I’ve been to some shows outside of Stubb’s before and even though the sound was kind of weird, it was still a pretty good time. The opening bands showed some promise but I don’t think I gave them too much of a fair shake because I was distracted by college football.

I already pulled a 4-band-er Thursday and was anxious to see if they could last as long. Where Thursday’s bill built up in awesomeness, this rock party was way more imbalanced. Never fear, dear, as White Denim made it more than worthwhile and will last as one of the best small concerts I’ve ever been too. Seriously, it was that good.
