That being said, I have another great give-a-way to run today as well that might not be as big, but is pretty darn cool in its own right. I’m giving you a chance to win a copy of Under Great White Northern Lights, the film that documents The White Stripes’ summer tour across Canada back in 2007 while they were supporting the release of Icky Thump. It includes concert and back stage footage of the tour and includes sixteen songs performed which span the depth and breadth of their catalog. Also available is a single disc album of the same name.
While many concerts oftentimes sound like a replaying of album versions, only with less clarity and more smelly people bumping into you, that is not the case here. Jack and Meg go off in all sorts of directions while working their way through this artificially constructed set, and while most if not all of the songs will be familiar (they are all at least three years old or older after all), they feel fresh in their rawer concert forms.
So, if you want to get a free copy of the DVD delivered to your mailbox for you to watch in the comfort of your own home (maybe you can get a bunch of friends to come over and form a pit in front of the TV to get the full experience), simply leave a comment (or email me) with your name and email address and you’ll be in the running. I’ll announce a winner next Fridayish.
Buy the DVD version.
