[Jack] White, wearing his hair slicked back and dressed in a dark pinstripe suit with a handkerchief in his lapel, opened his set with a torrid version of a White Stripes song that contained a locally relevant political statement - "Icky Thump," with its line, "Why don't you kick yourself out, you're an immigrant, too."
White was making his first appearance with his solo band after appearing twice with the White Stripes and once each with his bands, Dead Weather and the Raconteurs. He played a set representative of his musical career with a six-piece band including a violinist that was highlighted on his old-timey, "Hotel Yorba."[The Desert Sun]
