Jack White

Wanda Jackson, who will be flanked by the Third Man House Band featuring Jack White, will play sold out shows in Brooklyn and LA next week. If you didn't get your ticket for Ms Jackson, then you're in luck. "The Queen of Rock" will return to NYC one month later to play Bowery Ballroom on February 24, but note: the Third Man House Band is not billed as her band on the the Manhattan show. Tickets go on sale at noon.

We also have a pair of tickets to giveaway to the sold out Brooklyn show that Jack White is playing. Details below.

Wanda Jackson also has a pair of TV appearances lined up in the coming weeks; look for her on David Letterman on January 20th and Conan on January 25th. Jack White and the Third Man House Band will be playing at both of those.

Wanda is prepping to release her new Jack-White-produced-LP The Party Ain't Over via Third Man/Nonesuch Records on January 25th. The LP features Mr. White as well as his wife (Karen Elson), in addition to bandmates Jack Lawrence (The Dead Weather/Raconteurs, also The Greenhornes) & Patrick Keeler (Raconteurs also The Greeenhornes), and other greats like Carl Broemel (My Morning Jacket). The LP features eleven covers from the past century, and you can check out the tracklisting below.

The Greenhornes are going on tour soon too. They play The Bell House on April 8th (tickets) and Maxwell's on April 9th (tickets).

The above picture is taken from a video where "label head Jack White, takes an on-camera minute to explain some of its latest creations. From the The Greeting Card Gatefold™ limited edition release of upcoming Wanda Jackson LP "The Party Aint Over" to the The Third Man Monkey Band™ - only at the store front in Nashville, TN.

My Morning Jacket

My Morning Jacket ...ran through its most recent studio album, Evil Urges, in its entirety and later returned for a nine-song encore....[mixing] unreleased original songs with a range of covers that included: The Velvet Underground's "Oh! Sweet Nuthin," Sly Stone's "Hot Fun In The Summertime, Al Johnson's "Carnival Time" and Curtis Mayfield's "Move On Up."...

After leaving the stage for a second time, My Morning Jacket returned to deliver a high energy take on the It Still Moves single "One Big Holiday." It was the only song My Morning Jacket repeated throughout its 100-song marathon. -[JamBands.com]

It was also the only night that got a 2nd encore. And the only night I made it up there after spending the rest of CMJ week basically working (and seeing BV shows). It was the perfect ending to the MMJ marathon, and to my CMJ week (though it wasn't the actual ending of my week, because right afterwards I shot down to Bowery Ballroom to catch some of Neon Indian and all of Surfer Blood who went on 1am and had a marathon week of their own).

Besides the Evil Urges material, the covers, and powerful show closer "One Big Holiday", the band also ran through material due on a forthcoming LP ("Circuital" and "Friends Again"), and a track from Carl Broemel's solo record ("Carried Away").

Carl played his own headlining show at Joe's Pub in the middle of the Terminal 5 run. Jim James played the T Bone Burnett show at Beacon Theatre that same night. Members of Diamond Doves/Elvis Perkins' band once again joined MMJ on stage on horns Saturday night, like they did the night Elvis opened.

WE HAVE A POST FOR EVERY NIGHT AT TERMINAL 5: ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR

More pictures from NIGHT FIVE, opener Everest included, a bunch of videos, and the full setlist below...

The Secret Sisters perform with Elvis Costello, T Bone Burnett and Jakob Dylan
The Secret Sisters

Jack White. T-Bone Burnett. Carl Broemmel of My Morning Jacket. These three stellar names all had their hand in recent/upcoming releases from The Secret Sisters, a pair of harmonizing not-secret Alabama sisters that dabble in classic-country inspired rock. The duo released their debut 45 on Third Man Records in August featuring a ripping cover of Johnny Cash's "Big River" (Jack White fan's take note, it rules), and are prepping their T-Bone Burnett-produced self-titled debut (featuring slide guitar from Carl Broemmel) for release on 10/12. Stream a few songs at their site, and more at their myspace. In preparation, the duo will play a solo show at Joe's Pub TONIGHT (9/16), tickets are still available.

It's the same place that Carl Broemel will bless on 10/20 on his night off from Terminal Five shows with My Morning Jacket.

Secret Sisters are also on board to play the Academy of Country Music Honors on 9/20 in Nashville, as well as NYC again one month later (10/20) as part of The Speaking Clock Revue, T-Bone Burnett's benefit show at Beacon Theater (with Jim James of MMJ). Tickets go on AMEX presale on Monday (9/20) and go on sale to the general public on 9/27 at noon.

Carl of My Morning Jacket at Outside Lands
My Morning Jacket

Jim James of My Morning Jacket said it himself during his band's opening set. We were all about to have a great time, he assured us, listening to the Heartbreakers. Not Tom Petty, or "Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers," as they were always billed in their '80s MTV videos. Just the Heartbreakers.

James may not have been trying to make a point, but a point was made nevertheless. Petty's combo has always been a collaborative project: a band in the truest sense, and often one of the most engaging, if not always the most creative, on the Billboard charts.

...My Morning Jacket continue to split the difference between polite college rock and proggy, Phish-like jam band lunacy. That makes them better than any college rock band, but not as fun as Phish. Jim James favors a rotating setlist, but at Izod Center, My Morning Jacket played most of their best-known material, including "I'm Amazed," the reggae-funk "Off The Record," and the guitar-heavy "One Big Holiday." The popular Louisville quintet isn't desperate for new fans, but they certainly made some last night.
-[NJ.com review from the Izod Center]

My Morning Jacket completed their run of dates with, ahem, The Heartbreakers, and after a few dates this weekend, will prep for their five night stay at Terminal Five. Each night will see them revisiting old LPs with The Tennessee Fire being played in full on Oct 18th, At Dawn on 19th, It Still Moves on 21st, Z on 22nd, and Evil Urges on 23rd (tickets for 10/18 and 10/19 are still available). Those dates leave My Morning Jacket without a show on October 20th, but it won't be a day for relaxation.

My Morning Jacket's Carl Broemel will play a solo show that night at Joe's Pub, showcasing material from his upcoming LP All Birds Say. Tickets are on sale. Order All Birds Say in multiple digital/vinyl/CD/T-Shirt configurations, and check out "Heaven Knows" available for download above.

My Morning Jacket (with Carl Broemel) also played the Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco on Saturday August 14th. Pics from that show adorn this post. More of them setlists, all dates, and some video recorded in a recent session with Carl Broemel below...
