First take: The Dead Weather at 9:30 Club
By Chris Richards
Of course it started with a drum fill -- a demonstrative rumble that rivaled the thunderclaps that peeled across Washington skies earlier that evening. It sounded like thunkity-thunkity-thwack, but it screamed, "Look at me, look at me, look at me!"
That's because the drummer was Jack White, the eccentric White Stripes frontman, moonlighting behind the drums in his auxiliary group, the Dead Weather.
The foursome kicked off its summer tour at the 9:30 Club in righteous form Tuesday, but with White rarely ceding the spotlight to his band mates: guitarist/keyboardist Dean Fertita, bassist Jack Lawrence and frontwoman Alison Mosshart.
Give a peacock some drum sticks, and you still have a peacock. Good thing this peacock knows how to make such intoxicating rock-n-roll.
