At SXSW Jack White played a two song acoustic set in a parking lot. It was to promote the Third Man Records Rolling Record Store (which is pretty neat). He played stellar performances of Buddy Holly’s “Not Fade Away” and The White Stripes classic, “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground”. He also announced that Seasick Steve (remember him?) signed a 1 album deal with his label. Then Steve himself performed a few tunes. Awesome stuff.

Jack White’s New Band: The Dead Weather

By Will Oliver, March 11th 2009 — with 4 comments

Jack White likes to keep busy. Being in The White Stripes and Raconteurs isn’t enough for the rock star. Now he has joined a new band with Alison Mosshart of The Kills, Jack Lawrence from The Raconteurs, and Dean Fertita who has helped with both Queens of the Stone Age and The Raconteurs. Woah that is pretty cool. Jack is singing but he put his guitar duties on hold. Jack White is on the drums for The Dead Weathers. That is pretty damn cool.

Their debut album “Horehound” is expected to see a release in June. Below I got the bands first single “Hang You From The Heavens” and it’s b-side “Are Friends Electric?” (Gary Numan Cover) for you to hear.

“Hang you Up” is a southern heavy rocker with vocals from both Jack and Alison. The guitars are flying full force. It did remind me a bit of The Raconteurs playing style. The Numan cover is right up there too. God does Jack White do anything that doesn’t kick ass?

cheers to culture bully for the mp3′s

The 2014 Grammy Nominations have been announced. Don’t go rolling your eyes at me. There’s some good stuff to be found in all the clutters of irrelevancy and “mehs.”

The National & Vampire Weekend, have been nominated for Grammys! So have James Blake, Alabama Shakes, Queens Of The Stone Age, Jack White, Neko Case, Tame Impala, and Nine Inch Nails. So there’s that.

Fuzz @ Mercury Lounge (10/12/2013)

Fuzz, the newest and latest outfit of the restless Ty Segall rocked out a sold out Mercury Lounge on Saturday night, one of their two shows in the city over the weekend. Although Ty now sits behind the drum kit with Fuzz it still really felt like the Ty Segall show, especially since his guitarist Charlie Moothart is a part of Fuzz. Read the rest of this entry »

‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ NYC Concert Announced

By Will Oliver, August 20th 2013

Inside Llewyn Davis is a movie about a folk rock musician who tries to make it in New York during the 1960′s. It’s directed by The Coen Brothers, naturally making it one of my most anticipated films of the year.

With its connection to music, it’s only natural that a concert has been announced on September 29 at Town Hall in New York City. Put together by The Coen Brothers and T Bone Burnett, who produced the films soundtrack, it will features live performances by the films stars Oscar Isaac, John Goodman, and Carey Mulligan. Unfortunately, no Justin Timberlake. There will also be appearances and performances by the following musicians: Jack White, Conor Oberst, Joan Baez, Patti Smith, Colin Meloy (The Decemberists), Marcus Mumford, The Avett Brothers, Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops), Lake Street Dive, Milk Carton Kids, Punch Brothers, Secret Sisters, Gillian Welch & Dave Rawlings, and Willie Watson.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 12 p.m. Find out more about the event over at Filmtastic.

Pujol @ Lollapalooza (8/3/2013)

Pujol are a young but fiercely energetic garage rock band from Nashville, Tennessee. Already they’ve worked with the likes of Jack White, and it shows. They put on a tight set that wowed everyone in attendance. I only caught the first part of their set, but I liked what I heard. These kids are definitely ones to pay attention to.

Hit the jump for some more photos of Pujol.

Deap Vally @ Lollapalooza (8/2/2013)

Female duo Deap Vally consists of Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards. They play dirty garage rock that naturally will call reactions to The White Stripes, but they lean more so towards Jack White’s work with The Dead Weather because of Troy’s vocals which are somewhat reminiscent of The Kills’ Alison Mosshart. These girls can shred, hard. I will definitely be catching a full set from these guys the next time they’re in New York.

Check out a photo set from their performance at Lolla below.
