Jack White in Austin - 1/24/15 (more by Tim Griffin)
Jack White, who maybe you recognize from your baseball card collection, began his 2015 tour in Austin over the weekend with two sold-out shows at Austin Music Hall. We've got a full set of pictures (like the one above) of the first night over at BV Austin. Setlists from both nights below.
As discussed, that tour brings him to NYC this week for a show at Madison Square Garden on Friday (1/30) with Run the Jewels. That's now sold out.

Hundred Waters at Terminal 5 in 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...
Nancy Whang (The Juan Maclean/LCD Soundsystem) (DJ Set) @ Brooklyn Bowl
An integral member of LCD Soundsystem and The Juan Maclean, Nancy Whang knows how to keep a dancefloor full. Perhaps she'll drop one of the new Juan Maclean tracks from their forthcoming album.
Zongo Junction, Chicano Batman, KariKatura @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Brooklyn Night Bazaar offers weekends of local artisan shopping, gourmet eats, beer and wine, ping pong, black light minigolf and music all under one Greenpoint roof. Tonight's entertainment is headlined by Brooklyn afrobeat band Zongo Junction.
Hundred Waters, Mas Ysa @ Glasslands
Hundred Waters make more of their eccentric art pop on this year's excellent The Moon Rang Like A Bell, with more electronics this time around (but not like the kinds their OWSLA labelmates use).
Bubbles, VnessWolfChild, Ryan Power, Trabajo, Brian Chase, Raul de Nieves, Cloud Becomes Your Hand, Dutch E Germ, Zero to 0 (Hisham Bharoocha & Ranjit Bhatnagar) @ Knockdown Center
The Knockdown Center is throwing a closing reception for its Anxious Spaces installation, with performances by Dutch E Germ, Bubbles, Brian Chase (of Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Trabajo, VenessWolfChild, Rul de Nieves, Cloud Becomes Your Head and more. Entrance is $7-15 sliding scale.
DJ EZ, Todd Edwards, Maxmillion Dunbar, Ramona Lisa, J-Cush @ MoMA PS1
A good way to get out early for the Saturday of your July 4th Weekend is to head to MoMA PS1 for the all-day Warm Up with yet another lineup of forward thinking electronic music. The show is the NYC debut of UK garage vet DJ EZ, and also includes American house vet Todd Edwards, RVNG's Maxmillion Dunbar, Chairlift singer Caroline Polachek's solo project Ramona Lisa, and Lit City Trax's J-Cush.
DJ EZ, Kissy Sell Out @ Output's Panther Room
Keep the party going late night with DJ EZ in Output's Panther Room.
The Robert Glasper Experiment ft. Talib Kweli, Glenn Kotche (of Wilco), Aja Monet @ Prospect Park Bandshell
It's another free Celebrate Brooklyn show in Prospect Park with a very diverse lineup headlined by jazz/hip hop collective The Robert Glasper Experiment who will be joined by Brooklyn rap great Talib Kweli.
Warthog, Leather Daddy, Jock's Blood, Ajax @ Saint Vitus
It's a great punk night at Saint Vitus, headlined by former The Men member Chris Hansell's band Warthog, who recently put out an excellent 7" on Iron Lung Records.
Widowspeak, Zachary Cale @ Union Pool
Union Pool's Saturday afternoon series "Summer Thunder" is a good one this week with Widowspeak and Zachary Cale. It's free, outside, with drink specials and the taco truck in the backyard (that actually serves brunch stuff), and a pretty fun way to spend your day.
Iron Chic, Cancers, Great Thunder, Now People @ Union Pool
Later that night at Union Pool, gruff Long Island punks Iron Chic return to Brooklyn for this show which is made a great double bill by Waxahatchee/Swearin' side project Great Thunder.
