The White Stripes will be showing off their documentary, "Under Great White Northern Lights" at this year's SXSW Festival down in Austin, Texas. The below article is taken from The Austin Chronicle:|
"SXSW started as a music fest first, so it's kind of a no-brainer that SXSW Film would make room for movies about music. Hey, you know who makes music and is in a new movie? The White Stripes.
The feature-length documentary, called Under Great White Northern Lights, premiered at the Toronto Film Festival back in September, but the SXSW screening will be the first stateside showing for Emmett Malloy’s film. According to press materials, it’s a “visual and emotional feature length film documenting The White Stripes making their way through Canada and culminating with their 10th anniversary show in Nova Scotia.”
The press release goes on to say that “[t]he SXSW premiere will set the stage for the enigmatic duo’s first-ever official live album release on March 16, featuring 16 songs on both vinyl and CD, as well as the film.” We’re going to now kick open the door to Wild Speculation and Irresponsible Rumor-Mongering to wonder out loud if this means Jack and Meg will be making their way to Austin come March. "
I particularly like the last sentence. I know you do as well. Consider my fingers crossed.
