Here in the Denver area the Raconteurs/Cat Power episode of Austin City Limits is going to come on in five minutes. If you’ve got the time you should really change the channel to PBS (or, even better, just point your DVR at it). The Raconteurs are just ok… I mean, they’re good, but just what you’d expect. But the concert is nearly worth the price of admission (err… you know what I mean) just for Cat Power’s silly Mick Jagger impression when the band is starting into a cover of “Satisfaction.” The two songs from older albums (the previously mentioned Stones song and “Cross-Bones Style”) both really benefit from the southern soul style of her current band.
I do wish they’d done “Love and Communication.” That’s my favorite song from the new album, but they did play three of my other favorites, so I’m still happy.
“Wow, that’s a lot of parentheticals,” I thought to myself while rereading this post. Then I added another because it seemed better than the commas I had before.
