Show Review - Black Keys - Point State Park - Concert Review - 6/5/09

I didn't see the Black Keys the last time they were here (New American Music Festival) when I skipped out on the day. After seeing the Black Keys Friday night with an approximate crowd over 6000 people I wish I had. This duo of drums and guitars with their blues infused rock opened up the 3 Rivers Arts Festival with a huge bang. If you were there you know what I am talking about. If you weren't, you really missed out on a great free show in Pgh. There was a very diverse crowd on hand where I saw hippies dancing like we were at a Phish show, the Baby Boom generation (+60 standing on chairs) and a infused crowd of HS kids jumping and crowd surfing.

It bewilders me why these guys don't come to Pittsburgh more often since they had such a large crowd plus living only 1.5 hours from us. They bring the goods.
