White Denim and the Golden Boys at
Antone’s. Few notions get more play in rock critic circles than the idea of ‘unclassifiable’ music, but White Denim is the real McCoy when it comes to genre-straddling. ‘Garage rock’ was a useful descriptor for about three weeks in 2007, but whether on debut LP ‘Exposion’ or last year’s ‘Fits,’ the Austin rock trio has dabbled in free jazz, punk rock, psychedelia and wistful country-rock, without ever defying its fundamental White Denim-ness. Red River stalwarts the Golden Boys make for an ideal opener as Antone’s 35th anniversary marches on. With My Education. 9 p.m. $10. 213 W. Fifth St. www.antones.net. — Patrick Caldwell
