Possibly The Most Awesome Night on Earth: The Strokes + White Stripes @ Irving Plaza

What’s up w/ the Ryan Adams crotch shots? Link via Catherine.

Last night, The Strokes BLEW THE ROOF OFF. Julian has a new Dorthy Hamill haircut, Niko got a trim… I can’t remember anything else because it was SO HOT IN THERE, I WANTED TO TAKE OFF MY CLOTHES. Mucho “celeb” sightings, but let’s not talk about that. They sang the new song whatever it’s called and the 3 other “new” songs… did they? Um.. didn’t play “When It Started,” don’t think. Um… huh? Where am I?

THE BEST PART WAS WHEN JULIAN HOPPED ON STAGE. ROCK ON.

Oh yeah, and like The White Stripes were there too.

I’m sorry, I really can’t explain it, but as much as I love the White Stripes, it was really all about The Strokes last night. Totally. It’s the first show they’ve done in New York in… 8 months… and it’s just… *sigh* dunno. Great.

THERE AREN’T ANY PICTURES, SO DON’T GET YOUR PANTIES IN A TWIST.

The Week of Death Continues…

TO ANYONE WHO WRITES ME THIS WEEK, SORRY FOR THE LACK OF COMMUNICATION (AND THE VON BONDIES REFERENCE) BUT THE WEEK OF CONCERT DEATH CONTINUES TOMORROW… THE STROKES AND THE WHITE STRIPES… I CAN’T TALK TO YOU RIGHT NOW… PRAY I DON’T DIE AND I’LL RESPOND SOONER OR LATER. BUT SEND THE MAIL! I LOVE IT. I READ IT, BUT DON’T HAVE TIME TO WRITE BACK. AS VINCE WOULD SAY, IT’S MEGA-SHOWASIS WEEKASIS!

Random Thoughts about the White Stripes While You’re Still Desperately Trying to Finish Schoolwork

At Friday’s White Stripes show Jack said the audience was “too cool for school,” which is a phrase I’ve been using heavily for the last few months to describe non-reacting hipster crowds.

I missed Saturday Night Live this week because I was too busy jumping up and down to “Jimmy The Exploder” at the Bowery. No big whoop, you might say (The SNL part, not the “JTE” part)? Michelle informed me they did a Jamie Oliver skit. Daaamn.

And I really have to say WHITE STRIPES WEEKEND has been one of the happiest concert weekends of my life. WHITE STRIPES 4EVER AND ALWAYS. VIVA LE WHITE STRIPES. If you have the opportunity to go see them and you don’t- YOU’RE A DAMN FOOL. I can’t stress this enough. GET YOUR ASS IN MOTION AND GET YOURSELF SOME WHITE STRIPE LOVIN’! I don’t care who you have to beg.

My brain has been blown out of my head. I’ve gone White Stripes crazy. How often does something like that happen? I half expect Jack White to spontaneously combust on stage one day- because that’s what it feels like is happening when he starts to play. I’ve lost it. I’m sorry.


Tomorrow Tonight, all I want is… “THE BIG THREE KILLED MY BABY.”

Best Show EVER!

The crowd was into it so Jack didn’t have to yell at us for the lack of clapping. There was even one point where everyone was screaming out “YEAH!” in unison… about 7 times with guitar breaks for Jack. Loads of dancing- a bit of moshing. Fun was had by all.


Bo Weevil! Apple Blossom! Rated X! Astro! Jimmy The Exploder! You’re Pretty Good Looking! Hello Operator! Little Bird! Fell In Love With A Girl! Hotel Yorba! And many many more!

The White Stripes 4Ever!

Astro! Jack The Ripper! I Think I Smell A Rat! Hotel Yorba! Jolene! You’re Pretty Good Looking! Dead Leaves On The Dirty Ground! Fell In Love With A Girl! Screwdriver! Rated X! Hello Operator! We Are Going To Be Friends! Union Forever! And many many more…!

Approx. 65 minutes of WHITE STRIPE PLEASURE.

Sadly I was standing on the wrong side… so the pics are crap. Oh well.

Hey- Jack White has a dimple on his left cheek… like James Walsh and Fran Healy… He also has bronchitis- but that’s just him.

I also might have been the only person who actually liked the Datsuns.

And yes, rock world celeb sightings occurred. It’s up to you to figure out who they were…

Rock ‘n’ Roll!

Totally Dissed by the B&N Dude

I’m on the telephone with the Barnes and Nobel people to inquire about some books I need for class and I said, “I also have another query…” “Query? Oooookaay,” he says. I was just dissed by the B&N guy. It’s not my fault that my vocab is extensive… and honestly, I really have no idea why I said “query” instead of “question.” I’m a freak.

Sorry:

See what Care Bear you are.

Ditching the Brit, Big William style.

Oh, and if you haven’t seen the Lego-tastic White Stripes vid for “Fell In Love With A Girl” check it over at the Beeb radio.

We like old interview, to remind us what has happened and where we are now. SS-style.
