"Black keys midnight show at Terminal 5 melted my face. I officially have no fuckin face!" - Joe Thompson

black keys and Lee Fields at Terminal 5

Despite playing a headlining show at Summerstage earlier in the evening, the Black Keys still managed to melt faces for 90 minutes and 22 songs at Terminal 5 last night (7/28). The SPIN/ZYNC show, the third in a series of five, was opened by The Whigs and Lee Fields and the Expressions (including some familiar Daptone faces)...

"But the show belonged to Auerbach and Carney -- even when they had help. About halfway into the set, two members of Fields' backing band came out to play bass and keyboard for a few numbers. The extra muscle made songs such as Brother's "Everlasting Light" sound a tad conventional when compared to the lean aggression that fired "I Got Mine," from 2008's Attack & Release, but the former song's creeping eighth note bassline and eerie, clanging keyboard stabs were thrilling in their own right." [SPIN]
The show also streamed online, like the National/Suckers/Kurt Vile gig happening at the same venue will tonight. More pictures from it, with the Black Keys' setlist, below...

For a band w/6 albums, I've love to see some setlist changes (other than the opener).

Oh good, I was hoping for some more Black Keys coverage.

11:25 --- It really wouldn't matter. All of their songs sound exactly the fucking same.

Since when do you start at midnight? Get the hook out for those opening acts and get the show started by at least ten next time. Christ. Great show though...

You start at midnight when you're playing a show earlier that night that ends at 9:30 jackass

You start at midnight when you play a show earlier in the evening in Central Park.

1:35 - if opener was Thickfreakness, I take back my comment (11:25) about changing the opener. Exact same setlist for three consecutive shows.

Joe Thompson hit the nail on the head.

I gotta say, when I saw Lee Fields and the Expressions come out I was not enthused, but they won me over with the Jay-Z Roc Boys nod.

Posted by Dave | July 29, 2010 8:38 PM

wow. they melted bro's face off. melted.

the Central Park show was better

Posted by dangeorgio | July 30, 2010 8:38 PM

The opener was Thickfreakness, I don't know why all these sites say any different

Posted by Yoss | July 31, 2010 11:04 AM

The Expressions are also the Menahan Street Band, whose song "Make the Road by Walking" was sampled by Jay-Z. So it was not a nod, but the real thing.

I bet a lot of people wouldn't have gone if they knew they had to wait around all night. I could only muster up a "yay" at that point.
