The Raconteurs 

When: Wed., April 23, 8 p.m. 2008
Price: $25

Ever the contrarian, Jack White III and his posse known as theRaconteurs deigned to release the quartet's sophomore bow Consolers of the Lonely on all formats simultaneously on the same day: to retail, press, and radio alike. While White is as equal a member of the Raconteurs the way David Bowie was in Tin Machine, it's clear who is riding herd on this project. Even though power-pop maven Brendan Benson is credited with splitting singing and songwriting duties, the psycho-blues stomp and vintage '70s-era boogie infusing these songs makes this a more fully realized version of the White Stripes with a better rhythm section. Catch them on Wednesday, April 23at Bimbo's 365 Club (1025 Columbus Ave., San Francisco), with North Carolina psychedelic rockers Birds of Avalon opening the show. 8 p.m., $25.
