Watch the White Stripes Perform from Icky Thump Records Via Webcast at 8pm Tonight

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.


The White Stripes and Warner Bros. Records have transformed our beloved Tower Records on Sunset into Icky Thump Records, named after the Stripes' new cd.

As we showed you in this photo essay on Monday, people stood in line for days to not just get the new album, but to also get to see Jack and Meg perform tonight inside the former record store. The first 200 people who bought cds Monday night at Icky Thump Records will see the band live, but you can watch the show on your computer.

All you do is go to the AT&T Blue Room at 8pm and you will get to see the whole show. Hopefully you have some good speakers hooked up to that mama jama.
