jack White Austin City Limits



Blunderbuss stormed through many 2012 year end Top Albums lists. It seems the theme of 2012 was Jack White being anywhere and everywhere. That trend isn’t coming to a hault here in the first week 2013 with the video of his performance on Austin City Limits on PBS hitting the interwebs. The set list is as follows:

Freedom at 21>Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground>Missing Pieces>Cannon/John the Revelator>You Know That I Know>Blunderbuss>Love Interruption>Hypocritical Kiss>Screwdriver/Blue Blood Blues>I’m Slowly Turning Into You>Top Yourself >We’re Going to Be Friends

You can view the video below, courtesy of PBS.

So check out who was on Conan last night, none other than Jack White. With his female backing band (I heard he’s got two backing bands one is boys, one is girls) the pale skinned superstar performed “I’m Shakin'” from his debut solo effort Blunderbuss .

Jack White, Guns N Roses, The Flaming Lips & More For 2012 Bridge School Benefit

Jack White, Guns N Roses, The Flaming Lips & More For 2012 Bridge School Benefit 

So Neil Young‘s annual  Bridge School Benefit(Oct. 20-21 at the  Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View) has announced it’s lineup via a Youtube video. Performing will be of course Neil Young & Crazy Horse along with Jack White, The Flaming Lips, Steve Martin and the Sleep Canyon Rangers, Gary Clark Jr., Sarah Mclachlin, Foster The People, k.d. Lang and, oh yeah, the band currently touring under the moniker of Guns N Roses????

 That’s right folks, Axl Rose and Co. are one of the bands that pop up in the video revealing the lineup. All of the terms in the dictionary that describe charitable givings, caring for other people, being a decent person-none of these qualities describe Axl Rose. So how the hell this all came about is beyond any of us here at Concert Confessions (except Reverend Justito) . It just doesn’t make sense. Anyway, check out the video below, and if it’s bogus then the world is more terrible than I thought it was.

Update 09/11/12: Ray LaMontagne has been added to the lineup.

Virgin Mobile’s 2012 “FreeFest”: Jack White and Skrillex to Headline

You know the more cool shows and stuff that get’s announced out of Maryland and Delaware, the more I think it wouldn’t be so bad to head down there from time to time-even if it’s a 5+ hour drive from New York City.

Returning to the to Merriweather Post Pavilion in Maryland on October 6th, will be the “Virgin Mobile FreeFest” . 2012 Festival favorites  Jack White and Skrillex top the list of acts, which also features the likes of Nas (who’s new album Life is Good, is indeed awesome), M83, Ben Folds Five and ZZ Top.

This festival contains two main stages and we’ve got the full list of acts below.  Now let’s talk about the title of “Freefest” :

-Free tickets to the festival will be available to the public on August 24th  at 12PM (Noon) over at Ticketfly.

-Freefest has a limited amount of “Freemium Packages ,” that can get you admission into the festival but require a ‘charitable donation’ to Virgin Mobile USA’s Youth Homelessness Initiatives,. With that you get a FreeFest T-shirt, a souvenir cup (a cup that includes free fountain drinks for the duration of the festival) as well as early admission to the grounds. You can grab some Freemium tickets at Ticketfly or the box offices at the 9:30 Club as well as the  Merriweather Post Pavilion.


So the only question left, is who’s driving this writer??

Photo Gallery: 2012 Sasquatch Music Festival

You could use a ton of clichés to describe our pal Phishbeard. Let’s just say homeboy marches to the beat of his own drum. A nomad, a free spirit, someone who shoots first and asks questions later. Homeboy spent Memorial Day weekend at the Gorge enjoying the 2012 Sasquatch Music Festival. He took no less than 1200 photos. Here are the best ones. We hope you enjoy.

Jack White 05/31/12: Wiltern – Los Angeles, CA

Jack White 05/31/12

Wiltern – Los Angeles, CA

Words/Photos by Reverend Justito

There I was last night standing in the beer section of the Whole Foods where they shot that viral hit about it getting real in the parking lot when my phone honked with a new text message. The message simply said “Wanna go see Jack White in like an hour?” Should Whole Foods rename their store Whole Paycheck –  Fuck yeah I want to see Jack White in an hour. I quickly finished my shopping and after a brief yet triumphant stop at home I was speeding down interstate 10 en route to The Wiltern for a Jack White miracle thanks to Mr. Johnny Firecloud of Antiquiet fame.

