Today, a select number of independent record stores around the world are hosting advance listening parties for the new Jack White album, Boarding House Reach. Along with shops in Australia, Estonia, France, Japan, Portugal and Italy (among numerous other countries), Northside's Shake It Records will spin the LP today at noon. The album officially releases March 23.
Those attending today's event will receive a Jack White button and have the chance to win an exclusive single-sided tri-color 7-inch of White’s new single "Over and Over and Over" and other prizes.
