Both bands played excellently, but the White Stripes played only an hour and thirty minutes including encore, which was disappointing because everyone told me they had been playing really long shows lately. I don't remember the setlist, so don't ask, but they didn't play Fell In Love With A Girl, which was a little bit of a letdown. Otherwise, I thought they were fantastic. They messed up a bunch of times and had to add fills so they wouldn't have to stop playing, and I've never seen a band in a big venue do that before, but it added to the "realism" of the music, that it's not overproduced pop. Jack did some insane solos, one especially wild one with a slide. Overall, awesome show.

Hipsters like The Shins and The White Stripes? I thought they were all about Clap Your Hands Say Yeah.

I like both, and Neopryn will tell you, I'm not a hipster.

But they seem to be bands that "cool" and "trendy" people like because they are weird and different and cutting edge or whatever. You know, like indie music. But anyway, yeah, Jack White is awesome.

When I pay 40-50 dollars for a ticket, I think the show should last at least two hours. Why should they be so short? That's stupid, there's no point in going.

The White Stripes are hit or miss.

Meg White is the worst drummer ever
