If you find yourself in Chicago on June 30, then your time should be spent at Schubas checking out White Denim. The Austin, TX quartet's sound of a well distributed mix of garage, southern rock, psychedelia and prog have been impressing audiences in corner of the U.S. and their recent full-length, D, has received more than favorable mentions from various music outlets. Rolling Stone (yes, that Rolling Stone) awarded the album four stars and was recently listed as an editor's pick while online music bible, All Music Guide labeled it as a four and a half star "masterpiece."
With (or despite depending on your views) a hybrid sound uniquely signature to the band and a looseness commonly found in jam bands, the band is one of the tightest sounding groups around, in the studio and on stage. Posted below are the videos for "Drug" and "Street Joy" (both from D) as well as a link to purchase tickets to the performance at Schubas. By all means, if you can come out, definitely come out. It is a great band performing at a great local venue. The tickets are $12 with Mazes and The Static Jacks opening.
