Dig Out The White Stripes’ Groovy Debut TV Gig Strutting On Detroit Public TV's "Backstage Pass"!

Dig out The White Stripes’ debut TV gig strutting on Detroit public TV's "Backstage Pass"!

"Last week, the White Stripes shared vintage footage from a show in Montana as part of the rollout for the 20th anniversary of De Stijl. In the latest clip, the band went back to 2000, but in a different way.

As part of the celebration, the band unearthed a gem of a performance from Backstage Pass, a program on Detroit public access TV. The May 28, 2000 performance also happened to the band’s first on TV.

On it, they performed “Apple Blossom” & “Death Letter” weeks ahead of De Stijl’s release. The host incredulously says that “the CD” “was recorded in Jack’s living room.”

Third Man Records is putting out a big vault package to honor De Stijl, including a hardcover case, an archival booklet filled with previously unseen photos, flyers and more, a white LP and a red LP full of previously unreleased recordings and covers, and a DVD containing two performances from the peak of that era.

Check out the performance below." - Spin.com
