If you happened to miss both the Camden Crawl as well as the Stag and Dagger, all hope is not yet lost for you catching an urban festival this season. This weekend the Dot To Dot festival runs through Bristol and Nottingham, but organisers are starting the party early in Hoxton on Thursday with the cutely-named mini-event Hox To Dot. Hopefully you were smart enough to have already requested Friday off work, but if not don't worry: it's somewhat socially acceptable to be hungover on the last day before a bank holiday weekend these days, isn't it?
Spread across five of Hoxton's most loved venues, including The Macbeth and Old Blue Last, Hox To Dot hopes to be a small crawl perfectly fit for the middle of the week. Whilst the twisted electronic pop of Dan Deacon and thick bass of Dutch electro master Legowelt will give you ample opportunities to practise your dance moves, Eugene McGuinness, Oppenheimer and Thee Oh Sees
will ensure that the indie kids leave smiling too.