We made it to the venue a few moments before Mr. White was set to take the stage. It was hard to miss the signage that made it clear cameras were not welcome and anyone violating this policy would be kicked out. With one of the signs sharing that photos would be available on Mr. White’s official website I decided on this particular evening I would respect his wishes and leave my camera in the car.

The night kicked off with the White Stripes favorite Dead Leaves on the Dirty Ground. As you probably know by now, Mr. White is playing multiple nights in numerous markets with two bands. One is made up of men; the other is made up of women. For the second sold out show at the Art Deco theatre it was ladies nights in Koreatown.

For 90 minutes, Mr. White lead his six piece backing band through a set that weaved classic material from the White Stripes, the Raconteurs and the Dead Weather with new songs from his recently released solo record Blunderbuss. For someone who has appreciated Mr. White from a distance for years but never seen him live in any capacity, I got a bit of everything and it was a great way to cross him off the bucket list.

For me the highlight was not so much what Mr. White played as much as the energy of what was going on in front of my eyes. Walk a mile in my shoes these days and you can’t help but be overwhelmed by the strength and beauty of women. Watching Mr. White lead his ladies through songs the likes of Freedom at 21, Hotel Yorba and Blue Blood Blues was not just another rock show as much as it was inspiration for the next chapter in this crazy journey called life.

After a rocking main set that also included beloved favorites like Love Interruption and Ball and Biscuit, the night closed with a massive encore that included seven songs. Amongst the songs included in the encore were Mr. White’s biggest hits – Seven Nation Army and Steady As She Goes. For the latter, Mr. White had no problem getting the often jaded Los Angeles crowd to sing and clap along. Yet it was the final number of the night that served as the much needed exclamation point to what was a truly amazing night. With my own daughter’s birth less than six weeks away (unless she is a typical Los Angeleno and fashionably late) this was the final show for bassist Byrn Davies before she delivers her own child. Mr. White and band mates said goodbye with an emotionally charged cover of the Huddie “Lead Belly” Ledbetter classic Goodnight, Irene.


On a night where I got in on a miracle; if this is the last confession before I experience the biggest miracle of all then let’s just say I can’t think of a better performance to close this chapter of my life.

Sasquatch! Festival 2012 Preview – A Letter to You From thenaturalstoner

Dear concert going friends,

I know you and I go way back (hope all is well!) and it has been a long time since we have talked, but there is just something extremely exciting that has built inside of me about what is going to happen this weekend at THE GORGE for the 2012 version of the Sasquatch! Festival that I must tell you about.  Last years Festival set the stage for a year of great memories and the need to “go back every year no matter what”.  We’ll see if that every year thing happens, but the terrible trio of thenaturalstoner, Phishbeard and Mr. Sparkly made it at least one more year and are ready to dominate every single thing about the next several days. I feel like last years performances by Chromeo, Modest Mouse, Foo Fighters, Sleigh Bells, Major Lazer and more have planted a seed at the Gorge that is about to sprout like a f’n weed and engulf all 20,000 of us that are going to be there for the entire four days.

But really who gives a shit about last year anymore.  I know you don’t.  We are talking about 2012 and hooolllllly shit does it look exciting. I will be heading in pretty early Friday night to see Of Monsters and Men kick off the Fest. Maybe even a little earlier for Allen Stone if I get the urge, but I have been hooked on that Of Monsters and Men album for a long while now.  Most of Santigold will follow, and then one of the sets I am looking forward to most all weekend, Starfucker!! Sadly this means I have to skip the Mark Lanegan Band, which is a bummer, really wanted to see that one. Half of Girl Talk and then another performance to be VERY excited about, Explosions in the Sky. I have been told numerous times that their last Sasquatch! Festival set absolutely owned the Festival and was a “life changing experience”.  I don’t want to get hopes too high, but that portion of Friday sounds amazing.  Then Pretty Lights to take the night home aka into the raucous Gorge Campground to continue the party late into the evening.

