White Stripes New DVD Release, Under Great White Northern Lights

I just got back from a long trip outside the country. I brought some music, but not much. One thing I did bring was a recording of a White Stripes concert from 2007 that I didn't have a chance to get to in person. I found myself on buses and ferries in South America absolutely rocking out to this show. It reminded me of how much I enjoy the band's music and that while I enjoy The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather, neither can replace the simplicity of the two piece Jack and Meg.

So you can imagine my excitement when I heard about this new DVD that was recently released, Under Great White Northern Lights.

First premiering last summer/fall this production has gained momentum as being a rock documentary of the 'can't miss' variety. Filmed on the band's Canadian 2007 tour this is really the last we've heard from the band since the 'break' that the White Stripes have been on ever since. They popped their heads up for Conan and there was talk of a new album, but for fans looking for something, anything even kinda fresh, there is this...and it's supposed to be good. How different will it be from their previously released, Under Blackpool Lights? I dunno, but I'm gonna watch it to find out.

In the spirit of 2007 White Stripes. Here are the first 4 songs they performed at their July 24th, 2007 show at Madison Square Garden.

1. Dead Leaves and The Dirty Ground
2. When I Hear My Name
3. Jolene
4. Hotel Yorba

If you want the whole set, leave a comment or drop a note. We can work something out.
