Dirty Pretty Things have been confirmed as headliners for this year’s Dot To Dot Festival on the Nottingham leg of the event. Carl Barât et al should have completed their second album by then, the follow-up to 2006’s ‘Waterloo To Anywhere’. The foursome are set to play the Saturday night of the festival on the 24th May. Amongst the other acts joining them that night are The Little Ones and The Holloways. Dirty Pretty Things have a couple of other shows lined up. On March 2nd they’ll play the ‘Consequences Live’ charity event at the Camden Roundhouse, with all proceeds from the all-dayer going to Crisis. Also scheduled in April, is an appearance at the inaugural Snowbombing Festival in Mayrhofen, Austria.
Rumors of a British tour at the end of May are rife. For the moment we have two dates:
- Astoria London TUE 27/05/2008 tickets on sale 06/03/2008 09.00
- Corn Exchange Brighton WED 28/05/2008 19:30 tickets on sale 06/03/2008 09:00 (from gigsandtours).
Don't forget: LMHR supporters from across the country will be gathering in central London on 1st March at Unite Against Fascism's national conference. Artists including Dirty Pretty Things, Bashy, Natty, No.Lay and Snakeyman will be taking part in a LMHR Q&A, in a session devoted to organising the 27th April Victoria Park Carnival.
Carl Barat has revealed his unusual recipe for writing. He said: "I need anger to write. It's a very useful tool". Well, let's hope all the recent partying got him annoyed enough.
Oh, of course everybody has seen this. I suggest we all sit down, grab popcorn and see what happens, right?
