    Hi guys. Gonna be seen Black Keys this weekend and wanted advice as what to wear for a Black Keys gig? It's gonna be a cold night in December so don't want to be walking around in just t-shirt, but at same time don't wanna be sweating my bag off inside concert.

    Any ideas please Black Jeans? denim shirt? Sweater or shirt ? Shoes or high tops?

    Look forward to your ideas guys. thanks

    Jeez Nath you and tweed an unlined or half-lined tweed blazer would be scratchy as hell!

    But yeah I agree with the thrust of it - jeans and a tee, a light jacket/heavy shirt, and some casual shoes.

    You going to be seated or standing? If you're standing I'd go for nothing heavier than a denim shirt over a tee; best to suffer the cold outside to avoid burning up in there. I'd also opt for a pair of trainers you don't mind being trodden on - comfier for standing up on, and easier to pogo in should it come to that
    Alternatively the venue might have a cloakroom, which usually costs a pound or two.. but makes life easier. So in that case just bring a coat and drop it off.

    If you're in the stands wear whatever you like on your feet, and go for a light jacket - say, a bomber or cotton blazer - on top. Unless, again, there's a cloakroom.

    I'm assuming it's an indoors gig with a wardrobe right?

    A Black Keys concert ain't gonna be a stand-around concert so for my taste a tweed blazer - or any blazer for that matter - would feel too stiff and movement-constricting for a blues/alt-rock gig.
    The rest of what Nath suggests sounds good to me though and then paired with your own suggestion of a denim shirt (maybe swapping the indigo jeans for black skinnies too).

    It really does depend on how much jumping and dancing you generally do at concerts though!

    Edit: Ok Sam beat me to it and basically said everything I wanted to say haha

    I was a bit foward with the tweed, it's just a tweed/wool jackets forms the basis for nearly ALL of my outfits these days.

    How about a denim jacket? Paired with black skinny jeans and scuffed black derbies? Plain white tee, a few trashy wristbands and you've got an appropriately indie rock look to play around with.

    Yes, you're at a gig, no one will care and they'll be black by the end of it anyway.
