One of the more high profile of these shows occurred in a parking lot, where the Third Man Records Rolling Record Store was parked as label founder Jack White emerged from inside to the delight of the crowd.

The pop-up performance served not only to help christen the debut of  his mobile record store, but also to introduce his latest signing,  Seasick Steve. Before turning things over to 60-year-old blues singer, White strapped on a guitar for an all too brief, two-song performance that included the White Stripes’ Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground as well a tribute to one of Texas’ native sons, Buddy Holly, with a take on Not Fade Away.
