Django Django @ Schubas on 9.20.2012
Django Django

Django Django not only kicked off their first-ever North American tour on Thursday night (9/20) at Schubas, but that show also served as their Chicago debut. I arrived at the venue as they were loading copious amounts of gear on stage (note: it was ALL put to use), and beginning to check levels. All in attendance, including the band, seemed to be super excited. A gentleman near me remarked, "Whenever a band plays Schubas you know they're going to be huge, these guys are going to do big things." Will those "big things" include a Mercury Prize title? We'll see shortly. The group got situated and began their set with the great "Hail Bop." Between that track's Nintendo video game-like dance beat and its skronky guitar, people seemed to not know how to handle themselves, so they just danced. That, in a nutshell, is part of what makes Django Django so great. The group went on to perform all of their excellent self-titled debut, minus the tracks "Introduction" and "Zumm Zumm."

If you missed them last night, they play Schubas again TONIGHT (Friday, September 21), and tickets are still available. More pictures from their Chicago debut continue below...
