Jack White is easily one of the most important artists in recent rock history. His legend was born with The White Stripes, the highly influential alt-blues/rock duo that ran from 1997 to 2011, and strengthened through his work with The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather. The diversely talented musician, who came in at No. 17 on Rolling Stone's famous list of the 100 greatest guitarists, is currently supporting his second solo outing, "Lazaretto," on tour. White performs Friday and Saturday at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. Show time is 8 p.m. and tickets are $49.50 (Saturday's show is sold out), www.ticketmaster.com.
