[Watch] Jack White & Conan O’Brien - “20 Flight Rock”

I'm pretty sure I wasn't the only one that was overly excited to see Jack White make an appearance on Conan's new show, not only 'cos he's one of the coolest people on the planet, but because nobody seemed to know what he was going to perform. I find there's a certain amount of mystery to Mr White and it's definitely a good thing. Could he take to the stage with Meg and announce the comeback of the White Stripes? Would he do something on his own and his acoustic guitar...whip out the electric and do a cover..Maybe Jack didn't truly know until the day? The White Stripes take to the stage without a set lists every night of the tour, so what's to say Jack doesn't do the same on his TV appearances?

 

When Jack did take to the stage he did so with Conan himself and the two of them played “20 Flight Rock”, which Conan recorded over last summer when hanging out at JW's studios. Now to me Jack White on an electric guitar is always going to cause palpitations and swooning. This performance didn't disappoint, with a swing feel and the standard Jack White maxing out a few tubes in his amp mid solo. You can watch the performance up top and as well as that check out the interview with Coco after the jump. Thanks to The Audio Perv once again for vids.

Jack White Writes Theme Song For Elvira's Movie Macabre

Nashville Scene is reporting that one of our favorite people in the world, Jack White is writing the theme song for the return of Movie Macabre (aka Elivra's Movie Macavbre), a TV show that ran from 1981-1983 that was alot like Mystery Science Theater 3000 before MST3K even existed.  

The show is due to air September 25th on syndicated stations across the U.S., according to Cassandra Peterson (via Fangoria), who stars as Elvira in the show.

The show actually sounds pretty cool! According to an interview she did with Mondo Celluloid, Peterson says all the movies that will be on the show have all been digitally remastered so the show will be in HD. She's brought on Gris Grimely, an artist who is known for his dark children's books to do the intro and Jackie White is contributing to the music of the show. Further into the interview she reveals that Jack did a song with The Black Belles (video for "What Can I Do?" above) and that will be the theme song for the show. Regarding the song, Peterson said,

"It’s kinda spooky and cool - you guys are gonna dig it, man. We’re gonna make a vinyl out of it. Day-Glo vinyl!"

DAY-GLO VINYL?!?!? COUNT US IN!!
