Django Django stormed the Wedgewood rooms to warm applause from a near-full crowd on Wednesday night.

The band, who were supported by the jazz rock Roller Trio, provided a wonderful hour of entertainment with an enthusiastic and energetic performance.

Django Django rarely put a foot wrong throughout the evening and provided a solid evening of entertainment.

Brief technical issues led to effortless entertainment of the crowd through some humorous interaction before resuming with the set.

The new singles First Light and Reflections went down well, keeping the pace through the middle of the set.

The performance was solid, the drumming was tight, while the vocals were woven together effectively with the guitars and synthesisers duelling to mesmerising effect, maintaining an infectious energy throughout the evening.

Encore cries from the crowd were replied to with a performance of Silver Rays.

Django Django rarely put a foot wrong throughout the evening and provided a solid evening of entertainment. Great fun.
