D-Day: Devotchka, Django Django and the Dropkick Murphys

Django Django

It's an alliterative Friday in Philadelphia.

The single D and double D action pop music action begins with hard to pigeonhole Brit pop band Django Django, who play a Free at Noon at the World Cafe Live today and then move on to headline Union Transfer tonight. Steve Klinge's interview with the Mercury Prize nominated quartet's singer Vinnie Neff is in Friday Inquirer Wkend section and here.

In Chinatown, Denver gypsy music foursome Devotchka play the Trocadero, debuting new material accompanied by a strong quartet. My Wkend preview is here.

Meanwhile, Boston Celtic punkers Dropkick Murphys play a two-night stand at the Electric Factory, starting tonight. March is the month for Irish music, and Nicole Pensiero includes the Murphys in an Emerald Isle-connected music roundup, also in the Inky Wkend section and here.

Django Django, Devotchka and Dropkick Murphys videos are below.
