Jack White, 8:15 p.m. Sun. at Red Bull Soundstage

I waited more than an hour in a never-ending line to try to get into Jack White's super-crowded show at a bar in Austin during SXSW, to no avail. Everyone who made it in said it was one of the best shows they had ever seen, and I believe them. The new "Blunderbuss" is unquestionably one of the best albums of the year, and if Jack White is known for one thing (OK, aside from all of the eccentricity stuff), it's his killer live skills. It's entirely possible Jack may invite some special guests to perform with him, but please don't hold out hope for a Meg White/White Stripes reunion. Let it go already, dude. - Jessica Galliart
