The Black Keys and Arctic Monkeys at HP Pavillion [Photo Review]

05/10/2012

I love both of these bands, but in an arena–no thanks. Don’t get my wrong, the show was very good it just wasn’t my cup of tea. The Arctic Monkeys didn’t play “Fake Tales of San Francisco” which I thought was a too cool for school move. The Black Keys sound better in a bar, smaller setting where their music builds on the ambiance. It is hard for me to write something because it’s never worth it to be critical.  I love Arctic Monkeys, but it was only towards the end of their set did they “bring it.”
