Django Django @ MHOW, 3/6/2013
Django Django's popularity has had a slow, steady rise over the last 12 months. Their first U.S. show was almost exactly a year ago at Glasslands (one BV presented) and now they just finished two sold-out nights at Music Hall of Williamsburg (March 6 and 7) on their biggest North American tour yet. While the setlist hasn't changed much (or at all) since March 2012, the live show production values most certainly have. Last year, their biggest visual element was an oversized tambourine. This year, they came armed with an impressive light show using projections cast on Venetian blinds. To quote a friend of mine, "Looks dope."
If you went, what did you think? Anybody go to both? You can check out more photos from Wednesday's night show -- including some of openers Night Moves -- below.
Lord Huron at Mercury Lounge in October (more by Dan Bracaglia)
As the year comes to a close, we're wrapping up these year-end lists from artists and other people in the music world. Today we posted lists by BV radio host Nick Masi, Gardens & Villa, and Brooklyn Bowl talent buyer Adam Geringer-Dunn. Browse our "Best of 2012" tag for many more. Now here's one from Ben Schneider, frontman of LA folk rockers Lord Huron. The list includes a couple veteran folk singers, who most likely influenced Ben's own writing, two very different and very notable experimental music leaders, Lord Huron tourmates Night Moves, and a '70s Afghan pop star.
Check out the full list, and some tour dates, below...
