The Black Keys at 1STBANK Center, with the Arctic Monkeys, 4/30/12

Eric Gruneisen


Personal Bias: Arctic Monkeys are my favorite current rock band. Tomorrow, I'll have seen them ten times.

By the Way: During a previous Denver trip, the Black Keys played the Lion's Lair. "Or was it the Lion's Den?" joked Auerbach. "I think we've played both of those before."

Random Detail: All of the Black Keys' techs wear suits -- some of them with bowties -- which makes them look twice as presentable as their employers, if half as badass.

You captured the show so well, Kelsey. I went on day 2 and you describe it just how it was, even the suited roadies. Props to you!


I really don't know too much about this band, but the arena scenes look great.



Age ain't nothingbut a number for these loved-up A-Listers. My BF and I both think so! I am almost10 years older than him. We met via ~~Cougarlove .COM~~ a nice place for older women and youngermen, to interact with each other! Maybe you wanna check it out or tell yourfriends :)
