When Alison Mosshart started performing with White Stripe and supergroup-builder Jack White in The Dead Weather, I worried it would be the last of The Kills.

When Alison Mosshart started performing with White Stripe and supergroup-builder Jack White in The Dead Weather, I worried it would be the last of The Kills.

The bluesy Weather was OK, but I much prefer the slinky style of The Kills. It just sounds like a soundtrack for dirty sex.

Well, I got my wish. Not only did The Kills return with a killer new album ("Blood Pressures"), but Mosshart and guitarist Jamie Hince will be playing the Newport this Saturday, one night after they appear at Lollapalooza in Chicago.

Don't show up late. The show is opened by the gloriously noisy New York shoegaze band A Place to Bury Strangers.
