Surprisingly my computer is still pretty much KO’d, but I think it should be up and running soon.
I caught the White Stripes last Monday at the Tweeter Center. I’m pretty pissed because I bought tickets the day they went on sale and our seats were three rows from the back. Maybe it’s because I bought 8 tickets, but that still seems pretty unlikely considering the show wasn’t even sold out. Also, the sound was terrible. I could hear the music fairly well, but Jack White’s voice sounded a million miles away. Overall I was pretty disappointed with show, especially considering all the BS we had to go through to get there.
No one seemed to like Whirlwind Heat who opened for the Stripes, but I think they had potential to be good in a smaller venue. Their songs don’t have names. Instead, they give each one a color, which I think is kind of cool. They’re made up of a drummer, a bass player, and a screaming vocal guy with a moog.
See you tonight.
