The Dead Weather at Celebrate Brooklyn! Prospect Park, 8/3

After name-checking star tattoos and Brooklyn Vegan, and calling spitting, skulking frontwoman Alison Mosshart "the whitest person ever," Jack White put down his bottle of Veuve Clicquot and settled behind the drums for a typically furious set from The Dead Weather Tuesday night in Prospect Park. Ripping through tracks from their debut album Horehound and finishing with a flurry of bass-heavy riffs from May's Sea of Cowards, the foursome thundered along with White's snapping drumming, Jack Lawrence's lean rhythms and squealing guitar solos from Dean Fertita on songs like "I Cut Like a Buffalo" and "Die by the Drop." By the time White teased the crowd during the encore that Mosshart had commented on their lack of ebullience, the limp headbobbers had already slouched home, leaving The Dead Weather to rustle some Brooklyn storms with a final assault of their primordial, slashed-edge Gothic blues rock. - jm
