    Savage. I was thoroughly impressed by the craft. The set was heavy on the new album and they were seven or eight songs in before playing anything off Broken ....

    I thoroughly recommend catching them on Friday ! They do need to get over themselves though with their 'no camera' rule.

    They were one of my must see bands this year, but unfortunately they conflict with another one of my must see acts (Aphex Twin), so I will have to skip them.

    0 interest in seeing Aphex myself so I was going to see Raconteurs regardless of going last night. Damn, I could have made $$$ by selling the tix as well.

    I'm actually really upset about missing Raconteurs...but missing Aphex just isn't an option. RDJ won't be around agian for a long long time and the Raconteurs will be.

    It is upsetting...however, that is my ONLY major conflict this weekend...so I can be happy about that ;-)

    Yes because some twat on drums and Jack on guitar are EXACTLY the same as Jack and 3 other (4 for the tour) excellent musicians.

    So she isn't the best drummer around...

    However, I like the Stripes a lot. Seen them live a few times and they put on a spectacular show. Can't imagine that The Raconteurs will be much better...

    no, shes not a twat because of her drumming (stripes are my favorite band), shes a twat for canceling the tour and putting a hold indefinetly

    positive side, we got a killer raconteurs record

    top yourself meg

    I'm soo bummed about missing the Raconteurs but I'm really thinking they'll be playing the local radio station's show this year because they were pimping the hell out of the new album so something is up and there is no way they don't do their own L.A. show.

    and you have heard the Consolers of the Lonely? I keep trying man, but it's like track 8 before I dig a song on that bullshit. I'm insisting the album sucks. Certainly worse than any White Stripes album. Now BBS is pretty tight and as good as if not better than most White Stripes album but insinst the new one is shit. Sophomore fucking slump. Just because Jack puts shit together in a few weeks doesn't mean the rest of the band is as capable because this was some bullshit rushed out backup plan when the Stripes tour fell apart and so far it's a FAIL IMO.
