Austin-based rock-fusion quartet White Denim will head to New Orleans, LA on Sunday, October 10th for a late-night performance at The Maison on Frenchmen Street. The New Orleans White Denim show, which corresponds with the first weekend of Jazz Fest, will also feature special guest Karina Rykman [get your tickets here].
The Austin, TX band has risen steadily throughout its 15-year existence, graduating from the local Austin scene to national tours and high-profile appearances around the country. Through eight studio albums, White Denim—comprised of guitarist/vocalist James Petralli, bassist Steve Terebecki, keyboardist Michael Hunter, and drummer Gregory Clifford—has established a niche all its own in the modern rock world.
White Denim carefully and continuously studies the greatest records ever made, then turns around and writes songs “just dumb enough to drink, dance, and fight to.” By the time the songs make it to the live stage, they are already party-ready anthems primed to get crowds across the land rocking and rolling with abandon.
Last year, White Denim released its eighth studio LP, World As A Waiting Room, a 2020 concept quarantine album written and recorded in just 30 days during lockdown. Earlier this month, the band released “Crystal Bullets”, the first half of a new “double single” which aims to kickstart the band’s return to touring in 2021. Watch the new video for “Crystal Bullets” by White Denim below.

Also on hand at The Maison in New Orleans on Sunday, October 10th will be Karina Rykman, the charismatic bassist who continues to make a name for herself in the jam scene and beyond with each passing single release. While some fans may know the native New Yorker as the bassist for Marco Benevento, her solo outfit is also beginning to break out of the Northeast and head out on tour, gaining new fans by the day.
The Sunday, October 10th performance by White Denim continues the rollout of Live For Live Music‘s 2021 Fest By Nite series. Other announced events include Keller Williams Grateful Grass (10/10 at The Howlin’ Wolf), Andy Frasco & The U.N. with Karina Rykman (10/14 at House of Blues New Orleans), and an all-star tribute to the music of Steely Dan featuring members of Turkuaz, The Motet, Ghost-Note, The Nth Power, and more (10/14 at The Howlin’ Wolf). Stay tuned for more announcements in the coming weeks.
