The most fun show I went to last year, and I went to plenty of shows, featured White Denim. It was an hour and a half of non stop psychedelic, rolling, rocking, wailing, and carrying on. It was easily the most energized show I attended. I went there not knowing much about the band and left it one of the converted.
The bassist, in particular, was sort of a little guy, playing a gigantic looking Rickenbacker bass with an amazing level of intensity and skill. He was a lot of fun to watch and listen to, and really captured the core energy of the band.