Saturday looks to be my longest day inside the venue by far. Ideally I will make it in bright and early at Noon to see Reptar > Charles Bradley while Pickwick will be hitting hard on a different stage. I may still be asleep at this time however and might not make it into The Gorge until Blitzen Trapper at 2pm.  One of my only conflicts of the entire weekend is after that, The Civil Wars vs. The Alabama Shakes vs. Portlandia.  This is a game time decision friends. I know Mr. Sparkly and I will be at Jamey Johnson at the Sasquatch Stage afterwards, and then I will either see Childish Gambino or AraabMuzik.  Seeing Gambino a few weeks back makes this a tough decision as I really like the AraabMuzik jams I have heard. Some free time where I will see an interesting mix of Metric, The Shins, St. Vincent and tUnE-yArDs continues the evening.  Probably my most anticipated set of the weekend, Jack White, followed by The Roots late night (HELL. YES.) caps off a Saturday for the ages.

I hope all is well back home. How is the family? Still got that pet, what’s its name?  Come visit us sometime, we miss seeing you up here.  Sparkly might be getting a new house, Phishbeards over in Oregon, I got an air mattress, come on up!  It will be like old times.

Back to the music.  Sunday to me is a complete free for all-except for the very end of the night.  I don’t really have much I MUST see this day, but there is an interesting assortment of bands playing: Trampled by Turtles, Blind Pilot, The War on Drugs, Chiddy Bang, M. Ward, Deer Tick, Tycho, The Head and the Heart and We Are Augustines are all early in the day.  I will be a roamer for sure (you remember how I do!). I might check out Apparat or Beirut before definitely catching half of Little Dragon.  My highlight of Sunday, a James Murphy DJ set up in the Banana Shack promises to be off the charts.  I’ll probably head over to get one song of Bon Ivers show on video so ConcertConfessions gets some web hits, and then its off to Feed Me (with Teeth!!) to dance the rest of the night away.

Monday will be somewhat bittersweet. A great day lined up to close out another long Memorial Day weekend full of memories (like back in the day when we were hangin’). I might get in there early for that Grouplove set, I don’t know. Gary Clark Jr. will be a for sure, especially after just watching his Hangout Festival set webcast, and then a little more free time for the MC.  The Joy Formidable, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah!, Cloud Cult, fun., Feist, Shabazz Palaces, and Shearwater are all early afternoon and I will bounce around the place. John C. Reilly and Friends over at the Yeti Stage will be a great time, but I will have to sadly miss The Cave Singers and most of Silversun Pickups because of it.  Then my only other real big conflict awaits. I am certainly going to see the start of SBTRKT in the Banana Shack, and will have to miss all of Spiritualized.  However, one of your favorites, Tenacious D, is playing shortly after SBTRKT starts and I will have to decide if staying for them is worth missing half of The D. Another decision that will be made on the spot. I will at least see the end of Tenacious D before getting just a small part of Mogwai in. I wish I could see more but the great Beck is closing out the Festival over on the main stage.  I have been wanting to see him for almost TWENTY years now, and this will be my first time getting to do so.  Remember listening to Mellow Gold on end back in the day?  I hope it’s amazing. It sure seems like a great way to end a Festival, way better than Wilcos tame set last year.

So that’s basically what I am up to these days. Nothing else is really going on. I hope you guys are all good over there and your mom and dad are well.  Tell your sister thenaturalstoner says hello, she’ll remember.

I will talk to you soon. You should try to come up for Quatch ’13.

Watch The White Stripes Live From The Greek Theatre 09/23/03

With it being Jack White week and all, we figured we would share this tasty gem we just discovered on YouTube. For those not living in Los Angeles, VoodooHipster (aka Brian) is one of the kindest most down to earth people you will meet in this city. He just posted the entire White Stripes performance from 09/23/03 at the Greek Theatre here in Los Angeles. You can watch Jack and Meg kick some serious ass in Griffith Park down below.

Once again big thanks to Voodoo Hipster for the killer footage. Make sure you subscribe to his YouTube home by clicking here.




Jack White On Later With Jools Holland Part 2

Jack White On Later With Jools Holland Part 2

Tonight after you hit the bong and drink a few beers you are going to go to Taco Bell. Who will pass you that Crunch Wrap Supreme and 7 Layer 4th meal through the drive-thru? None other than Jack White, that’s who. Then tomorrow when you wake and you open the medicine cabinet and grab the toothpaste, Jack White will be there. Oh and you know for a fact when you take the trash out, Jack White will be there to open the can for you. Why do I know this? Because Jack White is fucking everywhere this week that is why I fucking know this. His new album Blunderbuss is a five star effort and now that you have watched him on everything from Colbert to American Express UNSTAGED, we figured it was time to bring you part two of his appearance on Later…With Jools Holland. To check out part one of his performance click here. To check out all of Mr. White’s upcoming tour dates, click here.


