Hey guys just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Josh I'm new to the forum an am a big fan of The White Stripes as of last December. Since then I've also got really into The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather, Son House, Jack White's solo career and more Stripes related stuff. I got to see Jack White live here in Vancouver in August 2014 and loved it! Looking forward to talking with other fans.

Welcome, Josh.  I attended the same show you did, and I live in Maple Ridge, BC.

Do you mean the White Stripes' album titles above our avatars?  That's just based on the number of posts a member has made.  I can't remember if the first threshhold (which would move you from Icky Thump to GBMS) is 100 or 500 posts.

I enjoyed myself a great deal, but was annoyed that the stupid Deer Lake Park curfew (10pm) didn't allow the show to go on until 10pm (because they wanted to clear the field by around that time, I imagine).  We got screwed out of three or four songs during the encore...thus, no Lazaretto, etc.

I agree. A later curfew would've been much better but I really enjoyed watching Jack play from the sunset into the night. And with the member titles, is it as you gain more points your title becomes an earlier album?

Yes, it moves to an earlier album when you reach a set number of posts.  Better get posting if you don't want to be stuck on Icky Thump forever! :lol:

 

I think Kali's nearly reached Goober And The Peas' self-titled debut. ;)

My goal is to reach the level when Jack played Shave and a Haircut on bongos back when he was a wee lad in Monetessori School.

Haha I'll do my best, although I do love Icky Thump! Hopefully one day there'll be an album to create another level before Icky Thump.
