WHITE STRIPES FIRST EVER LIVE SHOW TO BE RELEASED
Third Man Records released their 13th Vault package today, on Jack White's birthday no less, and made hoards of White Stripes fans very, very happy. Included in their upcoming 13th Vault package will be the first ever White Stripes live show, recorded at Detroit's now-defunct Gold Dollar club on August 14, 1997. Of course this will be a vinyl only release. Also included in the package is a 7-inch red vinyl recording from an earlier performance at an open mic night at the Gold Dollar on July 14, 1997. Finally, rounding out the package is a peppermint 12" record black tote bag with 2 sided & inner print. According to TMR, the design is based off the original peppermint painting by Jack White.
RECENT INTERVIEW WITH JACK ON DUTCH TV
We're still alive here at WhiteStripes.net. Life has been very busy lately. However, things are constantly happening in the Little Room. If you have not joined the best White Stripes / Jack White related community, what are you waiting for?
Jack was recently on the Dutch TV program "Newshour". Here is the full unedited interview:
JACK WHITE INTERVIEWED IN "INTERVIEW" MAGAZINE BY BUZZ ALDRIN
This month's "Interview" features an extensive.. uh, interview with Jack White by none other than Buzz Aldrin. Try to pick yourself up a copy before it leaves stores. If you aren't into reading, there's always the pictures to look at. Here's a teaser. Be sure to click on the link above for the full interview.
"ALDRIN: You have a song on the album called "Love Interruption"? What's that about?
WHITE: Well, as a songwriter, it's really dangerous to use the word love in a song. It's a word that has been used in songs so many millions of times before, and it's the most popular topic to ever write about. So I thought that if I was going to be brave enough to actually use the word love in a song, I better be trying to make people think about it—and make myself think about it. I really wanted to stir up the notion of what love could mean, and what we really want when we say that word. It's a very powerful word.
ALDRIN: When love is interrupted, doesn't that mean you've been jilted?
WHITE: I think so, yeah. I think that sometimes love gets in the way of itself—you know, love interrupts itself. We want things so much that we sabotage them."

LAST DAY TO ENTER CONTEST TO WIN WHITE STRIPES ITEMS
Last month on February 21st WhiteStripes.net and the Little Room turned 10! During these past ten years we watched the White Stripes evolve into one of the best rock 'n roll bands of all time and go out on top! So, with that said, I have decided to run a contest/donation drive. The contest contains some rare items and your donation will help out with regards to the hosting costs for the website as well as the Little Room messageboard. Here's the skinny. For just a $10 donation to WhiteStripes.net you will be entered in the running for not one, but TWO Rob Jones White Stripes concert posters. I have collected these over the years and have obtained duplicates from time to time. The first poster is from a show I attended (and was lucky enough to meet Jack and Meg!). June 23rd, 2003 in Cincinnati, Ohio. The second poster is from the November 24, 2003 show in Camden, NJ. Also included will be the Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground 7" single, released back in 2002. To make things more interesting for every $5 donated after the initial $10 you will receive another entry. So, for example, a $15 donation throws your name in the hat twice. Along with the posters and 7" vinyl single, the winner will receive some various items (stickers, pins, etc) from the load of Icky Thump promotional material I still have. The winner will be drawn random style and will receive an email from me shortly after the contest ends AT MIDNIGHT EST Friday, March 16th. The winner will also be announced in the news feed on WhiteStripes.net
WhiteStripes.net and the Little Room survives on YOUR help! Thank you very much to those who contribute!
