White Denim Austin's White Denim has a style that is different album to album, song to song and even within a song. They incorporate everything from garage rock to acid blues, from pop to post-punk, and still maintain a distinct sound. The band formed in 2005 when the four founding members played a show together. Joshua Block, James Petralli and Lucas Anderson of Parque Touch and Steve Terebecki of Peach Train began to play as Parque Touch, but when Anderson moved to Russia the following year, the resulting trio changed their name to White Denim and jumped into the Austin circuit. They have released five albums in the last four years and each has exceeded the expectations set by the previous album. Today, White Denim's member count is back up to four, with the addition of Austin Jenkins, a second guitarist. They released a new album this past summer called "D" and are currently touring the country on a tour called "For D." They'll be playing from their newest album here at XPN's Free At Noon at World Cafe Live for free on Friday, November 11 at noon. Come on down. Just RSVP now.
