I guess I'd need to know more about how it worked in practise but that still sounds like a bad idea.

Do you have to go to the foyer to have your pouch unlocked? That sounds really inconvenient for you and everyone around you.

How would a parent know if their partner or babysitter's texted them, how would you feel the vibration of the phone or notice the text message?

Do you have to just walk out to have it unlocked five times throughout the show, just in case?

It's dumb. Yeah, some people are jerks with their phones but this is a draconian way of managing it.

I think it's automatic. You feel the phone vibrate (or you see the notification), so you walk off to the designated area where it automatically unlocks.

I think the pouch is see-through, so you can see your screen. And it's fitted to a phone's dimensions. It's not like a ziploc bag.

I'd think this was really idiotic no matter who did it but there definitely is a schadenfreude-like element of satisfaction in it being Jack White.

I used to go to concerts where nobody at all, at all, had a cell phone. And nobody died because of it.

I swear to God, True story

The other night Neko had a really strict no camera/photo policy. They were kicking people out. It made the show very enjoyable without all those phones out

His solo stuff seems pretty repetitive to me.

This is wrong. I just saw a video demo. Not see-through.

Jack White is annoying as hell but I am honestly fine with this measure. I’m more surprised he isn’t forcing everyone to wear hats.

there are a few songs I dig, but overall, i much more dig WS, Raconteurs, and even the Dead Weather.

i feel like he benefits from working within the confines of other musicians. when he's on his own, he seems to get lost in his own creativity. being in a band kind of reigns him in, gives him some structure, and lets him explore within those boundaries.

I still love his Blunderbuss record, though. Solid album. But I think his cover of Love is Blindness is probably the last thing he did that really captured me and blew me away.

Who does he think he is charging $30 more than what I just paid for a David Byrne ticket? If this wasn’t so close to that show I’d maybe consider going.

Wow I hadn't even looked at his ticket prices. Not considering going bc the venue he's playing in Seattle is a POS and kills the vibe of a show, but lol that's insane

Well, I mean, he's far more... never mind.
