Watch “Death Letter” From The White Stripes’ “Northern Lights”

March 3rd, 2010 by Rolling Stone Leave a reply »

The White Stripes’ concert film Under Great White Northern Lights is currently blowing out speakers in cinemas all over this country and Canada, and Rolling Stone has another taste of the pandemonium that’s in store for lucky filmgoers with a screenings in their ‘hoods. Watch Jack White absolutely thrash his guitar during a cover of Son House’s “Death Letter,” just one of nearly 30 tracks that will feature in the White Stripes’ doc about their odd 2007 tour of Canada, a trek that featured impromptu performances on fishing boats, public buses and elementary school classrooms.

Relive the tour with our White Stripes’ Canadian Adventure photo gallery.

In addition to the theatrical dates below, the White Stripes are also inviting their fans to host their own screenings on March 16th, which the band has dubbed “White Stripes Day.” People who apply to host a screening will receive a kit featuring a DVD of UGWNL, popcorn and, of course, peppermint swirl candy. So far, screenings range from 400-seat theaters to private living room settings. If you want to host your own White Stripes party or watch the film’s trailer, head over to the official site (applications are due by March 10th). Otherwise, see Under Great White North Lights on the big screen at one of the fine movie houses below.
