The merch of a man who should never be left in the sun, was all that remained of Jack White's secret show in Boyle Heights on a boiling Friday afternoon.

While visiting East L.A., KPCC spotted the impossible to miss, institutional yellow, traveling Third Man Records store parked behind a serious gate and decided to see what we'd missed at Mariachi Square.

A woman wrapping cable on the outdoor stage estimated about 150-200 people had appeared for the 20 minute "B Show" tweeted about by White's Three Man Records about an hour earlier.
