I need to decide between the Oakland and Sacramento show by tomorrow. This sucks.

The moment they announced Arctic Monkeys as their opening act I know I HAD to see a show on this leg. I LOVE both bands and saw them in less than ideal situations. It was honestly a bit scary.

They're coming back to SoCal this fall, but playing ARENAS fer chrissake. I hope I don't see a Kings of Leon thing happening here. You know, early albums are raw and good, then they "mature" meaning they get boring for more radio play then get REALLY big.

The first half of El Camino is pretty good, but the rest of it, not as much.

The contrast between El Camino and Brothers is nowhere near as sharp as Only By The Night and Because Of The Times.

When the Black Keys start using reverb, I'll panic.

But compare Youth and Young Manhood to Because of the Times.

Then compare Rubber Factory to Brothers.


It scares a person.

But they do use reverb, and plenty of it, since at least Attack & Release.

Probably. Last tour, it wasn't and it's wigging me out a little.

It's that I don't like the trend towards radio-friendly hits rather than musical evolution. If it starts to sound calculated, or smoothed over, than that bothers me.