Jack White Interviewed, Performed On Colbert Report

Jack White Interviewed, Performed On Colbert Report

Hey here’s a surprise, Jack White made a television appearance.

Since announcement of his solo trek across the United States and Beyond, Mr. White has been all over television, so much so that’s is starting to leave some of us bored with it already…  But in all seriousness, no matter what side of the fence you fall on: The “I Heart Jack White” side, or the “I’m so damn sick of Jack White already I want to puke with his same guitar tone on every riff” side, we can all agree on something. And that’s the fact that Stephen Colbert having musical guests on his show, is nothing short of awesome. We hope he does in more.

Anyway, below is video from White’s performance of  “Freedom At 21′.  Then under that we have the interview portion of the show. Check it out:

Jack White On Later… With Jools Holland

Jack White On Later With Jools Holland

If there’s one thing that America, the land of the free home of the brave doesn’t have, it’s a show like “Later… with Jools Holland”, who focused his show around the musical stylings of Jack White.


Normally the Late Night shows are where sitcom/movie stars and the occasional Presidential Candidate stop by to promote their own filth, while making us all wait. Making us wait through the stupid anecdotes about their “cute dog” or how they really had to really challenge that inner thespian in them to punch out those few scenes as a Starbucks Barista.    Usually I end up hating these people before the show ends, as they are like terrible openers for the headlining band I’m waiting to see.

Not across the pond. Jools Holland showcases musical talents on his late night show, and some video from Jack Whites stop has surfaced onto YouTube, and we’re here to bring that to you. Because that’s the kind of people we are. We know the album’s a hit, so who wouldn’t want to watch the man in need of a tan perform two songs off his solo debut, Blunderbuss? Videos are below:

Firefly Music Festival To Be Held In Delaware

Editors Note: This is The 2012 Lineup. For the 2013 Lineup, Click Here

Firefly Music Festival To Be Held In Delaware 

Delaware, welcome to the world of States that have sweet Music Festivals.

The news broke last night, that the three day  ’Firefly Music Festival’, will be headlined by The KillersThe Black Keys and Jack White .  Solid, right? I mean, sure The Killers aren’t in the stratosphere of musical relevance circa 2012 as the The Black Keys and Jack White are; but hey, they could have went with the Beach Boys, so we’ll chalk up those headliners as a win.

The ’2nd tier’ if you will, of headliners consists of The Flaming Lips (what AREN’T the Flaming Lips doing these days?), Death Cab For CutieJohn LegendGirl Talk and Passion Pit (cancelled as a result of mental health issues). Modest Mouse, a late edition to the festivities, announced on June 25th they’d be in Dover as well that weekend.

Dubbed the “East Coast’s Premier Music Experience”, will  kick off July 20th  at Woodlands of Dover International Speedway in Delaware and end July 22nd with 3 day passes going for a modest $178 (as of 6/28, 3-Day passes have been sold out), at the Festival’s official website. The rest of the listed acts are below.

Insane Clown Posse Will Ditch Makeup For Gathering of the Juggalos 2012

ICP Will Ditch Makeup For Gathering of the Juggalos 2012


Note: This story was part of our April Fool’s 2012 News Blast Spectacular. It is not to be confused with truth. We hope you enjoy. 

Back in September of 1983 KISS shocked the world by ditching their make up. In 2012, Insane Clown Posse will do the same at their annual event Gathering of the Juggalos. Rumored to be a co-headline festival with Phish, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope may or may not have released the following statement.

Yo u know timez are tough. We really want Jack White 2 play our Gathering and with the amount of makeup that dawg wearz we just knew we had to cut costs somewhere and figured hey why not show our real facezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz for the FAMILY.

While we are unaware of when ICP will put back on the makeup, rumor has it the group plans to shoot a episode of MTV Unplugged that will air Halloween night 2012.

Jack White is one of the undisputed champions of rock and roll. He’s jammed with Jimmy Page and The Edge, recorded with Danger Mouse, and led one of the most unlikely groups to massive mainstream success. With last year’s break up of  The White Stripes, and the upcoming release of his solo debut Blunderbuss, White performed two new songs on Saturday Night Live. So below here’s “Love Interruption” and “Sixteen Saltines” that you can watch it below.
