Nice Station Zebra

Jack White
Kings Theatre
November 17

yep, that’s me, balcony center, rocking my Nats hat and Popeyes tee and rocking the fcuk out!!!

and yep, I was thoroughly thoroughly rocked.  It’s about time Jack!  You dropped a new hot album (‘Over and Over and Over‘ forever please, like the union!) and toured it, but only came to NY for a festival and I’m too old for that festival sh!t, and also I want a Jack show indoors!  EAT IT OUTDOORS!!  But you came back!  Indoors!  Wish I went to both of yer Kings Theatre shows, and wish I went to every show there ever (movie palace + music = MOVED ME PALACE!!), but this was still one night to truly remember (like the Titanic, cept if it never sank and triumphed at rocking so hard that it melted the faces of Nazis) 

Jack – you are our last hope.  Rock flows through you and out of you and into us.  No one your age and of our generation is doing what your are doing.  Keep doing it.  Steady as it goes, or unsteady.  Keep rocking the good rock

Bless your soul, and crazy hair, and crazy no-cellphone policy which wasn’t so awful after all (and kinda liberating!) 

Setlist – Over and Over and Over / Everything You’ve Ever Learned / Black Math / Corporation / Hotel Yorba / Love Interruption / Hello Operator / Why Walk a Dog? / High Ball Stepper / That Black Bat Licorice / What’s Done Is Done / We’re Going to Be Friends / Missing Pieces / The Hardest Button to Button / Carolina Drama

A Quest Called Vibes

Jack White
Madison Square Garden
January 30th

jack white q tip msg

Last time we saw Jack White ROCK out MSG, it was 2007, and the girl with the bouncy boobs was bouncing her boobs behind him, AND IT KICKED THE FCUKING BALL AND THE BISCUITLISTICS!!!!!!!!  They were two kids, playing to 18k people, and they somehow were able to own a building that’s built for giant acts.  Sure, at the time, they were a big act, but 6 years prior, they were playing the tiny Bowery Ballroom, a place better suited for their raw sound.  But Jack White’s sound now and forever knows no bounds.  ‘Seven Nation Army’ has become a sports stadium rally call, and now, Jack White can fill any sized venue to match those calls

Meg White is still sorely missed, but Jack, 7ish years later, has really done an amazing job to fill her (boobie) void.  Sure, having a full band helps, and at times, his band adds TOO much sound to Jack’s music, but they follow his lead, and we’d follow him anywhere he goes, cause it’s always steady as he goes.  His latest MSG set perfectly blended Stripes tunes with the stronger selections of his solo work + enough of the other side-project ditties (juss like his Roseland show of 3 years ago), but the larger venue made everything seem even larger, more vital.  Having Q-Tip come out to help didn’t hurt neither.  In fact, it cleaned and opened our ears even mo!  [editor’s note – we haven’t used a Q-Tip since 2009]

Setlist

Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground / High Ball Stepper /Lazaretto / Hotel Yorba / Temporary Ground / Cannon / Broken Boy Soldier / Cannon / Love Interruption / We’re Going to Be Friends / Three Women / Black Math (intro only to) Top Yourself / Ball and Biscuit

Encore That Black Bat Licorice (with Q-Tip) / Excursions (with Q-Tip) / Sixteen Saltines / Astro / Steady, As She Goes / Would You Fight for My Love? / Just One Drink / Blunderbuss / Seven Nation Army
