The Black Keys in NYC in January (more by Chad Kamenshine)
Blues rock duo The Black Keys recently announced a tour of the US and Canada that brings them to Texas for shows in Houston on November 15 at Toyota Center, Dallas on November 16 at American Airlines Center, and about a month later Austin on December 19 at The Frank Erwin Center. The Houston/Dallas shows are with Jake Bugg, and very excitingly the Austin show is with St. Vincent, who will also be in Austin for ACL.
Tickets for those shows go on sale Friday (5/16) at 10 AM with a Citi presale starting Tuesday (5/13) at 10 AM, a Facebook presale starting Wednesday (5/14) at 10 AM, and a Live Nation presale starting Thursday (5/15) at 10 AM. To access the Facebook presale, pre-order the new Black Keys album, Turn Blue (due out 5/13 via Nonesuch) from the band's website.
Another year, another round of great free SXSW shows at Waterloo Records in Austin. Typed out below...

Black Angels @ ACL Fest 10/11/2013
The Austin City Limits Festival 2013 opened its second weekend as the sold-out festival it has been for more than a decade, encouraging hopes that the dual-weekend approach to the event would stick past this year. It did dash some expectations that a repeat of its opening round last weekend would draw smaller crowds, at least over the course of the entire three days.While Sunday's finale (10/13) was a literal wash, the second weekend of the ACL Music Festival got off to a muggy start on Friday (10/11) with -- like the previous Friday -- sets from Arctic Monkeys, Vampire Weekend, QOTSA, Okkervil River, Pinback, Jake Bugg, Depeche Mode, Local Natives, Muse and more. Pictures from day 1 are in this post.
But the sea of humanity was noticeably thinner on Day One in the early hours -- more like the festival days of old, when it was just the working locals who came to ACL; from 11 am to around 4 pm Friday, the atmosphere was low-key, aired-out and open, with plenty of space for blankets and no throngs stepping on your toes every four seconds. - [CultureMap]
