White Riot at Webster Hall

Jack gets filmic with his Blunderbuss

Webster Hall was, as befits a sponsored event headlined by one of the rock world's bigger names, pretty crowded, and the sight lines supplied by Oldman's take on events—which was streaming from well-placed screens hung around the balcony—transfixed a couple of my fellow concertgoers who were stuck behind either too many people or audience members who were too tall. Their fixations on the crystal-clear displays provided a marked (and likely unintentional) contrast to White's fetishistic view of the vinyl format and his on-record disdain for the way technology can detract from the experience of being in the same place as someone and vibing off them. That those people still appreciated White's sweat-drenched output, though, was probably what mattered in the end.
