The Dead Weather, Brooklyn

I know, it's been at least 72 hours since I mentioned the Dead Weather.

The Brooklyn show was awesome - it's already up on Dime. Go get. If you can't find, let me know and I'll set you up.

Here's a video.

The Dead Weather, "I Can't Hear You" 11-17-2009 from StopRemembering on Vimeo.

Apart from just rocking harder than any band I've heard in the last ten years, it illustrates that man/woman non-commutative thing. Baby Ruthless can cannon into Dean, or shove Jack White, and they just smile. But when 6'4" Jack White shoves Baby Ruthless, she lands hard on the floor. Hope she bit his ear off later, the bully.

Hi Sis

definitely some genuine aggro between Big Jack and Babe and she also looks spaced out, all an act or genuine?

Act, I'm sure. I bet JW had no idea he was so much stronger than Baby Ruthless. Hope he learned something, though.

I do love that video. Jackie seemed to be in a particularly fractious mood that night, treating both Baby and his guitar quite nastily. Funny to watch him back her up against Dean when she comes back at him after the flying shove.

@KD: Yes, the shove was just instinctive, I think. She got too close by accident and he reacted. But the backing her against Dean was quite deliberate. I love the way that she is physically dominated but psychologically she continues to stand up to him. (Yes, I know we're on opposite sides on this issue...I love Baby Ruthless.)

Actually, he gives her a little shove earlier in the song, too, as he crosses behind her from Dean's side of the stage to his pedal board. Wasn't this show a few days after the hair pulling? Perhaps he decided to get back at her this night ;)

The 2010 tour is so very tame in comparison...
