oh_deanna: (the black keys // skull and mayhem)
So as most of you guys know by now, I am a rabid Black Keys fan, have been since I was 16/17. I saw them for the first time last night with my Emma, and they were awesome!

The opening act was The Royal Headaches, an Aussie band from Melbourne that were really awesome and energetic and fun, I recommend you guys check them out!

I bought a shirt, some badges and their latest album El Camino, with the extra tour rehearsal tracks. I almost bought their poster but it had a giant fucking rooster on it so NO THANK YOU!

It was the best concert I've ever been to, and not just because they're my favourite band. Everyone was so happy - you could look across the stadium and all you could see where people hugging and dancing and singing and having fun, it was the best experience ever. Emma and I spent the whole time singing and dancing to every single song (we were so exhausted by the end of it, but it was totally worth it).

We did not have the best seats, we were a fair bit back but the place where they played was not that big, I think it was like 14,000 capacity so we actually weren't that far from the stage. I did take heaps of videos but to be honest they're not very good (I mean, the sound is excellent but the footage is quite shaky due to a combination of dancing and being so far away, but I'll post one. And I'll also post one from this other girl's. I spoke to her on tumblr, she was in the front row and even she said that it was the most peaceful concert ever. She was right at the railing the whole time and no one shoved her or got in her way or anything. I could see into the crowd and there was like no on full on moshing, they were just dancing and having a blast. So yes, here are some videos from the night on video (highlight would have to be the giant disco ball!). The first one is from the girl, and the second shitty one is mine and it's really short but I just loved the way his voice sounded, especially around the 0:30 mark. So amazing!

First of all, let me just get this out of the way:.....


I AM GOING TO SEE THE BLACK KEYS IN OCTOBER MY DAD IS BUYING ME TICKETS FOR MY BIRTHDAY WHICH IS ALSO IN OCTOBER I AM GOING WITH MY BEST FRIEND IN THE WHOLE WORLD (EMMA) TO SEE MY FAVOURITE BAND IN THE WHOLE WORLD (THE AFOREMENTIONED BLACK KEYS). I AM CRYING TEARS OF JOY RIGHT NOW NO JOKE.

Anyway, so tickets when on sale last week but there are still tickets left so I'm going to hopefully get them tomorrow. I am so happy right now. I've loved the Black Keys since I was in year 12, and according to last.fm, I first scrobbled one of their songs (So He Won't Break, apparently) on the 14th of October 2008. It's been a whirlwind romance ever since. In celebration of the fact that I am actually going to be in the same place as Dan and Patrick in October, here are some of my favourite Black Keys songs. If you haven't heard of them before / never really got them, I implore you to give them a chance. They are amazing. They're tight as hell, every single song is amazingly raw and awesome and [insert other awesome sounding adjective here]. They're this perfect combination of garage rock and blues and they're the best. These comments on youtube describes them better than I ever could:





Here they are live, being flawless and amazing as always:



LISTEN TO THESE SONGS. THEY WILL BLOW YOUR MIND. )
