NPR is a great place to hear live music – especially from bands that aren’t coming to Cleveland any time soon (which, when you think about it, is roughly half the bands on the road these days). Two weeks ago, NPR’s website posted a sizzling concert by the Black Keys
It just added a great set by the Raconteurs, which was recorded at Washington, DC’s 9:30 Club last night
. The 90-minute show includes lots of songs from the band’s new Consolers of the Lonely
CD, with Jack White (and his guitar) in full freak-out mode. Added bonus: Drummer Patrick Keeler can actually keep time! --Michael Gallucci
