Jack White’s first solo album ‘Blunderbuss’ has been a one-shot success story: critics are merrily raving about it, while sales figures point to a Number One chart-topper on both sides of the Atlantic. Hard to believe that it’s been over a decade since the White Stripes began to imprint themselves on the collective cultural consciousness (and even harder to believe that ‘Elephant’, their defining album, was released almost nine years ago).
White will be performing a gig tonight at New York’s Webster Hall. If you’re one of the lucky few NYC dwellers who managed to snap up a ticket in time, we hope you enjoy the show. As for the rest of us? Not to worry – the whole shebang is being streamed live from White’s VEVO Channel on YouTube, kicking off at 9pm EST (2am GMT). Why not add to the New York ambiance by getting a few homeless people to hang around outside your apartment? It’ll be like you’re at the scene itself!
The most interesting part of all this is that it’s being directed by great British actor Gary Oldman. Hey, Gary – who do you think should tune in and watch the gig?
Now you’ve been told.
