On Thursday night (Aug. 23), Austin rock band White Denim paid a visit to the set Conan for a fiery performance "It Might Dark" from their album Performance. Clad in all denim (go figure), frontman James Petralli tried to balance his baseball hat on his towering head curls as he lead the band through the driving performance that layered boogie blues and guitar rock that mashed-up such classic influences as Canned Heat and the Allman Brothers Band with the modern chug the Black Keys.
The song took listeners on a journey despair as the lyrics touch on issues fame and finding meaning in a world where "nothing appears to be true." After revving up to a feverish guitar pitch, the band came back together to end on a giant, ominous note, leaving exhausted listeners in a state unresolved suspense.
