"The White Stripes first-ever performance in Madison was a windy Thursday night in a college town where it appeared most of the students had already left for spring break. The gig at O'Cayz was the band's first after the completion of their sophomore album, the "De Stijl" cover photos taken a mere two days earlier. While still three months before its release, March 16th is, essentially, the first show of the "De Stijl" tour cycle. The band does four songs off the album (some with the intro of "from our new album that's coming out"), all of which they'd been playing live for months already."

Kevin from Mistreaters and Rebecca Bialek were instrumental in them coming to O’Cayz. I recall they played Party In The Park after that, maybe 2001?
The Mad City show would have been great. I used to party there in the late 80’s and still have my Fuckum Bucky shirt. 18 was the drinking age for a bit and you were grandfathered in at the 21 age limit if you were married to someone 21.
I was still in 8th grade living a mere 60 miles away from Madison.
They never came back through Madison after 2002 but I caught them in Milwaukee in 2005.
Saw them in Milwaukee— second show at Cactus Club (Not the one with Mistreaters, the one where Men From Mars opened for them, my roommate at the time’s band which I did the cover art for their record.). Amazing show! All my friends at the time were there
Is anyone else curious why they insist on releasing shows from 2000 and never mixing it up with stuff from other tours and eras. Like throw in some 2005 Get Behind Me Satan shows or 2003 or something else from 2007 besides the last show. Am I crazy or do we not need another De Stijl era show for a while?
2020 was shite. Make 2021 great. TOUR.
Shocking it was that serious.
Wish I could have seen this
I was there! So miss that place
There was probably 50 people there. And I was one of them.
