May Photo Diary: Dot to Dot festival and The Kills

I put together a few pictures I had from May. I left out the pictures from Paris but you can see those in my last post

I love this t-shirt from Topshop, they have a great selection of slogan tees this summer

I've been obsessed with the Alexandra Savior album Belladonna of Sadness. The music is written by Alex Turner and most of the lyrics by Alexandra (as far as I am aware). Its really sultry and cool and I would definitely recommend listening to it!

I've also been listening to the new album from Cherry Glazerr Apocalipstick. I loved the last album and I'm liking their new style, in particular I like the songs Nuclear Bomb and Trash People

I went to Dot to Dot festival this month in Bristol and it was a lot of fun. It was about £25 a ticket and it got you into most venues in Bristol. We missed the afternoon slots but we still managed to catch four or five bands

The first band we saw was Cherry Glazerr, the frontwoman Clementine Creevy is a bit nuts on stage but she's also a great guitarist, her new band members also sound really great live

I also seen The Big Moon, its my third time seeing them, I caught them earlier this year after the release of their debut album. They are a really fun indie band that I would definitely recommend going to see if you get the chance.

I also seen Pins again, they were the highlight of the night for me. They are always such a fun band to see and their new EP is really great too!

The last gig this month was the Kills at Shepherds Bush Empire in London. Although I had already seen The Kills twice in less than a year, I bought tickets for the 15th anniversary tour because I thought it would be the last time I'd get the chance to see them for a long while.

Dream Wife supported them on their London dates which was great because I love Dream Wife. Its always that little bit nicer when you know the support band too. 

The Kills always put on a great show and never disappoint. I was standing in front of Jamie this time and his guitar was very very loud. Although he sounded great, it took away from the songs a little. I'm still glad I seen them one last time!
