The Dead Weather (Jack White and the chick from the Kills), Screaming Females
Fri., July 17, 8 p.m. 2009; $30, $35 at the door
Music: Rock, Pop and Hip-Hop
You might not like this, but let's just shelve this whole Dead Weather thing for now, ok? Jack White plays the drums while the girl from the Kills, who used to be in the pop-punk band Discount does her thing. Whatever. The draw here tonight is New Brunswick's Screaming Females, with their pummeling blues-rock that's half Sleater-Kinney and half Jimi Hendrix.
