Austin City Limits resumed its 38th season over the weekend with an excellent hour-long performance from Jack White. Once again alternating between his all-male and all-female backing bands — The Buzzards and The Peacocks, respectively — White ripped through a career-spanning set which included tracks from last year’s Blunderbuss, highlights from each of his previous bands (The White Stripes, The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather), and Blind Willie Johnson and Hank Williams covers. Donning the same badass powder-blue suit he wore in the video for ‘I’m Shakin’‘ (as well as during the recent AMEX Unstaged show), White was in terrific form throughout, and now more than ever I wish that he would bring this tour to New Zealand.
