Probably time to start looking into a permanent camping spot in the parking lot of the Firebird (2706 Olive Street, 314-535-0353). Today the venue announced, among other things, an April 7 show featuring White Denim. Tickets are $10 and on sale now.
The Austin band is incredibly difficult to define -- it shares some of the psychedelic inclinations of many of its hometown's most well-known bands, but White Denim is weirder, louder and, by the estimation of many, better than nearly any band in Austin or anywhere else, for that matter.
The Firebird's other recent announcements include Peelander-Z, Kevin Seconds with Franz Nicolay (the flamboyant former keyboardist for the Hold Steady) and Union Tree Review's hometown stop with Grandkids, Slothpop and Bear Hive. We'll stop drooling over these announcements when they stop being so salivating.
