THE Story Tellers…

rac.jpeg Everyday the boss man asks, “What is THE local entertainment story of the day?” On Fridays, I tend to look ahead at what’s happening over the weekend. There are some great shows this weekend, but I can’t seem to get over The Raconteurs at City Hall!

The band, featuring Jack White from the White Stripes is one of my favorites! Apparently others agree…the show is already sold out in the Warehouse that holds 1,500 people!

So…do you know what the heck Raconteur means? By definition, Raconteur is one who tells stories and anecdotes with skill and wit. Uh-huh…this remains so true for these guys! Their wicked guitar sounds could stand alone as stories, but their lyrics seal the deal!

Here’s a prime example from their website:
“REMEMBER A TIME WHEN ALL WAS NOT FINE AND UP FROM THE DINGY SEWERS CAME FOUR LOUSY THIEVES WHO FLOURISHED LIKE TREES, BEHOLD THE RACONTEURS…”

I can’t wait and running into Jack White around town hasn’t killed any of the excitement for me!

Other good shows this weekend- Saturday night How I Became The Bomb will play at Mercy Lounge and Be Your Own Pet will rock out The End!

What do you think the entertainment story of the day is?
