I asked the music gods for THREE things:
1. The boys
2. Ball & Biscuit
3. Catch Hell Blues

Apparently they were listening to me!!

Very happy camper making her way home.

Killer show, and he looked like he was going for the acoustic at the end--but changed his mind, and no Irene. There goes that theory!

I just LOVE the interplay between Jack and Daru!!

I'm now nursing my cold while everyone swings from the chandeliers somewhere in honor of Avard's birthday.

Catch Hell was still mostly about Jack and the guitar. It's one I never got to hear live, so I was pretty happy to have the opportunity.

I can't really remember the exact set list, but here is a list of songs that were played:

Dead Leaves
Missing Pieces
Sixteen Saltines
Trash Tongue Talker
Black Math
Two Against one
Hypocritical Kiss
I know That You Know
Top Yourself
Buffalo
Hello Operator
Weep Themselves to Sleep
Blunderbuss
Ball and Biscuit


Freedom at 21
Steady As She Goes
Take me with you
Catch Hell
7NA

I appreciated that it was a substantially different set list than Webster. I got to hear a bunch of things I hadn't heard yet. lots of fun. way past my bed time.

I'll third that since "Death Letter" is number one on my all-time wish list. And we all know three is the magic number...

Avard stopped cold mid set. Catch hell birthday blues. Great show. Way to overcrowded. No chandelier swinging for moi. Love those wacky noodleings in between songs that come out of nowhere but end you up face first into the thick of the song. Go jack.

That was possibly the best Jack White related concert I've ever been to. (The only White Stripes concert I ever attended was at Madison Square Garden which wasn't indicative of The White Stripes at their best). The Alabama Shakes were phenomenal. Seriously got my groove on to You Ain't Alone.

Jack's set started out strong but there were too many distractions going on in the midsection during Hypocritical Kiss. Apparently a fight broke out and everyone wanted to get a guy kicked out. Took me out of the concert for a while. But then Black Math came on and sweet Jesus I love that song and the new arrangement was pretty awesome (Hope the Sirius broadcast turns up somewhere). He then followed that with Hello Operator which is where the Buzzards shine, they own that song. Other highlights were of course Ball and Biscuit, Take Me With You When You Go (Jack walked over to Daru's drumset and sort of stepped on one of the sets or something like that, those two have great chemistry). Then Catch Hell Blues came on and all hell broke loose. I lost it. Ikey Owens added his personal touch to the song that I was not particularly fond of but the fiddle player seemed amused. Crowd started clapping during the last verse of You Know That I know and Jack smiled and said "Ok then." No We're Going To Be Friends or Hotel Yorba, I'm not complaining. My one complaint is that we didn't get Goodnight Irene but hopefully we'll get it tomorrow.

Never had the opportunity to see Mr. White live before tonight... Needless to say, this is in my top five all time favorite concerts. :)

How did Catch Hell sound with the band? If hes playing that Death Letter can't be far away. (hopefully)

I really thought it was gonna be Death Letter when he brought out that guitar. I'm not complaining though, Catch Hell Blues DESTROYED. Never been one of my favorite Stripes songs, but fuck does it sounds amazing live!

Amazing show, I've seen all of his bands live and this is up there. Sooo hot and crowded lol, someone behind me actually passed out right before Jack came on. Poor fella :wacko:, Black Math got everyone crazyyyyy. It sounds amazing in that arrangement. I was surprised he played Catch Hell Blues and Steady As She Goes. But, they sounded excellent.

Heyyy!!! And *wow*, that would kill me too. Jeez. So happy for you!

And sooo happy for you too that you made it through your cold and the rain!!

Show sounds amazing. (And good God, what a poster....!)
