian Network 

“The Stoles are the new band to watch out for!” – BizBlitz Magazine

“This Dublin based foursome are certainly doused in potential – Pure M Magazine

“Their vibrant music pulses I reckon could really get class music appreciators grooving to their solid songs globally, I know they got me on board!” – Forksterocks Magazine
