Trailer: ‘Black Cab Sessions’ to Tour US Cities, Visit Jack White


If the idea of a Daytrotter-style acoustic session in the back of a London taxi sounds like your idea of a good time, then you’re probably already familiar with The Black Cab Sessions. This British-based web video series has taken an unlikely idea and turned it into a hit, recording 99 episodes since May 2007 and featuring artists like Fleet Foxes, Grizzly Bear, Brian Wilson, and Jens Lekman (who performed, of course, “Black Cab”). In fact, the concept’s been such a success that a TV show is in the works, and it involves the series coming to the US. They’re bringing the taxi to tour Nashville, New Orleans, NYC and various other locations, and artists scheduled to perform include Kyp Malone, Lambchop, and Jack White. It looks way cool — check out the trailer after the jump.
