The legendary Austin blues venue that Stevie Ray Vaughn helped make famous, Antone’s, is not known for being a hipster hangout. However, Antone’s is a favorite of Austin indie standouts White Denim.They are favorite of Antone’s as well, not only because their bluesy influence is a good fit but also because White Denim always packs the venue. Red River rats, or live music enthusiasts who commonly frequent the Red River live music district a few blocks away, line up in large numbers before doors open. That’s something you just don’t see everyday outside Antone’s.
When White Denim performed on July 16, Red River Noise photographer Mary Rehak was there to capture the action.
