OMG, did you hear?! Jack flipping White and Conan mother-effing O’Brien played a show together at the Third Man Records headquarters last night! Unfortunately, what with their being all the way over in Nashville, Tennessee, and my being stuck all the way over here in Middle of Nowhere, New Jersey, I was unable to witness this historical moment. But, the show has apparently been recorded and pressed on vinyl (sweet sweeeeeeet vinyl), and while it hasn’t been made totally clear yet whether or not those records were intended only for the attendees of the concert or for the general public as well, the point is this: there now exists a recording of Conan O’Brien and Jack White jamming together. On vinyl. And if this record ever gets released to those not lucky enough to have seen it live, you know I’m a-gettin’ it. Because those guys are my heroes. And now they’re together on vinyl (!!!!!!!!!!!).
You can read the details (as well as see some lovely photographs) of the gig here.
