    Raconteurs End Three-Year Hiatus at MI Fest

    The inaugural MI Fest, about 75 miles southwest of Detroit, served as a showcase for all things Jack White, including young bands who've recorded for his Third Man Records imprint. But the real attraction was a supercharged 14-song, 85-minute set by the Raconteurs, his band featuring Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence, and Patrick Keeler, who ended three years of dormancy on the MI Fest stage. Following a pair of low-key warm-up gigs in Nashville last week, the Raconteurs sounded fresh and invigorated, tearing through songs from their two albums, 2006's Broken Boy Soldiers and 2008's Consolers of the Lonely, but failing to unveil any new material.
