Concert Review: Jack White in Toronto

Noah Love: We need more artists like Jack White and Morrissey. No, not temperamental megalomaniacs prone to having tantrums on stage every now and then. I’m talking about solo artists who embrace their entire catalog. Stephen Malkmus drives me crazy in this respect. His refusal to include Pavement songs in his solo sets is nonsensical at this point. If he’s willing to tour with Pavement, he obviously still holds some affinity with the music, so why not? Conversely, Morrissey drops numerous Smiths songs into his sets. And Jack White? Well, he has/had three bands and one solo record, and on Wednesday at the Sony Centre, songs from each and every one took a whirl in the spotlight. [Photos by David Leyes Photographer]

    As someone who’s going to be seeing Jack White and loves the Raconteurs, I’m gonna go ahead and find this positive.
