The Black Keys Here at Gig Junkies we’re so lucky. We get to photograph some fantastic gigs. The Black Keys' gig at The NIA in Birmingham on 9th December is just one of them. Gig Junkies' very own Bianca got to shoot the Akron Ohio duo's show. We hope that you like what she saw. Were you there? We would love to hear what you thought. Tweet us @GigJunkies and we'll post your thoughts, right here alongside the photos.

The Black Keys The packed Apollo crowd of 3,500 revellers were lapping it up. From the minute they kicked off with 'Howling for You' through to the oh so catchy ‘Gold on the Ceiling’ the crowd went bonkers. ‘Little Black Submarine’ with its beautiful vocal melody and mesmerising guitar solo, was most definitely the live performance highlight from the new album.

The Black Keys In a situation resembling that of the Amy Macdonald gig a week earlier, where I knew absolutely nothing about the artist, I had a similar dilemma with The Black Keys. This time however it was at the other end of the spectrum - I'd seen the duo from Akron Ohio, more times than you can shake a stick at! Reason being.... I love em! The fact that they are a two piece with so much more raw power than most four and five piece bands have, gets me every time. Dan with his growling vocal - akin to a young Paul Rogers together with his snarling guitar lines, ably complimented by Pat on the marauding drums is right up my strata. I make no bones about it. I love, love, love em. Consequently it's pretty hard to give a balanced, entirely objective view. By the powers vested in me as a professional journo however, by golly I'd try!

The Black Keys I love this time of year. Hot sunny days, long warm nights, shorts and BBQs… And if you’re a music lover or Gig Junkie it means music festivals going off up and down the country every weekend. Of course there’s the biggie, the one every band wants to play – Glastonbury. By far the greatest asset of Glastonbury is it’s sheer power in bringing some of the worlds greatest bands to these shores. And whilst here why not turn one festival appearance into a mini tour and play a small handful of gigs in the few minutes you have spare. Taking this into account means that London, Bristol, Manchester and Birmingham get the chance to see alternative Blues / Rock duo ‘The Black Keys’ before embarking on a full US tour.
