The Black Keys

September 13 2014 @ 8:00 pm

Among contemporary rock acts, blues rockers The Black Keys are ubiquitous, and tonight they perform at CONSOL Energy Center. Between their work on soundtracks, their commercial work, and radio play bordering on excessive, one had to have been living in solitude for the past five years to avoid the Black Keys’ music. What’s truly impressive is that despite their rich, deep, bluesy sound, the Black Keys are just a two-man outfit, consisting of Dan Auerbach on guitar and vocals and Patrick Carney on drums. And though they’ve only been nominated for three years—2011, 2012, and 2013—they have won seven Grammy Awards to date. The current tour celebrates the band’s new release, Turn Blue, which was announced and released over the course of mere months earlier this year. Besides their success in the Black Keys, Auerbach and Carney have embarked on solo ventures. Auerbach released a full-length solo album, while Carney hosts a satellite radio show and recently composed the kickin’ theme song for the Netflix original series, “Bojack Horseman,” the extended cut of which was recently released. Joined by Cage the Elephant. 8 p.m. 1001 Fifth Ave., Hill District.
