The Black Keys and Arctic Monkeys at MSG 3.22.2012

The Black Keys and Arctic Monkeys played an amazing show last night at Madison Square Garden to a sold out crowd. The Arctic Monkeys opened up the show with a laid back vibe and some excellent musicianship and even though the crowd was still pouring in throughout their set it was clear the boys from Sheffield had a large loyal audience for their 45 minute set. The Black Keys hit the stage joined by a few backing musicians and some pretty awesome graphic visuals and onstage lighting. After a few intense songs the backing band left the stage and guitarist/vocalist Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney showed off how much sound two musicians can deliver by themselves. The show ramped up and the energy intensified leading up to a great encore featuring a giant disco ball and an exhausted crowd.
