"There's not enough oxygen here," Jack White said about half an hour into his set last night at Red Rocks. "I got to keep telling my lungs to breathe, and I haven't talked to my lungs like this in a long time. We're going to make it." Despite the lack of oxygen, it didn't seem to slow down White or his six-piece, all-female band, the Peacocks, who dug into material with a fervor from White's other bands and most of his solo effort, Blunderbuss, over the course of his hour and forty-five minute set.
