Raconteurs Kick Off Tour, Wear Whatever Colors They Want


The Raconteurs (i.e. Jack White with an actual band) kick off their tour esta noche in Nashville. Go watch them play. In case you haven't seen it, that's the video for "Salute Your Solution" up above -- it's the first single off their suddenly-dropped Consolers of the Lonely album.

Also, we’re into the band's totally lo-fi, Logo-era website. (Websites are places where you can find virtual information that you used to have to look for in zines.)

Dates -- some with the Black Lips and the Fiery Furnaces, who we also like -- after the jump.
