“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…
