We didn't know how lucky we had it when the White Stripes came to Hollywood last month and took over the location formerly known as Tower Sunset and turned it into Icky Thump Records.

OK, yes we did.

But we had no idea how much more White Stripes love we were going to get compared to the other parts of North America in regards to these "secret shows". For example on their tour across Canada, Jack and Meg played a secret show in a moving bus - which is fine if you're one of the few dozen people in the bus, but for the rest of the town, not so much.

Now Stereogum is reporting that the White Stripes have completed probably the greatest secret show spectacle of all times - a one-note "concert" to conclude a tour across every province and territory in Canada.

As cool as that is, we're sorta glad we got a full show here in LA.
