I gotta be honest.
The “Most Blogged About Shows” this week seems to be a bit… thin. That doesn’t mean there aren’t some really good options for you, if you happen to be “hangin’ round these parts” this week. But if you’re like a lot of the bands we normally feature here… you WON’T be “hangin’ round these parts” this week. You’ll be down in Austin for SXSW. Oh, and my usage of “hangin’ round these parts” in a paragraph about Austin, Texas, is purely coincidental. I assure you.
Anyway, I digress. I will be here for the week. And I’ve got some shows that will make you and I both feel A LITTLE better about being in Brooklyn, while everyone else sweats their asses off at “south by.”
Our most blogged about show this week is SOLD OUT (as is GENERALLY the case), and it’s a big one – The Black Keys and Arctic Monkeys at Madison Square Garden. It’s kind of crazy how HUGE The Black Keys have gotten, but I guess it makes sense; they’re talented and have a pretty “inoffensive” sound. I gotta be honest. Again. I’ve never personally been able to get into either of these bands, but hey, if you got a ticket, enjoy.
