White Denim is a three piece funk infused rock band from Austin. To put it simply, they are rad! I first caught wind of them at this years SXSW at the Little Radio Day Party at the Red Eye Fly and instantly fell in love with the way they injected funk and soul into their rock, jam band tunes. So I was pretty excited to see them play in L.A. while they were on tour with Tapes ‘n Tapes. Fearing my “love” of white Denim was nothing more than a lust left over from the intoxicated week long musical indulgence that is South By Southwest, I didn’t want to get my hopes up with them. Much to my surprise it wasn’t! They took the stage quietly, did a quick sound check and before I knew it, they had rolled right into their first song. Early on in the set the crowd was won over by the barreling drums, groovin’ bass lines, dirty guitar licks and fist-pumping-hand-clapping vocals. Plain and simple, these boys put on a rock show. A hot, sweaty, dirty rock show. Normally bands like this are always hyped up by the hipsters and their blogs but don’t actually live up to all they are cracked up to be. Believe in the blogs! These guys are the real deal! White Denim is in and won’t be going out of style anytime soon.
