The Austin,Texas band have carefully and continuously studied the greatest records ever made, but they write songs just dumb enough to drink, dance, and fight to.

Event Details

White Denim at Salvage Station [Asheville, NC]
Support: Abram Shook
Doors: 5pm
18+

In his 1942 essay The Myth of Sisyphus, Camus wrote that “All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning. Great works are often born on a street corner or in a restaurant's revolving door.” 15 years later Richard Wayne Penniman wrote “Wop bop a loo bop a wop bam boom”, an undeniably powerful vocalization that on any given Wednesday in any given situation, civilized or otherwise, is still fully capable of setting somebody’s stuff aflame. Over ten years and seven long players into their career, White Denim are still in the relentless pursuit of a thread - in other words, a wick.

Theirs is a music that aims for the whole body, while equally satisfying the mind. While it has morphed, expanded, and even burst apart, White Denim’s sincere and human drive and ability to spark true rock & roll exhilaration have been unerring constants of the band’s 10-year existence.

“White Denim are one of the best live bands you will ever see if you live to be a million. That’s not excitable hyperbole, merely a bald statement of undeniable fact...” — Time Out

“The last great rock & roll band!” — The Guardian

He finally settled in Austin, TX where he's been an active member of the city's creative community for over 10 years. His music has been praised by Vice, Stereogum, Texas Monthly, Consequence of Sound, NPR’s World Cafe, and many others. In addition to working on his own music, Abram was a touring member of Shearwater, and currently tours with Erika Wennerstrom of Heartless Bastards.

Shook’s latest album The Neon Machine, is a dystopian dance party, inspired by everything from Prince and Bowie to contemporary artists like Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Blood Orange. In contrast to his quietly reflective 2017 album Love At Low Speed, the new album’s mix of beats and slyly humorous lyrics might seem like a 180 at first glance. However, those familiar with Shook’s previous work, know that he's always expl
