Oh oh oh!! How were the Black Keys??? And more importantly Cage the Elephant??
The Black Keys were really good!! They sounded tight, had a decent enough sound system to overcome the concrete cavern that is the Corral and they had a kick ass stage and light show to boot. The setlist pretty much covered all of their albums. The one complaint that I have is that the show was pretty short. Their set came and went in under 80 minutes, including the encore. Not sure if it was worth the $60 price tag, but I'm glad I finally saw them.
Unfortunately I made it just in time for Cage the Elephant, and they FUCKING SUCKED!!! Just like I thought they would. They were so loud and ended up sounding like shit. We left their set after one song and sat on the concourse and they were still annoying. I'm not a fan and have seen them more times then I would care to. I'm so disappointed that they are on tap to open for the Foo Fighters. To each their own though.

I wouldn't be surprised if you are picturing me peeling a carrot with a staple gun.
4.4/5, including the weight of the unfair low ratings by irrational Lykke Li fanboys.
I have seen The Black Keys multiple times. I have seen Cage The Elephant multiple times. I do not need to check, or double check, to know that anyone that says that TBK is superior to CTE's live show are either a) fanboys; or b) randies that do not go to that many shows; or c) fanboy randies.
