White Stripes Mock Canadians With One-Note Show

mojo-photo-whitestripes3.jpg Well, the Canadians seemed pretty happy about it, actually. The White Stripes had been performing at odd venues all over Canada in a quest to play in every province and territory in our great northern neighbor; yesterday, realizing that they were one province (Newfoundland) away from achieving this goal, and that “playing a show” would really only require them to play a single note, they did exactly that. Here’s video from the one-note show, yesterday in St. John’s, Newfoundland:

Yes, the audience is chanting “One more note!” But don’t worry about the poor Newfoundlandians: the Stripes did a full two-hour gig for ’em later that night. Check Stereogum for some awesome pictures of the roadies tuning up the gear before the one-note performance, go here for upcoming US dates.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
