The Dead Weather.
I have been listening to them for a couple of weeks...
trying to decide I love it or...hate it.
The Dead Weather was formed in Nashville, Tennessee in 2009. With a chemical make up of Alison Mosshart (of The Kills and Discount), Jack White (of The White Stripes and The Raconteurs), Dean Fertita (of Queens of the Stone Age) and Jack Lawrence (of The Raconteurs and The Greenhornes). The Dead Weather stepped into the public's eye on March 11, 2009 at the opening of Third Man Records' Nashville headquarters. The band performed and released their debut single "Hang You from the Heavens".

Designers, Mike and Dan, of Aesthetic Apparatus in Minneapolis, pretty much just make art posters for bands...saaaaa-weet (as my dad would say) jobs man.  They look like the lost members of Weezer and I'm not mad at it.  They designed the above poster for The Dead Weather's National and Canadian tour.  Its one of my favorite of  all the bands they've done (Grizzly Bear, The Submarines, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Sparklehorse, etc.).
Look for it...they're coming to a venue near you.

In fact...
If you live in or around the L.A. area they're playing at the Wiltern tonight (my ALL-TIME favorite venue) and The Myan tomorrow night.
The tickets are a bit pricey...$32 + fees
I plan on seeing them at Street Scene in San Diego (I think it means a whale's vagina).  These tickets are waaaaay more expensive, but they have an insane line-up...I mean, I'm going to see Busta Rhymes...whaaaaat?
Other bands I'm excited about...
Thievery Corporation, Modest Mouse, Girl Talk, Band of Horses, M.I.A, Devendra Banhart (why not?), Crocodiles, and Black Eyed Peas...gonna get that boom already.
I'll be sure to have some street style photos fo' dat ass this week.

I just love this.
Verdict: Love Them.
