Django Django Setlist
While the band hadn't toured or promoted anything since 2012, they recently announced signing to ANTI- Records and will be releasing a new album in 2015, so they were excited to preview some new tracks like "Rosaline", which singer Tom asked if there were anyone named that in the audience. "There's been many imposters, but we have not found the real Rosaline. She's out there, I'm sure."
They ended their 40-min set with "The Palace Garden 4am", with a heartfelt line "take me to the river, let me show you."
Since we last saw them, they've released Born Under Saturn in May 2015 and added a much needed new songs into their existing set from 2013.... resulting in over 45 minutes of upbeat, dance-y music.
Just when you didn't think they could get anymore funky, Neff introduced "Lucas on saxophone!" Lucas added this weird organic sound to "First Light".
For "Love's Dart" and "Slow West", Neff switched from guitars to acoustic, admitting that the former song was their "slowest song." While that served as a nice break midway into their set, the fans seemed more interested in the upbeat songs, like "Firewater" that followed.
Biggest hit of the night was for "Default", and before you knew it, they were closing their set with "WOR". Near the end, Neff announced that they had a few days to kill in Minneapolis and would "hit the bars tonight" and asked us for some suggestions on where to go. They seem very approachable... and I wouldn't be surprise to learn later that they would hang out with their fans at a local bar.
Of course, they came back on for the double song encore, "4000 Years" and "Silver Rays". The former also featured the sax from Lucas.
