    Default White Stripes secret shows

    So I guess the white stripes have been playing afternoon shows in all of the canadian stops so far..today it was a bowling alley where they played for 15 minutes and jack rolled a frame for the big finale. they have also played in a portable classroom for like 15 people, a youth center, a park, and a few other random places. i believe one of the tour/band managers posts the info on the secret shows on a white stripes forum just a couple hours before showtime. what a cool thing to do for their fans!

    They will be playing at my apartment in LA before the Forum gig, and then at my parent's house before the Berkeley gig. Let me know if you want to be on the guestlist.

    lolz.

    Yeah, I read about it after their Vancouver show. They played a youth centre by a beach. There were apparently 30 or so people there. And they played a good 40 minute set too. I wish I could gone to that. The show was awesome anywhich way.

    Amoeba would be awesome, but it'd be crowded as hell.

    That wouldnt be so ''secret'' now would it? They played Icky Thump Records, why do another record store if these things are supposed to be insanely low key? Still think the Hollywood Park Casino would rule

    Well if it went unannounced it would be. I agree it would be less low key than these Canadian shows, but i still think it would be cool. This reminds me of when beck did a surprise acoustic set in a little tacqueria (sp?) in san francisco a few years back. Wish I could have seen that.

    this is getting so spread around now that i doubt it will continue into the US.

    but that's ok. it's fun just reading about it. and canadians probably feel left out on tours and stuff a lot, so good for them.

    the show was announced late, so no reports on how it was yet. most of the people that went probably went directly to the venue. can't wait to hear about what happened..

    Maybe they play outside the doughnut shop on the way to the forum. You know with the huge doughnut on top of it?

    whitestripes.net, then go into the forum and look in the general discussion thread, look for a post by subpopfan1...need to be vigilant, though, sometimes the shows are announced only a couple hours beforehand.

    They came here the last two tours, and they ARE being played on the radio, so I figure they'll get around to us sometime. We took our kids to see them at the Dodge in 2005. I'm wearing my white stripes shirt today, in fact, because it has some patriotic colors and all that.

    (I used to wear my one of my british flag shirts on July 4th, but I don't feel like being glared at today)
