The Dead Weather

For a new band, with almost no released music, The Dead Weather sure did get big quick! That was an attempt at sarcasm, because really it's no surprise that Jack White's new band would choose Terminal 5 (on July 16th) as the location of their 2nd NYC show. Their first was at Bowery Ballroom.

The Dead Weather will be touring this summer with multiple dates in some cities, and just one show in NYC (for now?). Tickets for most of the shows go on presale on Wednesday. The NYC show goes on sale at Ticketmaster on Friday at noon ($30).

"The band's debut album Horehound, the first record to be recorded and released via Jack White's new Third Man studios and record label in Nashville, TN, will be made available through Third Man/Warner Bros Records on July 14th 2009. To date, The Dead Weather have released two tracks via iTunes and on limited edition 7" vinyl: "Hang You From The Heavens" and "Are Friends Electric?""

In related news, Meg White is now engaged "to guitarist Jackson Smith, the son of iconic rockers Patti Smith and Fred Smith".

UPDATE The White Stripes say it is not Meg in the tape.

Meg under fire

I'd rather not report on this. I feel even worse knowing that the sex tape (link removed) is what might be causing Meg White's ''acute anxiety'. But the Internet is what it is, and if I don't post about it, it will be in the comments anyway - and it will be what everyone is talking about today one way or another (update: it is of course also possible that the tape is not even really her), so consider this the BrooklynVegan forum for talking about it, but please be nice....

Meg WhiteWell, I guess that solves that. The White Stripes and Arcade Fire were scheduled to play at the same time at Austin City Limits this upcoming weekend. Now I know who I'll go see at that time (still haven't decided between MIA & LCD Soundystem or Wilco & My Morning Jacket though).....

Producers were informed today that Grammy-award winning band The White Stripes are canceling their Austin City Limits Music Festival performance, scheduled for Saturday, September 15. As of the time of this release, medical reasons have been given for the cancellation.

The White Stripes were scheduled to play on the AT&T stage at 8:30 pm to close out the night at the Festival. At this time, a replacement has not been announced.
I guess that also means more people will be looking for another afterparty to go to, since The White Stripes were also supposed to play one of the official (sold out) aftershows at Stubb's. Thanks to everyone who emailed me about this, and let's hope that the medical reason is not serious.
