June of 2001 would find The White Stripes playing three NYC gigs in as many nights, and the sense of impending greatness felt all but predetermined. The appearance of the likes of Kate Hudson, Chris Robinson, Jon Spencer, Vincent Gallo and PJ Harvey in the crowds at these gigs seemingly confirmed that. The recording here from June 17th (night two) at the Bowery Ballroom is a straight knockout...nary an errant move to distract from the supernova captured on tape, all inside a room that was clearly packed beyond its legal limit of 575 patrons. Twenty years to the day since its recording feels like as perfect a time as ever to share this corker with the world.

Just awesome talented true musicians that went together like jelly and ice-cream ....

Funny that I randomly pulled this and De Stijl up on spotify yesterday. I miss this awesome group.

I love how rough and raw their first two albums were.

Blew me away back in the day; influenced my life in a great way. Thank you!

STORY TIME My uncle lent me a dvd of the white stripes under the Blackpool lights, I was about 11, (I'm now 29) I put it on before I fell asleep every night, I kept waking up to the same song, the bo weevil one at the end, after a month of waking up to the same song, It made me want to learn guitar. If anybody asks me about guitar, I make sure to tell them I got into Guitar because of jack white, every single white stripes song, to 99% of the raconteurs, but then went to british indi and now I'm into bluegrass like billy strings

I’m getting my Apple Blossom tattoo finished next month ❀️

It’s also 14 years since the last gig on UK soil. I was lucky enough to go to rivoli ballroom and Hyde park: www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.4386268713&type=3

Their best album in my opinion.

Well I fought piranhas, and I fought the cold…

Great album. I Fought Pirhanas is still a favorite.

CLASSIC. 3 more years till the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame, for what that's worth. They need White Stripes more than White Stripes need them but hopefully we'll get a reunion then.

At the time this came out, I didn't realize how rare it would be for a record to sound this perfect with so few instruments.

Raw and bluesy. Great album πŸ’Ώ

Drove by that fire station where the pictures for the album were taken, earlier today.

Now I FEEL really old! Love this vinyl.

Such a great album!! Thank You 🍻❀️

I love the white stripes my favorite band!!

Such an amazing album

Still a favorite.

love'seven nation army'

Hey Jack give Meg a call, time for some new music maybe?

THIS WAS in constant rotation as soon as I got a copy.

Banger of an album, doesn't quit

That was the day after I turned 18. Those days were mighty different.

By far the best album too.

They look like Mom just told them to finish their chores.

I really need to know when Jack White is going to tour the Southeastern states? Need a fix of his great music!

Looks like teen angst, lol Great album ❀️🀍

Great shot! I just listened through their whole catalog again. Still incredible. It was prep for my latest podcast episode. youtu.be/m15FpuJuFGU

That's the picture I had taped in my locker all through high school <3

This actor always reminded me of Jack

I jammed that album from Texas to Michigan and back again!

I'm listening to Elephant right now!!! 😍😍

I would be very happy if this group would reunite, but we all know it is not going to happen.

There’s some happy kids. Incredibly talent but, oh my god you’re making me feel miserable Jack and Meg...

That one year in 2018 when my Arkansan self saw you in Memphis in May on Beale Street and a month later in Paris was special. Try Fayetteville/Northwest Arkansas out sometime please!

Red and white was a great choice

I feel the one on the right. Please either shoot me or let me go. I'd be no good in a kidnapping situation. “Get in or I'll shoot you!” “Go for it. Just try to make sure it's fatal. I'm going to be pissed if I survive.”

I can’t wait for this Vault Package! WBC XX is gonna be radical!

Incredible album

They don’t make bands like that anymore

Look how young Jack White looks is in this picture...It feels just like yesterday...

Also known as "the slouching years."

When times were amazing!

Best band ever?? Maybe. 🀟🀟🀟🀟

My kid always has that expression on his face.

His lips though... She should have on some lip gloss at least for contrast

One of my biggest regrets is that I never saw them play live.

Looks like they just heard a really lame joke
