The photos in this post are from The Raconteurs April 7th NYC show at Irving Plaza. I'm not a huge Brendan Benson fan, but I thought it was a quality rock show. The general crowd reaction after the show was mixed good and 'eh'. Decide for yourself - Amazon is streaming video from the show. The Modern Age has a review and pictures from the show. MTV is streaming the album.

On Thursday 5/18 (10PM) the band will play an "exclusive NYC performance" at Tower Records (4th & Broadway). "Come down to Tower 4th & Broadway beginning 9:00 AM on Tuesday 5/16, and get a wristband for this performance when you purchase the new Raconteurs CD Broken Boy Soldiers. One wristband per person limit. Space for this performance is limited."
