Watch Daphne Guinness Sing Jefferson Airplane’s ‘White Rabbit’ at Arlene’s Grocery

Daphne Guinness has been tweeting up a storm about her performance at Arlene’s Grocery on the Lower East Side this weekend, and now we have a video of her rendition of Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit” with the band Element 4. She’s quite good! According to her Twitter feed, the band simply called her to ask if she’d perform with them, and she said yes. Better yet, she apparently plans to do more of this in the future. Here’s a roundup of her tweets about the experience.

May 13, 5:12 AM: “Timing plays an enormous role. Common sense isn’t very common. Got the T shirt I’m afraid!” [Ed. note: Twitpic of said t-shirt, please?]
May 13, 5:44 PM: “I am normally ill with nerves, but it was great, the band was great, to gel with a band in 24 hrs is amazing.”
May 14, 3:59 PM: “It is the real me. It is not a phase, just something I never revealed before.” 
May 14, 8:29 PM: “It was VERY impromptu, sang 4 songs, Never did that before. Life is full of surprises x”
May 14, 8:41 PM: “I wish I had practiced more than once!” 
May 14, 8:47 PM: “It really was pretty insane, I am used to classical!” 
May 14, 8:48 PM: “This is a small beginning! rock should be impromptu and not overproduced. got to get back to basics!”
