Over the May bank holiday weekend Chik Budo played at the Dot to Dot Festival. The first day we played in Bristol at The Cooler. We played to a packed-out venue, even though it was still early in the day. The crowd was very enthusiastic, and got really into the music. We spent the rest of the day hanging out at the festival, checking out bands. One of the highlights was Friendly Fires' set at the Academy. We had some excellent Spanish food, then partied at The Thekla until late/early.
The next day we got up early to drive to Nottingham to play at the Nottingham Trent Student's Union. We were a bit bleary-eyed but luckily our rider included a crate of energy drinks to see us through. The crowd was a bit more timid than Bristol, but we still had a great time. After the set we said our goodbyes an headed back to London.
Here's a clip of our set in Bristol. The crazy-dancing guy is 'Big Jeff', a local music afficinado and celebrity, we were honoured by his presence:
