Before his sold-out concert tonight at Red Rocks,
Jack White played a last-minute outdoor show this afternoon outside
Isdajo Automotive on West Colfax Avenue. The show was announced via the Third Man Records Twitter account just
30 minutes before the first song, then Jack played a 20-minute impromptu concert for about 300 fans on the sizzling pavement near the service station.
White played a
four-song set of bluesy garage rock, which began with the White Stripes'
"Black Math" and ended with "Ball and Biscuit." Service station
owner Manuel Bonilla said that members of White's crew had stopped in
Isdajo Automotive two hours earlier asking permission to put on the
"They told me it was going to be a band," Bonilla said. "They didn't mention any names."
