2 shows in Jackson tonight ! @ smaller venue too
My wife was in line around 10:30 but still with a good shot of getting a wristband until people started cutting in line ahead. She missed by about 30. Cheaters!
Maybe he'll like Boise so much he'll consider staying on for a few nights!
Heartbroken that I didn't know about this! I would have been there at 6:30 too.
I am SO happy for these people! Seeing Jack White in a really small setting like the Egyptian is a gift of grace.
Super fair to the people who have to work...
We are excited to have the Boise Highlanders at Angell's Bar and Grill - Renato again this year. What a tradition. They are scheduled for 7:30 pm on Tuesday. See you then!
Thanks for making this event the weekly Staff Pick!
One small correction: Mark Doubleday is the band's "personal manager" (his words).--Ben Schultz
Eilen and Beek have taken on a fabulous band, Zoe Muth and the High Rollers for their first show! I wish I could be there in the physical, but know that I'm there with you all anyway. You have EXCELLENT taste in music! Best wishes!
Pengilly's is a fabulous bar with good music most nights. The band pictured above is one of those. a.k.a. Belle is a unique group, full of raw energy, talent and enormous charisma. There's no one like them.
Way to mention the local bands that played. Thanks BW!
Awesome article Ben, thank you a ton for the mention!

Awesome story, and you can listen to some of the stations mentioned here:

The Crux Radio:
The disappointment in what owners Mitch and Christine have done to the original "Red Room" is bottomless. They transformed the iconic and much adored shotgun bar on Main Street into an unfathomable parade of insufferable pretentiousness with a resounding lack of foresight, all in an attempt to expand their insatiable quest for a lucrative enterprise in an industry they know next to nothing about. The mark they have left on their patrons, the bands they've hosted, and the employees that they've shown little regard for, is unsavory at best.
So congratulations Mitch, for destroying a place that many fondly called home and would have gladly continued despite the ownership change. Your kamikaze business strategies are not what this city needs or wants. Before you attempt to capture another market and bury it in the ground with you, reflect on this experience and realize that the impact that you have is widespread, and in your case, severely damaging to your clientele and the individuals under your employ. These are lives and experiences, and you are not enriching either.
Edit: Replace 'departure' with 'firing'.
A "must see" performance!
