Steady As She Goes

Tonight I saw the Raconteurs perform live. Those not familiar with who they are, they are aband comprised of Jack White from the White Stripes, Brenden Benson (a semi-famous solo artist) and half of a band called the Greenhornes. I liked their music on the CD but all I can say is that it KICKED ASS hearing them live. It was one of the best shows I've seen in a while,up on my list with my Franz Ferdinand experience. You all missed out by not being there (especially you Norm).

As a side note during the intermission between opening band Dr. Dog (which were pretty good and had one guy that was like Neil Young and one guy that was like Joe Cocker), this pretty chick started talking to me. She was talking to me about all these great shows she went to and how she drove all teh way from Vermont just to see this one. She was eyeing me a bit before the show started and I will admit I got a bit excited when she decided to strike conversation with me. That is until I found out she was only 16:
Her - "Yeah so my school is a lot smaller than the ones here so it's always fun coming to such a big city"
Me - "So you go to a community college or university"
Her - "No I"m in high school"

If The Raconteurs ever release a live CD I suggest you get it.

HAHAHA - indeed, just like Franz Ferndinand; just remember though: 16 is legal.

'Nuff said.
