The Mars Volta

Apologies to fans of the band, because this isn't really about them at all.

Side-of-stage viewing on the Green stage isn't ideal, so before long we sifted around the barrier and watched from out front. We saw the first song or two before my companion spotted Jack White watching from side of stage. You guessed it - heart-in-mouth moment number two. We returned to the backstage area, and it's true, alongside one of his black-suit, red-shirted entourage, Mr White himself is checking out the Mars Volta from the rear of the stage. He has a cane! He is so pale! He turns around and our eyes meet!

That's pretty much the entire story. A bit later, I glanced in his direction and saw that he was gone. I watched more of the Mars Volta, and they were way cool. Then we went to see Iggy and the Stooges.
