Sensational Strobones Play Live!! Friday 22 Nov.

IMG_0395The Oxymoron are pleased to announce The Strobotones will be playing a gig here as the festive season gets into full swing, with Colin Gajewski .on support. The Strobotones are a London based three piece, formed in 2017. They have released an E.P The Music Plays On and a single Here’s to the Lovers which I might add is fantastic (the video was part-filmed at The Oxymoron too). Their music combines a highly melodic, accessible songwriting style rooted in Americana and folk with an expansive, atmospheric sound drawing on Jazz, Electronica and Funk.
Colin Gajewski will be playing a more folk oriented set of cerebral yet heartfelt songs to warm us up and take the edge off the November chill.

Strobonotonic action starts at 8pm but get here earlier if you want a table.

This is an all-welcome, free gig of live music….a kind of pre-xmas gift from us to our customers, because #kenningtonrocksactually

Get Festive at The Oxymoron

We have been accused of being the ultimate Xmas Pub. Probably because our cheer, beer and decor exceed expectations all year, especially come Halloween and Christmas. We generally manage to accommodate quite a jovial crowd most nights, but things can get busy around the end of the year, which is why it would be a good idea to contact us if you wish to book some seating around a table or two.

Best contact would be email: or through our facebook page: The Oxymoron.

We can also negotiate prices on bottles of wine and Prosecco if you think you are going to get through a fair bit.
