The Black Keys @ the Roots Picnic 2009 (more by Tim Griffin)
The Black Keys

"The Black Keys' new album, Brothers, is due May 18 on Nonesuch Records. In conjunction with the album's release, the band will launch an exclusive pop-up store at New York City's Housing Works Bookstore Cafe, one of downtown New York's most vital community institutions. The pop-up store will be open from May 18 through May 20 only, highlighted by an intimate performance by The Black Keys on May 19 from which 100% of ticket proceeds will go directly to Housing Works, Inc., which provides housing, healthcare, job training, and advocacy for New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS."
Tickets are on sale, and it's actually only one of at least two shows the Black Keys will play while they're in town. The other one is free. All dates below...

Yea, they want $100 a ticket! Ha. Sorry, can't make it

Got 1. Yeah, expensive - but it's for charity.

I love how some people blast the corporate sponsored shows, then also complain about one for charity.

$100 is not expensive for a charity show. If you can't afford, maybe in your next lifetime you will study in college instead of doing bong hits.

I love how some people complain about one thing and other people complain about something else.

I hate people who complain about people complaining.

1:14pm and 1:29pm obviously cannot afford the show. Have fun in line for the free show!

They should have a giveaway for $50 tickets again.

Does anybody know if it will be a full electric set or acoustic?

ive been to shows at the housing works before and they have all been open bar

Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie were really good albums. Got them when they came out, still throw them on at times and think they're great. It saddens me when I hear bands from that era when I was a teenager and hear their new stuff and it's so clear how they've lost it, they sound desperate to recapture a sound/magic that they haven't had in 15 years (holy shit).... And then I realize that is not unlike a lot of us.
