Though The Raconteurs currently are on hiatus while the group's members pursue other projects, half of the quartet's lineup will hit the stage for a one-off performance to mark Record Store Day.

Billing themselves as The Racontwoers, guitarist/singer Brendan Benson and drummer Patrick Keeler plan to appear April 17 at fellow Raconteurs band-member Jack White's Third Man Records headquarters in Nashville, where the pair will be joined by "some friends" while performing a number of Raconteurs songs, according to a press release.

In addition to marking Record Store Day, the performance will also coincide with the re-release of The Raconteurs debut album, 2006's "Broken Boy Soldiers." TMR plans to issue both a standard version and a limited-edition, Record Store Day version of the set in the form of 300 copper-colored albums.

    They need to just put out another album. Hate Dead Weather, Love Raconteurs. Jack White will probably show up, it is his record store after all. If he shows up Jack Lawrence won't have anything else going on, so he'll come too.

    why would they not announce jack white and jack lawrence showing up? that doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
