Headlining stars New Young Pony Club and Kate Nash have played head-to-head at different venues at the end of the two-day Dot to Dot Festival in Bristol tonight (May 26).
 
It’s the first time the festival has come to Bristol, and over 30 bands such as Late of the Pier, Annuals and crowd favourites Architecture In Helsinki gave high-octane performances. The festival took place at three of Bristol’s most well-known venues, Thekla Social, Louisiana and the Fiddlers Club.
 
Kate Nash played 'Caroline is A Victim', 'Dickhead' and her new single 'Foundations' during her set at the Fiddlers, and dedicated 'Birds' to two fans in the audience for their birthday.
 
Speaking before her set on her Dot to Dot experience and how it compared to the Camden Crawl, Nash said: "I liked Kid Harpoon. I missed Laura Darling but I’ve seen her before and she was wicked.
 
"Camden’s a bit busier cos it’s much closer together, and there’re loadsa venues but it’s difficult to get into places. Like here’s OK it’s been easier, because there’s only three venues. It [Dot to Dot] could grow if they got more acts but I think keeping it small works more better."
 
She also spoke about recent Internet spoof track, 'LDN Is A Victim', which namechecks her and other recent London artists such as Lily Allen.

Nash commented: "I thought it was quite funny when I first heard it but I think it was a bit lame getting the vinyl and the T-shirts, it’s a bit like, 'Just leave it'."
 
Of the other bands, The Lovvers wowed the crowd at their Thekla show with their vigorous hardcore punk. Meanwhile, Nottingham quartet Late Of The Pier dodged flying objects from each other and the crowd to rip through schizo-rock tracks which included 'The Bears Are Coming' and 'A Heartbeat A Flicker'.
 
The show continues the following day at Nottingham with additional acts including Lethal Bizzle and The Cribs.
 
The setlist for Kate Nash was:
 
'Mariella'
'The Shit Song'
'Stitching Leggings'
'Caroline is A Victim'
'Dickhead'
'Birds'
'The Nicest Thing'
'Foundations'
'We Get On'
'Mouthwash'
'Merry Happy'
'Little Red'
