The Dead Weather are pretty awesome
Jack White of the White Stripes decides to put together a new band. He calls them The Dead Weather and they choose to open their U.S. tour in Louisville. Of course they do; it's the rock and roll capital of the North Central Kentucky/Southern Indiana area! So when you're in this music mecca, where to play? Where to showcase your new rock band? Why, at a recently-shuttered country line dancing bar, of course.

The Dead Weather played at the former Coyote's at the former City Block entertainment complex. City Block was a local douche/jackass gathering place that was recently put out of business by 4th Street Live!, a douche/jackass gathering place owned and operated by out of towners. I'm a firm believer that our douche/jackass dollars should stay local, but our mayor doesn't get any kickbacks when that happens, so City Block was ultimately doomed.

Someone taped one of their performances the other night, in surprisingly high quality. If you're so inclined, check it out here. If not, I don't know if I like you anymore.

In the video you can clearly see their lead singer blatantly disregard our local anti-smoking ordinances. LONG LIVE ROCK AND ROLL

Why is it that Jack White can put together, at last count, approximately 115 great bands, and all of these tv talent shows can't find one of them?

Was the 4th Street Live! created by the same out-of-towner douschebags that created Kansas City Live! here? Ugh...that place is a hole of jackass/douschebaggery.

While this is hardly the point of your post, I would like to complain that the Twisted Kilts are offensive to me.
