Last Night: The Dead Weather Diss Brooklyn Vegan, Invite Prospect Park to Kill a Cow With Them


Jack White plays drums in the Dead Weather, but that didn’t stop the White Stripes frontman from making his way to the microphone at some point during his band’s set in Prospect Park last night and asking: “You probably read Brooklyn Vegan too, right?” He went on to make all the non-vegans in the audience an offer: “Let’s kill a cow together!” Local bonafides thus established, White, his dynamic partner, Alison Mosshart, and the rest of the esteemed power quartet blitzed the crowd with the gothy, witchy blues for which the Dead Weather are so adored. They wore all black, of course. Intrepid photographer Rebecca Smeyne was there; her photos of the action are below.
