Raconteurs at The Pageant, June 12, 2008, St. Louis

The Raconteurs sold out the Pageant in the Delmar Loop on Thursday, June 12, 2008. Fans came from as far as Colorado, or waited in line for most of Thursday, just so they could be among the first in the doors. Todd Owyoung has these photos of the show and of the Raconteurs fans. Don't miss the photo of the guy in homemade band jacket.
