White Stripes @ Cincinnati 2005

The White Stripes performing at the Cincinnati Music Hall in Cincinnati, OH on September 12, 2005. Jack became increasingly angry at Meg for some reason (I think she was improvising and adding things that were throwing him off, and Jack's guitar kept going out of tune... I'll point it out in the notes because I'm a nitpicky bitch :D)

1:33:47 the final straw
1:33:59 The Nurse (Meg fucks this up lmao) 1:36:13 LMFAO
1:36:35 Seven Nation Army
("MY SISTER THANKS YOU AND I THANK YOU. GOOD NIGHT.") (jack yanks Meg's arm at the bow and she doesn't seem to enjoy that very much)

I knew I would have to do this, but you guys, I like this show and I think it's great. I just noticed something that was off about that night. Jack was obviously mad at something, Meg was messing up occasionally and Jack was frustrated, and I thought it was funny. Most of my humor is based on hyperbole, so I just overexaggerated the description because I thought it was funny. Don't think I was complaining about the show because if I thought it was bad, I wouldn't have uploaded it :)

  1. It is a great show i think.
    And sorry Aaron but from what i see there u are totally misreading most of the emotion going on… i cant figure out any situation where jack is mad or anything, i think they actually both enjoyed the show and had a good time. Literally every point u wrote down where there should be any high voltage between them is not there from my view…
    Either u are just knowing jack much better than i do, or you are kind of misleaded by anything…

  2. I wonder if Jack dreams about cheese often. Broken Bricks was a really nice surprise here, and special things was cool too. Did he do special things in a different key to fit with broken bricks better?

  3. Aaron, A few thoughts, i assumed he was pissed off as his mic had not been replaced before Ball and Biscuit and this was why he had to use Megs mic and there put it in his mouth to try and play and sing. therefore he was pointing to his empty mic stand after the song finished. As for him being in a bad mood im not so sure as i doubt he would speak about his dream like he did, i have not known him speak for such a long time, but i may be wrong. t he encore breaks are v interesting as these are a rarity for TWS. Thanks for the upload its a excellent and interesting concert.
