Join our celebration of rock gods Jack and Meg White as Liverpool and Purple Revolver plays host to an exclusive screening of the White Stripes’ film Under Great White Northern Lights.

The movie captures the magic and pays tribute to the power and greatness of their unique concert style.

There’s many candy-striped sweet scenes including the couple chatting with and playing for Inuit elders in Iqualit, Canada feasting on raw caribou meat.

Also Jack proudly sporting tartan kilts in Nova Scotia and a charming sequence editing together impromptu daytime gigs, which they put on at every location – a flour mill in London, Ontario, a bowling alley in Saskatoon, a school bus in Winnipeg.

During Emmett Malloy’s documentary Jack explains the band’s success is largely down to their deliberate choice to make things more difficult as their career progressed.

Insisting to still use the same guitars, with their tendency to lose tuning; placing the organ a bit further away so he has to struggle to reach it and not having replacement plectrums in easy reach.

Purple Revolver invite you to the screening of Under Great White Northern Lights at Parr Street Studio 2 on Wednesday, April, 28. Doors 7.30pm.

Tickets are on sale at £3 each via http://www.wegottickets.com/event/78062 and on the door.

Come eat popcorn, get into the De Stijl dress code – come dressed in your red, white and black finery, while you quench your thirst with a special White Stripes themed bar menu.

The after show party features White Stripes DJ and live set by Liverpool band Apple Cannon

Watch out for special ticket giveaways at hidden points around the city and with copies of new music fanzine :uber, which hits the streets mid-April.
