Black Keys... (by James Carney)
Black Keys

In 2009, both halves of The Black Keys kept remarkably busy with their separate and joint projects. Drummer Patrick Carney released a record and toured with his new band Drummer, while singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach put out his own record (a solo album) and two tours.

Both members were also part of the BlackRoc record, which paired their instruments with rappers like Mos Def, Pharaoh Monch and Q-Tip.

They also found time to play shows as a band, one being their New Year's Eve show in Chicago opened by Kurt Vile.

In 2010, the band will be at the southern rock/blues/jam/funk-focused Wanee Music Festival (headlined by The Allman Brothers) in Florida this April. Full lineup (Sharon Jones, George Clinton, Widespread Panic and More) below. The Allman Brothers recently added some shows to their NYC run that happens even sooner, in March)

Black Keys will also be playing a ticketed show at NYC's Central Park Summerstage on Tuesday, July 27th. $35.00 Tickets go on sale Friday, February 5th at noon. Tinariwen was also just revealed as a band playing Summerstage this summer, though their show is probably free (thanks in part to the money raised by the ticketed shows like The Black Keys... and Pavement).

Videos, tour dates and the fest's lineup are below...

Thank you, Black Keys -- and every other band who's charged audiences at Rumsey -- for making me pay to hear music in a venue I own.

I second 1:24's comment. It's great to start thinking about summer during the cold days of Feb.

It's been ages since this band played at a decent venue. If they no longer want to play small rooms, can they at least once play at an assigned seating place. Not that I'd be sitting.

Do you mean because its a public park and you are a taxpayer is that what you are getting at ? if so... you cant just apply that rule to all aspects of the park... do you own the Zoo ? The Boathouse ?

there have been regular (not free) concerts for many years now..

The not free concerts help pay for the free ones. And you can also donate at the free ones too.

or you can just sit right outside of the paying area and listen for free :)

anon 1:42, are you the city of new york talking? cause if you ain't, you don't own central park.

Posted by Anonymous | February 1, 2010 4:04 PM

yeah, 1:42, your comment is really confusing...

wonder if there will be any special guests ala blakroc

enough people like the black keys to sell $35 tickets for summer stage?

Posted by Anonymous | February 1, 2010 10:10 PM

i like the free concerts better, plus you get to wait in line for 2 hours.

Wonderful post and the location is beautiful and elegant in design and information and everything>>> to Favorites
i hear there's a show at shea stadium with so so glos, static jacks, and shapes.

Guggenheim billed it as a performance piece and it was just an installation. Resultingly, the crowd simply waited for the "show" to start, limiting anyone's ability to freely explore the space (the ground floor was packed with indian-style seaters, and the balconies were lined with people holding onto their spots like grim death.

Hey ya'll we lost another one.......but I'm glad to have grown up with gangstarr as representatives of this music that has an incredible history.....hip hop is a book that wrote itself and GURU was definetly one of its main characters.....we are all getting older.....and GURU is one of the MCs that added a soundtrack to our lives in the 80's and 90's.......the NAMES,PLACES and FACES come to mind when I hear a GANGSTARR track.........I thank GOD that he allowed GURU to shine in his short time...........REST IN EVERLASTING PEACE GURU

i thought it was pretty amazing that these bands brought everyone to their feet in Carnegie Hall. Everyone was there with good vibes celebrating an amazing culture that embraces compassion and tolerance. I have no complaints other than the 2 hipsters behind me who had a comment about everything that was wrong with the venue. Why go?
