You Can Now Stream the White Stripes' First-Ever Show
The recording was initially captured 20 years ago today
Published Jul 14, 2017While the White Stripes recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of their Icky Thump album, Jack and Meg White are now looking even further back in time. In fact, today (July 14) they've shared their first-ever White Stripes performance.
The show took place during an open mic at Detroit's Gold Dollar on Bastille Day 1997 — exactly 20 years ago today. The recording was initially unearthed as a 7-inch that came as part of a Third Man Vault Package, but you can now stream it below in full.
Coming under the title of Bastille Day - Single, the release contains just four tracks — "St. James Infirmary," "Jimmy the Exploder" and "Love Potion #9" — but if you're wanting to brush up on your White Stripes history, you can do so below.
