Live Performance: The Dead Weather, 'Hang You From The Heavens,' At The 2009 mtvU Woodie Awards

Well, this is just savage. In a performance that totally captures their swagger, attitude and charm, we have for you a clip of the The Dead Weather performing "Hang You From The Heavens," live at the 2009 mtvU Woodie Awards.

The Dead Weather seemed to come together quickly and out of nowhere this year. But you can clearly see and hear in this performance a band coming into its own; with Jack Lawrence's brutal bass riding over Jack White's primal beats, with Alison Mosshart at the eye of the storm summons thunder and lightning at center stage. It's beautifully brutal.

+ Watch the 2009 mtvU Woodies Friday, December 4, at 10 p.m. ET on mtvU, MTV, MTV2, and Palladia.
