"I exchanged a few texts with Brendan ("whitestripesman"), he apparently got to spend the entire day holding hands with Jack White! They skipped through the dandelions together and sang sea chanteys all day long. They're probably still out there scaring the juggalos that live in the woods."
hahahahhaha that's about right Tim!

Well ok here we go. I ended up getting a backstage pass for the fest yesterday. I mostly talked to Brendan, Lil Jack, and some of the Black Belles girls most of the day but I did speak some words to Karen, Jack, and Lalo as well. Jack was in a little "hey yeah cool whatever cya" mood so I backed off but it was nice all the same.
Ben Swank was a real nice and funny guy too and we hung out during the Romantics set (my friend Brad Elvis is the drummer for the Romantics, hence how I got the pass). All of the above people sat and watched the entire Black Milk set as well as Black Belles, and some of JEFF the Brotherhood. It got to the point where I would run into Brendan and Jack TOO much back stage so it got a little embarrassing, but me and Brendan laughed it off. Jack just haunted past every time with Lalo very close by. The drummer from the Black Belles and I had a little conversation about Vintage Drums, a love for both of us, that was real cool! Very laid back festival and not that many people there at all but the weather made up for it. I got to stand in the pit in front of the barrier for most of the Raconteurs set and it was so nice to see Jack's family so up close, and all wives of each band member. Anyways, here are some pictures I scrambled to take.

oh! I also got to meet Jim McCarty (Cactus, Detroit Wheels, The Rockets), Mitch Ryder, Jeff Daniels (ha), and a bunch of other guys as well. Brad really hooked me up this time and his playing with the Romantics is quiet the site to see. Me and Swank had our jaws to the floor.

Like Aqua, I'm also currently in the airport, in Philly on the way home to DC. Thank you so much for finding the Top Yourself video, Ak1nney.


Jack's still into the brown eyeshadow. ;)

And wears it better than most women I've seen.

Haha, when Helen and I were in the vip area, I saw you all over the place, too. You've got a cool look B)


The other song that I sooooooo hope someone recorded is Broken Boy Soldier, with Jack's little injun circle dancing. Hot damn, was that fantastic to watch.

Oh my gosh, bless your ever-lovin' heart for finding that. And so many thanks to whoever recorded it.


Interesting. That note at the end of the song was apparently only about 3 seconds long. Last night, it felt like it went on for eternity.
