ICE CREAM AS DARK AS YOUR SOUL

At last, our prayers have been answered.

The frikkin' genius Little Damage Ice Cream Shop in Los Angeles, California have concocted a badass black-as-your-cold-dead-heart ice cream in a big ol' f*** you to all the unicorn themed cute food stuffs doing the rounds.

Their almond-charcoal (what?) flavour ice cream is all over Instagram atm. You can even request a black cone to match... 

 

Want to ease into it? You can add other flavours or sprinkles to remind you it ain't all doom and gloom ;) 

Now, let's find out how we get it shipped over to Notts...

DOT TO DOT FEST 2ND ANNOUNCEMENT!

The UK’s premier festival for unearthing the best new talent, Dot To Dot Festival, returns to Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham from the 26th-28th May for its 12th edition. After smashing record attendance, and marking a sell-out Manchester event in 2016, more of the same is expected for 2017, with a huge lineup of established performers and emerging artists from around the world. Dot To Dot, are delighted to reveal the second wave of artists to play this year’s festival, with more bands still to follow:

Hotly tipped four-piece THE BIG MOON open the list of new additions. Bold, articulate, and with an insatiable ear for melody, they are perfectly poised and ready for their Dot To Dot debut. With their highly anticipated debut album, ‘Love In The 4th Dimension’, scheduled for release at the start of April through Fiction Records, we’re sure you’ll be hearing plenty about these girls over the next few months. Manchester’s own THE SLOW READERS CLUB are also set for their first Dot To Dot appearance. Currently halfway through a UK tour, with sell out shows in London and Nottingham, we can’t wait to see a series of imposing live sets at Dot To Dot by this much acclaimed band. They’ll be joined by Stockholm’s JOSEFIN ÖHRN + THE LIBERATION, whose brand of radiant psychedelia stands effortlessly apart from the increasingly staid, and often paradoxically predictable, modern take on the genre.

The second wave announcement also includes: ANNA STRAKER, ARTIFICIAL PLEASURE, ATLAS WYND, AVANTE BLACK, C. MACLEOD, CALLUM BEATTIE, CONFIDENCE MAN, ELLIE ROSE, EYRE LLEW, GOTHIC TROPIC, HANNAH GEORGAS, HOLIDAY OSCAR, HUSKY LOOPS, INDIGO LO, ISLAND, JACK LADDER, JAKL, JESSE TERRY, JORDAN ALLEN, KUDU BLUE, LITTLE CUB, LITTLE HOURS, MIYA FOLICK, MYSTIC BRAVES, PIXX, SONDRE LERCHE, SORRY and TO KILL A KING. They’ll be joining SUNDARA KARMA, AMBER RUN, THE GROWLERS, LOUIS BERRY, HONEYBLOOD, PINEGROVE, CHERRY GLAZERR, TOM GRENNAN, PICTURE THIS and lots more on this year’s Dot To Dot line-up.

Previous Dot to Dot line-ups have seen performances from The xx, Ed Sheeran, Mumford and Sons, The 1975, Frank Turner, Caribou, Wolf Alice, Jake Bugg, SBTKRT, Florence + The Machine, Peace, Courtney Barnett and many, many more. With the emphasis on showcasing the hottest new talent on the planet, there will be lots more exciting additions to be announced for Dot To Dot’s 2017 line-up.
