The White Stripes‘ 2001 performance at the Detroit Institute of Arts museum is being released as a live album and concert film.
Live at the Detroit Institute of Arts will be available as a two-LP and DVD set as part of the latest installment in the Third Man Records Vault subscription service. The package also includes previously unseen photos from the performance, as well as a a custom gatefold jacket.
For a band known for playing unique venues, this particular White Stripes performance may have taken the cake. The show smashed the museum’s single-day attendance record, and found the overflowing crowd getting up close and personal with the artwork in a way for which the staff was not prepared. As one museum executive said of the show, “That was the best thing we’ve ever done. It was also the worst thing we’ve ever done.”
Luckily, as a press release says, “The only noticeable damage done on that evening was the ringing of eardrums.”
To obtain Live at the Detroit Institute of Arts for yourself, you need to sign up for the Third Man Vault before October 31. You can subscribe now via ThirdManStore.com.
