I don't know what song it's from at the Wireless Festival but I thought I saw her make the same hand signal at the Leeds Academy gig the other week. I couldn't remember which song it was though, so I've gone through strawdogrob's Youtube videos and there it is, during "Cities Burning Down". It's after 1m27s of this video:

I've noticed that too in pictures and videos, but I don't know if it means anything. I think it's just a hand gesture she makes, and the 3 comes from holding a guitar pick in the other hand. It could maybe be an inside joke or something within the band (?)
Indie Style: Last question. On Chasing Lullabies, an unofficial fan forum Howling Bells, I read that someone wondered what the 3 + 5-hand gesture means that Juanita created during live shows. Is it a secret?
Juanita: That I really can not and will never give away, it is very personal.
Well, that's made me happy, and, as Lee says, how ironic that Juanita should discover Chasing Lullabies the day before he attempts to tell her about it!
