Video: Matthew E. White in Duke Gardens

Posted by on Wed, Jul 31, 2013 at 2:57 PM

Tonight, Hiss Golden Messenger plays the final show of Duke Performances' Music in the Garden series, though the show has been moved indoors to Motorco Music Hall due to the threat of rain.

Last week, however, Richmond native Matthew E. White took his six-piece band to the Duke Gardens to put on a hypnotic 90-minute rock ’n' roll show. White, who played an acclaimed performance at last year's Hopscotch, received much love from the crowd when he commented that the Triangle amounted to something of a second home for him and his music. The performance reflected that: From shouting out Megafaun's Phil Cook for his help with arrangements on Big Inner to his love for Duke alumni Bobby Hurley, White provided a lot of evidence for his statement.

In Durham, the group seemed a little less tied to the formal arrangements of Big Inner, able to spread out and jam a bit more. As the evening ended, White stood by the exit and thanked the crowd for coming as they slowly filed out into the cool Durham summer evening.

Below are a few clips from last Wednesday's performance. See you tonight.

"Steady Pace"
