Now the band will get a chance to perform in front of its hometown fans when it headlines the Everett Fishermans Village Music Festival along with Gardens and Villa, La Luz, Rose Windows  and others.

The festival takes place May 16-17 on the downtown Everett waterfront. Tickets are $55 and are good for admission to both days.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. turned in a satisfying set of electropop tunes at Neumos Wednesday night.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. turned in a satisfying set of electropop tunes at Neumos Wednesday night.

With fuzzed-out bombast, Detroit electropop outfit Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. cruised through a tight set at Neumos Wednesday night.

Don’t let their unfortunate name scare you off.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., a quirky electronic indie pop duo from Detroit, makes music good enough to forgive a dubious choice or two. They’re at Neumos tonight with Oxford electro-popster Chad Valley, who peddles in danceable, syrupy synth hooks.

Chad Valley makes music that will get people moving, but those with a keen ear should appreciate Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. (from here on known as DEJJ to save us all some time) for its deeper bag of tricks.
