Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. at the Croc

One of our favorite stories of bands being named after celebrities involves Crispin Glover apparently being less than pleased that a band was using his name, until said band won him over with a free t-shirt.

While the band Onward Crispin Glover may no longer be around, tonight’s featured act certainly treads on murky waters by taking on the even more absurd name of Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. No word yet on whether merch has been exchanged to soothe any disputes de nom.

Though the band has one of the more cringe-inducing names we’ve seen in our time, there sound is anything but objectionable. With a style that brings in some of the more mellow elements of Nada Surf with the digital savvy of (awful name brethern) STRFKR, DEJJ play some of the best 60’s influenced electro-pop our ears have yet to hear.

Head over to the Croc tonight to hear the band open for ’05 blogosphere faves Tapes ‘n Tapes.

3/8 at The Crocodile: Tapes ‘n Tapes :: Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. :: 8 PM :: $15
