Jack White @ SXSW 2012 (photo by manotaur)
Jack White

"Exactly twelve hours later, my ears are still screaming, my head still pounding from Jack White's incinerating double-band set at the Third Man Records showcase at SXSW on Friday night. Running the track gamut through his various bands and projects after fantastic opening sets from White Rabbits, Reggie Watts, John Reilly and Karen Elson, White unleashed a nearly two-dozen song show at the Stage on Sixth - packed with new songs and old favorites - which concretely affirmed that the demise of The White Stripes is under no circumstance a signaled retreat from the days of Jack's blazing blues-rock lashings and furious guitar-solo spaz-outs." [antiquiet]
Check out most of the setlist from Jack White's SXSW show, White Stripes songs included, below.

Like on SNL, he played first with a female band, and then with an all male one. As antiquiet points out, Bill Murray was among those rocking out in the audience. Many people were also listening from the street as you can see in the video below.

And... Jack White has announced a tour that will bring him to Roseland Ballroom in NYC for two shows in May...

On Wednesday, March 21st a limited amount of tickets for all dates will be available for pre-sale to Vault members starting at 9 am local time and if stock permits, pre-sale tickets for European dates only will then be available to the general public starting at 1 pm local time here. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, March 23rd at 9 am local time in Europe and 10 am PT/12 pm CT/1 pm ET for the US dates.
All dates are listed below...

3:34,

Shut up loser. Roseland will be fun, and be thankful it's not at Terminal 5.

jeez, shouldnt you be barred from playing sxsw once you reach a certain level of noteriety?

Posted by Darren | March 19, 2012 3:38 PM

@338 i 100% agree. people like jay-z and jack white taking the shine away from those who actually need it.

Jack White is hard to both love, and hard to hate.
Let's not disagree that some of those white stripe songs are amazing, but indeed he comes across as very inauthentic to his "bluesy roots" thing. I bet Jack White vomits after a couple rounds of bourbon and that's sort of a problem. He isn't dangerous like his blues counterparts are.

Posted by Anonymous | March 19, 2012 3:43 PM

Hi 3:43. I don't have that problem. It's not hard to hate. Just say "Fuck Jack White." It's actually pretty easy.

Only sheep listen to this overrated junk. Fools for radiohead fall for this shit. Idiots

I agree.

Jack White looks like a fat, pale mess. Can almost pass for a dirty Puerto Rican.

Posted by Anonymous | March 19, 2012 5:46 PM

I wanna see Meg do more than a solo tour. meaning, i want to drench her in cum and make her gag on it. god, her tits are perfect.

4:56 - Unless he adds more shows, this will be a hot ticket. Just because you and your dorky friends don't like Jack, doesn't mean that others won't buy into this.

Posted by Anonymous | March 19, 2012 6:10 PM

Tickets are $20 for all shows? Gotta say, that's pretty cool.

Posted by Anonymous | March 19, 2012 6:15 PM

US $49.50 Ticket + US $13.00 Fees =
US $62.50

Don't kid yourself there are more than 6400 people who want to see Jack White, or should I say Jack Green.

Jack White = for white people who feel that Sleigh Bells is too edgie

anyone who thinks Sleigh Bells is edgie is a pussy, also Jack White kept rock from dying, I don't even like him that much but you gotta give respect where respect is due.

jack, jack, jack. a true inspiration... between dead weather, raconteurs, the stripes, and solo work.. he does literally more than any other artist I've ever heard. Not only is every song he works on a true masterpiece, but then he takes it a step further with something like a 3RPM record (world's first) or homemade guitar out of scraps! blunderbuss will be yet another amazing addition to my Mr. White collection.
