The Raconteurs at Bimbo’s presale tomorrow

The Raconteurs are sidestepping hype by releasing their new album Consolers Of The Lonely this Tuesday, a mere two weeks after finishing it. Now that’s what I call a rush release. No press reviews, no blog raves, no leaked tracks or videos, just straight up here it is and make up your own damn mind. Speaking of rush, they’ve also announced tour dates only days before tickets go on sale. They’ll be playing Bimbo’s 365 Club on April 23 and tickets go on presale tomorrow at 10 AM exclusively at ticketmaster.com. There’s a 2 ticket per person limit and you need a password to get in on the presale folks. Drop me an email and I’ll give you the skinny.

The rest of the tour dates:
4/20 Commodore Ballroom, Vancouver
4/21 Neumo’s, Seattle
4/22 Wonder Ballroom, Portland
4/25 Coachella Fest, Indio, CA
4/26 The Joint, Las Vegas

Quick note about the tunes

The mp3s on this blog are to give folks a little taste. Imagine they're those little pouches on the bag your Sunday paper comes in. You know, the one's with a packet containing just enough toothpaste to brush your teeth once or twice. They are left up for a limited time. If you find something you like support the artists by dragging your friends to their shows and/or buying their CDs/records/schwag. If you are the artist (or their label/representative) and don't want an mp3 on here, please email me (mike@nowhearthismusic.com) and I'll remove it posthaste.
