The White Stripes @ Bonnaroo 6.17.01

Ever been to one of those shows that you walk away from thinking “if that’s the best concert I see this year, I’m doing alright” ? I’d say that about eighty thousand people had just that experience at Bonnaroo after the White Stripes.

Jack and Meg’s thunderous performance is the stuff of dreams for fans and a thing of nightmares for any band that has to follow (sorry Widespread Panic, I didn’t even bother). I’ve got to agree with John “Ivory Tower” Rodderick, Jack is nothing short of a national treasure. His riffs are pulled straight from heaven, electrified and shot through a red and white filter.
