These guys are really incredible - you can check them out at their My Space: http://www.myspace.com/raconteurs
Anyway, I'm on the mailing list for the band, and they just announced a bunch of new tourdates and a presale. Just in case there are some Raconteurs fans out there who haven't heard, I want to give everyone a heads up.

Once you get to the Raconteurs presale website, click on the little "Login" link above the tour date listing and enter the following password for access to presale tickets: brokenboy
After selecting the show that you want to buy tickets to, you have to register an account with the presale. The account is totally FREE - once you get to the screen that says "CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT", click on the "Continue" button, create a username and user password (NOTE: user password is NOT "brokenboy"; it's something completely deifferent that you make up), and register your email address. The process is farily simple.
This is a FANTASTIC live band (saw them at Irving Plaza in NYC in April), and this summer tour is selling out FAST! Definitely pick tickets up through the presale and make sure you do so before Friday, 6/9 at 4PM (when the presale ends).
I'm checking out the Roseland show on 9/26 - anyone else going?
Just trying to spread the word about a great new band.
