The White Stripes release career bookend, starring Moorhead

​The White Stripes played their final show nearly four years ago, on July 31, 2007 in Southaven, Mississippi, bidding adieu to a decade requited with rock and roll and giving every guitarist with furious intentions a little breathing room. Now, through his successful vinyl-centric label Third Man, Jack White is pressing that show and a couple other milestones to various forms of circularity. A final, official bookend to the Stripes' decade.

In addition to that final show pressed to vinyl, the package -- part of Third Man's quarterly subscription service, the Vault -- will also include a 7" of very early recordings and something that would be surprising if it weren't coming from the predictably left-of-field Jack White: a DVD of a show in Fargo/Moorhead at the now-demolished Ralph's Corner Bar back in 2000. Third Man's website says the package is meant to cross-sect the Stripes' career, and it seems like it just might.
