The Raconteurs (easy Zack)

B.E. Jack White is the man. I thought he was awesome live with the White Stripes and I was blown away when I saw the Raconteurs last year at Lolla (even though I thought their first release, Broken Boy Soldier, was just OK).

Their newest album, Consolers For the Lonely, translates even better live then its predecessor. In “You Don’t Understand Me,” White gives up his battle ax in favor of the, perhaps, softer piano. However, there is nothing soft about Jack White. At points he went absolutely crazy, falling over during a particular solo.

After playing songs from Consolers for the first half of the show, The Raconteurs switched it up and played the fan favorite “Steady As She Goes” off of Broken Boy Soldier. The crowed loved the dueling guitar intro.

Things concluded with a killer encore: “Many Shades of Black,” then “My Baby’s on the Level,” followed by an amazing performance of “Salute Your Solution” that got the crowd singing and clapping along.

Overall, great show. Jack White never disappoints.

    Sick nasty post Blake. Made me jealous. If you spell my name Z-a-c-h again I’ll pretend I’m Jack White and you’re Jason Stollsteimer.
