What’s better than watching a completely rockin’ band at the Commodore for $20? Not much at all really. Despite the fact that I felt out of place with out a fedora, horn-rimmed glasses, a beard, or a jean jacket, I thoroughly enjoyed The Black Keys.

The volume and caliber of nostril-tickling sound that those two men produce is beyond compare in rock today. Boy am I sure glad John introduced me to them a few years ago.

Update: The Black Keys website has a fan photo gallery where they’re aggregating in photos with the appropriate tags from Flickr. The photo in this post (above) is now on there. Awesome.

    I like the Commodore. I’ll be going this Saturday to see John Butler Trio. Not sure who they are but gf and her friends want me to go too.

    Rebecca, who took that shot of the stage? Was it you or your hubby? I’m curious how it was done without the use of the flash or a high SIO setting. I want to try and take decent photos when I go (even though they say the Commodore doesn’t allow cameras).

    Concert tip: If you’re anywhere but the very front of the stage… don’t ever use a flash (otherwise you’re just lighting up the head of the person in front of you) 😛 Well, at least that works best for our little Canon Powershot anyway.

  3. Are… are you making fun of my jean jacket? I think you’re making fun of my jean jacket. No, I’m not crying. Just have a bit of a cold, that’s all. *sniff*

    BTW, free (and legal) John Butler Trio for those looking to preview:

    Don, your jean jacket rocks. I just wish I had one that’s all… and a beard 😛 You coming for another visit soon or WHAT?
