The seats were great but the only drawback was we couldn't see Meg, which really disappointed Mr. BAW. Eventually some people left our section and we were able to move down a little and get a better view.

And guess what? Martha was there again!


Oh man, what a show! I think it was the best concert I've been to in years. I wish I could have seen all 4 shows.
My husband went again - waiting for him to arrive home. He was sitting way in the back (cheap seats & cheap tix!). He said they played longest tonight (via phone). If you guys want to compare notes, let me know. He was also outside the Greek for Tuesday evening's show, which he said seemed a little 'unfocused' I think...

And martha went to yet another show!

So we're sitting there and surprise! our beautiful Martha comes up to give us some and some ...thanks.

Another surprise for the night; the light go dark, Jack starts out heavy and we kinda slide down the aisle due to open seats..(we're in Sec. A Row 3)...suddenly, I see private security escort an older guy and young blonde and they walk past me and she settles in right next to Mr. BAW's right shoulder...she smelled sooooo good and she looked pretty fine, up close and personal! I'm not one to stare so I don't..so I'm next to this gal for 3 songs or so and we slide back to our original seats 6 to the left when the blonde and her escort head back out...OMG! BAW and I now recognize that it was the "Hollaback Girl" herself, Gwen Stefani!!! I rubbed shoulders with Gwen Freakin' Stefani!!!

I'll never wash that shirt again!

and she couldn't be bothered to stay & watch the show? Hubby said he saw some blond getting out of a limo and partying like crazy. Well, at least you enjoyed yourself,

Hubby said it was the best of the 3 he saw/heard!

They didn't, but all is forgiven; everything else they played was incredible.


(This is a such a stealth thread. It's about some band that no one's heard of, yet we discuss the White Stripes.)

White, Benson Make A Racket With Greenhornes

By Brian Garrity and Jonathan Cohen, N.Y.

The project White Stripes vocalist/guitarist Jack White has been working on with singer/songwriter Brendan Benson and Greenhornes bassist Jack Lawrence and drummer Patrick Keeler has been christened the Raconteurs.

"We'll probably be coming out with a new record next year,” White reveals to Billboard.com. “We're almost done with it. It's something totally new for me -- two songwriters working together. Dual vocals, dual lead guitars, dual songwriting duties."

"It's a brand new band," White insists. "It's not just me and Brendan; Patrick and Jack are very talented musicians. The songs are giant. They're really large."

"It's cool, different stuff," Benson told Billboard.com last year. "Some of it sounds like Jack and some of it just sounds like Cat Stevens or something."

The Greenhornes will have plenty of time to interact with White in the months ahead, having just been chosen as the opening act for the White Stripes' upcoming North American tour.

In addition, the recent iTunes EP "East Grand Blues" will be released on CD in August via the band's own Prize Brigade Recordings. It features "Shine Like the Sun," which was recorded by Benson.

I bought this on cd a few days after they played here. It's good, but they were better live.

I liked the Greenhorns enough that I bought their ep, but overall i thought they were boring live. Of course when you are waiting for Jack White to come out everything seems boring. Although their bassist was awesome.
