The Black Keys


The Black Keys – the Akron duo of guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney – has come a long way from its 2002 debut, and seven studio albums later their strong blues sensibility and unapologetic guitar riffs are still intact, but this time with a broader scope. Recent collaborations with producer Danger Mouse, and singles featured in commercials, films, and television shows have attracted a wider audience for their unique blend of blues, rock, and soul, and their raw energy and steel-belt grit makes them a favorite with concert-goers. Their highly successful tour of the US and Europe, supporting their acclaimed new album, Brothers, brings their straight-up rock to the Austin City Limits stage on October 12, 2010.
