Liverpool Sound City 2012: Django Django: Red Bull live at the Garage, Liverpool

Django Django lighten up an abandoned carpark and Getintothis’ Thomas Jefferson reckons he’s witnessing very definitely the next big thing.

Django Django are one of the most talked about bands of the moment, and certainly of this festival.
Surprisingly, they play in the Red Bull Garage, which by day is an NCP car park, but it turns out by night it is one of the best venues of the entire festival.
It is packed for Django Django, and they entirely live up to the acclaim they hold.
After a disappointing Liverpool debut at the limiting Hold of The Shipping Forecast, they make no mistakes tonight and produce a pulsating, lively, enigmatic set.
Their Beta Band-esque harmonies override everything they do, driven forward by four to the floor drums beats, synth and jagged guitars.
The result is a mixture of clap along hits like Firewater and Silver Rays and the more dance orientated, but no less jubilant Zumm Zumm.
The result is hand in the air, finger jabbing, fist-pumping jubilance.

Default provokes a jubilant and obvious response and it doesn’t stop there.
Their hour long set rapidly disappears, each track providing a more jubilant response from the crowd.
Their enjoyment on stage is clear to see, and they rightly finish off this car park rave with the siren led-MOR.
Django Django are the next big thing, and they deserve it thanks to a set that is chock full of hits from start to finish.
