The band that pissed off Jack White will be headlining Milwaukee’s Summer Soulstice Festival on Saturday. Von Bondies singer/guitarist Jason Stollsteimer’s famous altercation with the Stripes’ frontman back in 2003 might have gotten the band more fame than his music, but the Detroit foursome’s single “C’mon C’mon” gave the power chord loving garage group enough staying power since its release in 2004 to gain a solid fan base. Their newly-made lineup and five-years-in-the-making, characteristically raucous new release Love, Hate and Then There’s You shows the band hasn’t been quite as reclusive as the press would have it. They make the trip across the pond of Michigan to tear up North Avenue’s summer block party at the West stage in a battle for the time slots with Milwaukee’s pop darlings Fever Marlene who position themselves on the East stage. Who would win in a bar brawl?
