the raconteurs @ stubbs
the raconteurs played 2 night sold out shows at stubb’s last week. we chose saturday over the friday night show. not sure if this was wise…
first of all the downtown area was closed to traffic for the austin 30th annual old pecan street festival this made parking a joke but not impossible. as it turned out we arrived just as they were going on stage.
but second, the band was not really in love with the audience. you could tell, almost as if they were on stage for themselves- playing to only them.
but one has to overlook both minor disappointments when you heard them play. the piano ending to you don’t understand me… very mind-blowing.
as part of the audience, i loved them.
........and when it was over i could only wish i could make it all happen again....
