i heart you too, tony.
tony wrote a way better review of the white stripes than mine, so go check him out if you really want to know what happened. he went on a different night but the power and the glory don't really change from show to show.
the white stripes teach me so much, but mostly what they're teaching me right now is that it's ok to be messy and on fire and human. they are the most human band i know. they celebrate the danger and consuming hunger of being human and they flout the values of containment, sobriety, peace and elegance that you get with almost all radio bands, especially your coldplays and such.
