He means the bands Jack rotates throughout the show. He has a male and a female group, and sometimes he mixes them.

He did a lot of mixing and matching throughout at Lollapalooza, it was interesting to watch. Dude has Captain Beefheart-level control of his band.

For some shows early in the tour, he would come out with two bands: first half of the set it was an all-female band, and the second half would be an all-male group.

Ah. He had just the all-women band last night. They were great.

Although I was pretty far back; if he swapped out a few players, I might not have noticed.

This is pretty much the only way I shop, so if packaging changes, I'm screwed.

I'm still impressed that Jack managed to fit 20 songs into 90 minutes when I saw him, and it never felt like he was rushing through the songs.

Plus, it was a slightly uncommon show with both Ball and Biscuit AND Black Math No I'm Slowly Turning Into You though, which was disappointing.

We got I'm Slowly, but not the other two.

I had this same experience, but I could see just fine. Of all the times I've seen Jack White, thus was the least compelling, which was why I didn't go again when he came through town again.

Oops, I lied. He did play Ball and Biscuit.

I liked that he played songs from all his various incarnations (not that I would recognize a Dead Weather song if it bit me in the ass - I have one of the CDs but haven't listened to it much; will have to remedy that).

Looking at the setlist, I have to say I didn't realize he'd played so many songs!


Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground
Missing Pieces
Weep Themselves to Sleep
Love Interruption
Hotel Yorba
Top Yourself
Hypocritical Kiss
Screwdriver
Blue Blood Blues
I'm Slowly Turning Into You
I Guess I Should Go to Sleep
The Same Boy You've Always Known
The Hardest Button to Button

Encore:
Sixteen Saltines
Freedom At 21
Steady, As She Goes
Blunderbuss
We're Gonna Be Friends
Take Me With You When You Go
Ball and Biscuit
Suzy Lee / Seven Nation Army
Goodnight, Irene

The only thing that disappointed me was that Jack is doing some palm muting thing to introduce Seven Nation Army instead of driving the crowd nuts with the kick drum. I have no idea what that's about.

Did he have the audience sing the riff for the last verse? That was pretty cool.

He had a big pause before he started the song, like we knew it had to be next, and he was all "Yeah, you know it. Just wait ... wait for it ......."

I snuck out during Goodnight Irene because it was a long walk to my car, but I was humming it all the way down the block, so it's like I stayed for the whole song!

He announced a show in Montreal in October and I'm tempted to go, although that would mean more money spent on airfare that I can't really afford.

Who am I kidding, I'll probably go.

Hotel Yorba was way better than I thought it would be. Better than the album version, IMO. It's been fleshed out beautifully.

I'm still a bit disappointed that he isn't playing On and On and On.
