Mark your calendars, The Dead Weather unleash their newest album upon the world on May 11th. But you’ll be able to get a taste of the full album this coming Monday on a Myspace live stream. Begining at 3pm PST/6pm EST on the band’s Myspace page, Jack, Alison, Little Jack, and Dean will perform the album front to back in the live room at the Third Man Records building in downtown Nashville, the same space in which they played their very first show in March 2009 .
Once again another stellar show from The Dead Weather, this time at the Music Hall of Williamsburg.
The band performed songs off their debut album, Horehound, as well as one new song, “No Horse”:
From the Dead Weather mailing list:
Jack White has just finished directing the video for “I Cut Like A Buffalo”. Steeped in strong colors juxtaposed with high contrast, moody, black and white footage, it is as provocative as it is stylistically eccentric. Shot entirely at the Third Man headquarters in Nashville, TN, “I Cut Like A Buffalo” will premier exclusively in the UK at 10am GMT on Friday, October 2nd for 24hrs on the VidZone music video application on Playstation 3. It will be available exclusively in the US and Canada on AOL Music’s Spinner.com on Friday, October 2nd starting at 11 am EST.
As you probably already know, the new documentary It Might Get Loud featuring legendary electric guitar players Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin), The Edge (U2), and Jack White (White Stripes, The Raconteurs, Dead Weather) opens this Friday (Aug 14) in NY and LA. The film, helmed by director Davis Guggenheim (executive producer of An Inconvenient Truth), focuses on the three guitarists and their individual relationships with the instrument.
Tonight I had a chance to screen the film, and I’m pleased to report that fans of rock ‘n’ roll have nothing to fear–the movie is a joyous celebration of all things axmen. Even if you go into the theater without being a fan of any of the featured guitarists, by the end of the film you’ll have a newfound respect and reverence for all of them. In fact, if you’re anything like me, you’ll end up running home and spinning all your old Zeppelin, U2, and White Stripes albums and finding yourself listening to them with a whole new set of ears.
