  • White Stripes at the Fox

    I'm debating on whether or not I'm going. I have great seats (third row from the stage), but I have so little time at home anymore that I'm thinking about trying to sell the ticket and go home after my show. Plus, I've sort of reached the age where being surrounded by a bunch of screaming teenagers does little for me. Any suggestions?

    1) is it sold out?
    2) if it is, sell the ticket on ebay....

        I remember seeing the White Stripes at the Creepy Crawl... they opened for the Greenhorns in 1998.

        I have a tour T-Shirt.

        I also saw the White Stripes with the Flaming Lips in Chicago this past Near Year's Eve... I'll sell that merch, too.

        Who's buyin'?

                I actually dig them, but at this point, I would rather have the extra hour or so with my kids then be around a bunch of vapid teenagers and not get home until around midnight and have to work the next day...

                  I went to this show last night, and I thought it was great.

                  The white stripes have a lot of great songs, their set was beautiful, and the fox was really the perfect venue for them. Big, Big, Crowd there.

                  It was pretty cool watching Jack White stumble around stage trying to decide what song he wanted to play next. He had about 5 guitars, a piano, a keyboard, a marimba (arabian xylophone), and a small hawaian ukelele. He would go back and forth between the instruments, pick one up, and start playing a song. Meg, Jack's ex-wife and the only other person in the band, would start playing the drums as soon as she figured out what song Jack was launching into. Very cool watching them interact with each other.

                  Now I am a big White Stripes fan going in, and I'm sure I'm not the only one on this board who is. There where people of all ages and from all walks of life in attendance. Im surprised that the $40 price tag didnt scare more people off-- but those that came, where no doubt happy that they did. The headliners played about a 50 minute set, followed by a 35 minute encore. The opening band, the Greenhornes, were decent altho nothing spectacular.

                  Some highlights from the White Stripes Set:
                  - The folkish sing-a-long "Little Ghost"
                  - The extremely hard rocking "Red Rain"
                  - The poppy hit "Hotel Yorba"
                  - and when Jack started off the encore singing by himself, "You've got her in your pocket"

                    That figures...I ended up not going and couldn't find anyone to take the tix, so two third-row seats went to waste...ah, well...

                      I went as well.


                      Fucking great show. He rocks his ass off up there.


                      Little disappointed the show ended at 1030 though.

                        wow, the Brian Wilson show at the American actually ended later!?
                        I didn't get out of there until almost 11pm.
