The Black Keys

With all the one-hit-wonders who revolve through top 40 music each year, I always have trouble keeping up with who the current, hip musicians are. Plus, I listen almost exclusively to classic rock radio and my MP3 player. Though classic rock is usually playing on my MP3 player, one current band that is in heavy rotation is Akron, Ohio’s The Black Keys

The Black Keys are a two-man band featuring guitarist-vocalist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney. The band’s latest album “Attack and Release” came out in April and was produced Danger Mouse of Gnarls Barkley. The video for “Strange Times,”  one of the first singles released off the album, is also amazing. Earlier this year, they performed “I Got Mine from “Attack and Release” on “Late Night with David Letterman.

According to Reuters, ZZ Top is interested in working with The Black Keys.

The Black Keys will be coming close to Owensboro several times in October, including Louisville on Oct. 7, Nashville on Oct. 8 and Covington on Oct. 10.
