The Dead Weather (Jack White’s OTHER other band) has played only two small shows since appearing on the music scene in March. And already the all-star band, with White behind the drum kit, Allison Mossheart of The Kills on vocals, has pulled together a 27-date kicking off in Louisville, Ky., on June 11, with an album, Horehound, slated to drop on July 14, in the midst of the tour.
The Dead Weather absolutely rocked the house at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom on April 14 (UPDATE: Exclusive photos added), the band’s their first truly public outing. Jack let Allison have the spotlight most of the evening, and she made the most of it — teasing the audience with her powerful, raw vocals and her seductive moves.
That show came barely a month after Jack unveiled the band to an invited audience of 150 at the March 11 opening of his Third Man Records HQ in Nashville.
