SHAKE, RATTLE, & ROLL
Shut out of Jack White’s packed Webster Hall gig last month? This week, the garage-rock star returns to New York for a two-night stand at the roomier Roseland Ballroom; what’s more, he does it with a new feather in his cap, as Blunderbuss, White’s deeply cranky solo debut, just became his first album to hit the top spot on the Billboard 200. Show up early either evening for an opening set by the Alabama Shakes, whose own roots-rock disc, Boys & Girls, recently snuck into the Top 10—proof that sometimes hype pays off.
