Photos: Royal Blood brings lean rock riffs to Jannus Live in St. Petersburg

The Jannus Live courtyard was packed and primed for some serious rock 'n' roll business Tuesday night as British rock duo Royal Blood made their local debut in St. Petersburg.

Singer-bassist Mike Kerr and drummer Ben Thatcher brought about as lean a machine to the stage as you'd think, although backing singers did pop up on occasion. With his bass roaring out guitar-like distortion, Kerr kicked, flexed and posed for a crowd that sang along with him, all while Thatcher pounded out a heavy, blues-influenced beat.
