The first time I saw The White Stripes was right after De Stijl came out, at Mercury Lounge. The show eventually sold out, but I was able to walk up and pay cash to get in. I unfortunately missed the opening band, as it was The Yeah Yeah Yeah's first show, if I remember correctly.
The White Stripes were unbelievable that night. It was not hard to tell that they were going to be stars. It is a show that I will probably remember for the rest of my life.
Ladies and gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, The White Stripes.
