Oh man I just love The Black Keys... and I sorta love that there were a shit ton of people at the show. I don't even care about what I call "the edge factor". You know, when a group of 2 to 3 couples will go to a show as a fun "date night" because they like the one song they heard on X103 (formally The Edge).
Sure they are there to have a good time, but they really don't care about the music, except for the couple of songs that they have heard on the radio. So they spend most of the concert taking pictures of each other and getting fucking up on Bud Light. It's cool and all, but wouldn't they have had a better time at some Scottsdale club listening to the few songs they "sorta like" from a selection of several bands that they "sorta like"?
I am just trying to say that it's super weird to spend all that time and money on going to a show then spend the whole time taking pictures of each other. It should be spent taking pictures of the band... that is what I do. For only for the first 3 songs, then I watch the show and get super annoyed by the people in front of me taking pictures of themselves.
