THE DEAD WEATHER: A HYENA PACK HUNT


The Dead Weather held every breath of the audience last Friday.
The band that was born thanks to a jam session between Alison Mosshart (The Kills), guitar player Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age), bassist Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs and The Greenhornes) and vocalist, guitarist and drummer, Jack White (The White Stripes y The Raconteurs), performed at it's best.
Aside from their exquisite music, their energy was tight and strong, not to say aggressive. Their perfect domain of climax and their movements and strenght on stage reminded me of the way hyenas hunt.
They moved as a pack, playing every note at it's best, which made their blues-punk high energy rock sound tight and ensembeled where no one is more important than the other, creating a pack that turned the audience into their defenseless prey.

That said here are some pictures and videos.
