Jack White Announces Big Nashville, NYC, Ellen Gigs

I've been to a lot of shows at Madison Square Garden, and the best one I ever saw was probably the White Stripes, with Grinderman and the late Porter Wagoner opening, in 2007. Jack White absolutely owned the Garden that night, stomping and preening and flailing his way across a mostly-unadorned stage. I remember seeing… More »

Foo Fighters Sort Of Respond To Jack White Dis, Jack White Sort Of Apologizes

When he was playing Boston's Fenway Park last night, Jack White went into a pretty funny tirade against Rolling Stone, and he also made a quick crack about the Foo Fighters having three guitarists onstage "playing the same parts."

Hear Jack White Clown Rolling Stone, Foo Fighters From The Stage

Last night, Jack White played a show at Boston's Fenway Park, and he opened it up by making fun of the Foo Fighters for having a second guitarist onstage "playing the same parts" to cover up any mistakes.

Jack White – “Would You Fight For My Love?” Video

Jack White has a new haircut, and he made a music video to show it off. It's a relatively bold look, a short-on-top pompadour with some serious muttonchops. It looks good! And it feels like the star of White's new video for "Would You Fight For My Love?," the unfulfillment anthem from his Lazaretto album. More »

Watch Jack White’s Acoustic Take Away Show At A French Chateau

La Blogotheque's "Take Away Shows" video series are a Dogme 95-style thing in which bands perform entirely acoustic in unexpected French locations, with no effects to sweeten the performance. That's exactly the sort of set of restraints that would appeal to an old-school fetishist like Jack White, the subject of the latest installment. In hi… More »

Watch Nurse Hopper’s Creepy Video From Jack White’s Immersive Medical-Themed Concert

Back in July, Jack White had a shitload of fun putting on a secret show in London built like a piece of interactive theater (and done in collaboration with the acting company that does Sleep No More, that interactive-theater thing everyone has been telling me to see since I moved to New York).

Hear Some Of Jack White’s Lazaretto Demos

News recently circulated that Lazaretto, Jack White's new solo album, has sold more vinyl albums in a single year than anything since Pearl Jam's Vitalogy in 1994. That's partly because of how White kept hawking the tricked-out vinyl edition at every opportunity, but it probably helps that the album has some really good songs. And… More »

Osheaga 2014: Lorde, The Replacements, HAIM, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, & More

More than most North American cities, Montreal gets it right when it comes to hosting music festivals. Fortunate enough to have a setting like Parc Jean-Drapeau, located in the heart of the city, a five-minute subway ride from downtown, the Canadian city is able to pull off a music-and-arts festival like Osheaga with relative ease.

Watch Sad Jack White Throw Out The First Pitch At Tonight’s Tigers Game

After a rough night playing Detroit's Fox Theatre yesterday, Jack White threw the ceremonial first pitch in his hometown for the Tigers.

Jack White Annoyed By Apathetic Hometown Crowd At Detroit’s Plush Fox Theatre

Jack White is one of Detroit's favorite sons, presumably, but he wasn't feeling the love from his home crowd when he played the Fox Theatre Monday night.

Stream Beck’s Song Reader Album Feat. Jack White, Jarvis Cocker, Tweedy, Fun., & More
