At Austin City Limits this year, photographer Kristen Blanton had the chance to catch up with a few of Paste‘s favorite acts on the lineup, mingling with the bands backstage and documenting what it’s like to be a touring musician at a big festival.
When it came to Austin’s own White Denim, ACL was the first of many events this fall that have left the band’s name on our lips. From their flurry of memorable sets at CMJ to the release of latest full-length Corsicana Lemonade, the guys have stayed busy.
Check out Blanton’s behind-the-scenes photos with White Denim at ACL in the gallery below. You can also get a taste of the band’s sound by checking out their Daytrotter Session or listening to their full set from Noise Pop 2008 over at Concert Vault
