Back in 2012, when he was taking a break from recording proper albums, Beck released Song Reader, an “album” made up of nothing but sheet music. And after refusing to play the songs in public for a long time, he staged a couple of big Song Reader concerts in London and L.A. Many of the… More »

Here’s A Jack White Performance One Milwaukee Fan Will Never Forget

When Jack White isn’t busy looking grumpy at baseball games, he also sometimes plays music. A few nights ago at his show in Milwaukee (where he also sang Lorde’s “Royals”), he brought a fan onstage during his encore performance of “Seven Nation Army” and she got to jam with the band for a bit while… More »

Watch Jack White Cover Lorde’s “Royals” In Milwaukee

Jack White has been incorporating a lot of covers into his set recently — just this weekend, he did a quick shoutout to Jay Z’s “99 Problems” and last month he covered Kanye, Beck, and the Stooges all in one show. The latest to get the cover treatment is Lorde’s “Royals,” which seems to be… More »

Watch Jack White Cover Jay Z’s “99 Problems” & Dick Dale’s “Misirlou”

Jack White has been getting pretty loose and freeform with his setlists recently, and he’s been trigger-happy with the covers. At one recent Dublin show, for instance, he covered Beck, the Stooges, and Kanye West. And during his headlining set at Louisville, Kentucky’s Forecastle Festival this past weekend, he tried out Jay Z’s “99 Problems,”… More »

Jack White’s Secret London Show Involved Interactive Theater, Creepy Medical Tests, And A Fake Disease Outbreak

Working within the theme implied by the title of his new album Lazaretto (which is a term for leper colonies), Jack White played an elaborate secret show in London last night that sounds similar to a performance of Sleep No More — oh wait, that’s because White actually got the theater company behind Sleep NoMore »

Metallica Respond To Glastonbury Critics With Fox Hunt Parody, Jack White Plays “Enter Sandman”

Metallica came under some fire before their headlining performance at Glastonbury after some festival fans tried to ban the band from appearing because of James Hetfield’s views on big game hunting.

The Kills opened for Jack White in Dublin last night ahead of White’s stop at Glastonbury, which of course led to several collaborations between White and Kills singer Alison Mosshart, his Dead Weather bandmate.

Download Jack White’s Full Bonnaroo ’14 Set

Jack White played Bonnaroo last weekend, and although his set didn’t crack our list of the top 10 performances, all historical evidence suggests it rocked sufficiently hard while providing healthy does of unbridled swagger, old-timey sensibility, and classic material from White’s storied catalog.

Jack White’s Lazaretto Breaks First-Week Vinyl Sales Record

Watch Jack White Talk “Seven Nation Army” And Cell Phones, Perform Lazaretto Songs On Conan

I’ve been lucky enough to see Jack White and Conan O’Brien in the same room together (I was basically an extra in this video), and the dynamic between those two is an awesome thing to witness. They really are friends, but there’s a big brother/little brother thing going on, too, where White is antsy and… More »

Watch Last Night’s Jack White Concert In Los Angeles

Yesterday, Jack White released his spitting, screaming new solo album Lazaretto — an LP that plays like a swaggering nervous breakdown, if that even makes any sense. And he celebrated its release by playing a show at the historic Fonda Theater in Hollywood, with NPR’s cameras recording it. (It’s not exactly a surprise that White… More »

Watch Jack White’s Performance And Interview On The Tonight Show

Back when Conan O’Brien was hosing Late Night, Jack White showed up as often as he possibly could; the White Stripes, as it happens, were Conan’s final Late Night musical guests.

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

The real best music video of the week is this: the debut effort from Tyler Breeze, bad-guy male model character in WWE’s developmental system, a sort of excessively narcissistic take on pre-personal journey Derek Zoolander. I didn’t put it on this week’s list because it’s not, strictly speaking, a good music video. But if you… More »

Jack White – “Lazaretto” Video

Jack White’s “Lazaretto” is a beast, and its video features one. Specifically, there’s a raging bull involved in the black-and-white clip by Jonas & François, which also features a lot of glass breaking thanks to the sheer power of such good old-fashioned American artifacts as bullets, baseballs, and analog sound. Additionally, White wears a terrible… More »

Premature Evaluation: Jack White Lazaretto

Jack White seems to be in a weird life-place right now. As someone who regularly writes news stories about White, writing news stories about White isn’t much fun.
