The White Stripes release 1999 live album to benefit Fair Fight Action

The duo have also re-shared a collection of their classic B-sides and 'Saturday Night Live' performances

The White Stripes have released a recording of a live show they played in 1999 to benefit the voter participation advocacy group Fair Fight Action.

Recorded during the duo’s show at the 40 Watt Club in Athens, Georgia on September 27, 1999, the 11-track live record was released by Jack White’s Third Man Records label yesterday (December 14).

Fans are able to purchase ‘Live At The 40 Watt (Benefitting Fair Fight)’ from now until December 20 over on Third Man’s Bandcamp page.


All proceeds from ‘Live At The 40 Watt (Benefitting Fair Fight)’ will go to Fair Fight Action, the Stacey Abrams-founded voter participation advocacy group, and their ongoing work to protect the rights of eligible voters in the upcoming Georgia runoff elections.
