Django Django sideshows
Thu 18th Oct, 2012 in Local News
Following their visit to Australia for Splendour in the Grass, Django Django return in January to play at Falls, Southbound, Field Day headline shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
Since their Splendour tour Django Django’s self-titled debut album has been nominated for the twenty-first Mercury Music Prize and was quickly installed as one of the favourites to win the award along with Richard Hawley, Plan B and “the new Radiohead” Alt-J. The Mercury is well represented in Australia this summer with tours already announced for other nominees Richard Hawley (headline tour), Michael Kiwanuka (Bluesfest), Jessie Ware and Alt-J (Laneway).
FL’s review of the album praised the band for delivering on the hype with “a cohesive set of experimental music that is colourful, hot and spicy. An extravagant affair of light and ambient energy, it is a trippy experience and one you could imagine providing the perfect soundtrack for dancing around in the desert or admiring the strange motifs in the deep haze of a mind-blowing dream.”
Django Django sideshows:
Thursday, January 10 – The Zoo, Brisbane
Friday, January 11 – The Metro, Sydney
Saturday, January 12 – The Hi-Fi, Melbourne
Tickets are on sale at 9am Thursday, October 25
