White Stripes beat the Fire Engines

In the post punk era there were a bunch of good bands from Scotland. I liked the Fire Engines a lot and once bonded over them with a cute girl from St Albans. They were famous for playing 15 minute sets. In general I think short sets are a great idea. When I rule the world, support acts will be limited to 20 minutes each.

On their tour of Canada the White Stripes are playing secret short shows in places like youth clubs. You can watch the shows on YouTube but they are all being filmed for a dvd so you could just wait. With time running out they wanted to play in every province and territory in Canada and the result was this short set that they played in St Johns, Newfoundland. The crowd knew what was happening which is why they aren't throwing things.
