Jack White Stomps Through 'Austin City Limits' Set

Rolling Stone

Jack White's Austin City Limits performance aired on PBS last night, and the rocker took on old and new material for his hour long set, visiting tracks from the White Stripes, the Raconteurs, the Dead Weather his solo debut Blunderbuss and covers of Blind Willie Johnson and Hank Williams. White brought out both his all-male and all-female backing bands, the Buzzards and the Peacocks, who took turns helping him out. The rocker capped his intense set with a soothing rendition of the White Stripes' "We're Going to be Friends," but White stomps and rips through the rest of the set.
