White Denim @ Hotel Vegas on 1/13
"It's hard to tell if other artists respect White Denim as much as White Denim respects other artists, but the band's starting to earn nods from some pretty high company. Hand picked for a session by Jack White, the quartet rode into Nashville and produced April's Live at Third Man, the truest representation of the band's concert experience yet to go to press--D ripped to shreds by the foursome's fusion of psychedelic jazz and power soul. A few months later they'd get the call from Wilco, an invitation to open for them on twelve dates out west.
Which is why we gathered at Hotel Vegas Friday night.
With the tour kickoff slated for Thursday, January 19 at Denver's Fillmore Auditorium, White Denim arranged a tune-up gig for a crowd of 160--two forty-five minute sets arranged specifically for the Wilco dates."
