The Black Keys at McCarren

It has been a good music week for me, I saw Cincinnati’s finest The National on Monday at SummerStage, L trained it to Brooklyn last night to see the The Black Keys (Akron, Ohio represent!) at McCarren and this Saturday I have tickets to see Kings of Leon / Radiohead at All Points West.

It is going to be hard for anyone at APW to top The Black Keys last night. How just two guys can create such a powerful and insanely rich (read: fucking loud) sound is baffling to me. Especially considering Dan Auerbach doesn’t use a pick. The performance was one of the best I have seen in a long long time. My photos and videos below.
