The White Shadow

The White Stripes
Madison Square Garden
July 24th

There’s nuttin quite like waking up with Folger’s in your cup the day after a seeing a phenom show, head pounding, ears ringing, and mouth and ass burping and farting the rankest of ranks. While that last duo can be thanked in part to the robert downing jring of a sack of White Castles, the other were the direct result of the major rawkin that Meg and her ‘lil brother’ Jack put on at MSG last nite. Hell, tis be the second greatest show I’ve seen by a duo there mt EVERest and mt suribachi! The first? Simon & Garfunkel’s we need sum sick cash reunion back in the ’03 (pre-Thighs Wide era), which also happens to be the greatestistest show I’ve ever seen. While I haven’t seen many other duos at the Garden, it’s still a feat when two albino-skinned Detroiters can bring an arena of 20,000 to its feet from the get-go to the get the hell outta the building thyme. And while mos bands who play ‘the world’s most famous arena’ fill our eyeballs up with endless Zoo-TV imagery, the ‘sibling’ Whites kept the focus on them, with no gimmicketry at all… unless you count the giant silhouettes bein cast behind them of Meg’s boobs bouncing (Hmmmmm, shadow boobs!). Although I wish they played for 3 hours, I’m happy they were able to squeeze in what they did in 2. The new material sounded mos thumcredible, but I muss say, my heart almost decided to stop after Jack picked up the mandolin and played ‘Little Ghost’ instead of ‘Prickly Thorn, But Sweetly Worn’. Damn, damn. Guess I’ll have to see em again!
