ACL Day 1: The Black Keys


Walking over to the Bud Light stage was not easy 15 minutes before The Black Keys came on. This was undoubtedly the biggest crowd of the night (only Florence + The Machine, which immediately preceded them, came close), and the mood seemed to be that everyone was ready to party. It was the loudest crowd I'd heard all day as the first chord rang out and it lasted throughout their whole set. The Black Keys certainly know how to party — the very reason the band had the headlining slot on Day One.
