UK imports and 2012 Mercury Prize nominees Django Django performed at Union Transfer in Philadelphia on 3/8 (read show preview here). Minneapolis’ Night Moves started the night off – they’ve got an old school soul meets twang vibe and lead singer John Pelant has a voice like honey. You can listen to Night Moves’ 2012 debut LP Colored Emotions on Spotify.

Django Django had the crowd dancing immediately and kept the energy up throughout their set. The combo of their stage presence, musicianship, and blinding light show made for an incredible performance with showgoers likening it to “dancing in space”. You can listen to Django Django’s retro-futuristic self-titled LP on Spotify. Below is the official music video for “Default” from Django Django.
