Four major acts stopped by Later… with Jools Holland earlier this week and we have footage to share of all the fun that was had. Jack White, Norah Jones, Alabama Shakes and Grimes each took turns performing on stage before a live BBC studio audience. Had this show occurred in 1992 when Later debuted, if you weren’t there in person to see it you would have been screwed, but thanks to Al Gore we now have global warming and the Internet, which affords us the luxury of watching all this great footage a few days later in America. Get to watching starting with Jack White on the next page.
