This October >> The Black Keys will make their return to the desert. They'll be playing downtown Phoenix at US Airways Center and while it's far from a desirable venue in my book [for a concert, that is] I can understand why their return necessitates such a large capacity. Their last show here was an epic one last year at Mesa Amphitheatre, which is a great venue but extremely limited when you consider how much The Black Keys have blown up since last April.
I saw over 100 shows last year and that Black Keys show was definitely one of my favorites of 2011. I love Mesa Amp in desert spring weather and the duo rocked it to the max. I guess yesterday's concert announcement just stirred up memories of a great show and the movie moments that ensued with my date that I went digging for footage in the zB vault. In the process I realized I forgot to upload any videos from shows last April but it's better late than never, right? Hopefully I'm stirring up some great memories for you too but at the very least, please enjoy the lost footage from The Black Keys, Pinback [Clubhouse, RIP] and a DJ set from Mira Aroyo of Ladytron [Brick] below and more on the zBORED YouTube channel.
