Edinburgh's Django Django is a fun, oddball band that makes strange and happy synth-driven pop for music geeks. It sounds like space meets surf meets tribal meets robots. I think that's called "art rock," but I'll have to double-check with my artist friends just to be sure about that.

Most of the Django Django attention has happened over there in the U.K., and that buzz was based on the strength of their crazy live shows. On stage, they like to use lots of wacky props (unfortunately, as of this writing, they've never used a huge novelty lemon), they get all trippy with the lights (so bright and colorful!), and they slam together coconut shells (for percussive purposes... duh).

Django Django gets a lot of comparisons to The Beta Band (main Django David Maclean's older bro was in Beta Band, actually) meets the Beach Boys. I never got into The Beta Band, but that's ok, because The Beta Band never got into me. And I'm into Django Django. I don't know why, exactly. But I am.



Django Django plays Schubas Schubas, on Thursday, September 20th, and Friday, September 21st.
