The Black Keys
The bluesy duo brings their first arena tour to Tulsa.
Does Tulsa know how lucky it is? Bands like the Black Keys are out there playing the golden circuits of smaller venues witness to the new artists and sounds moving like deep undercurrents below a city’s surface. They stay on the move, building a faithful following if they’re any good, and sometimes ride out a career in these exciting strata. The duo of Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney have been there with garage-band blues, shredded licks and singed beats. Since the release of the album Brothers in 2010, however, The Black Keys have gone to the proverbial mainstream, enjoying wide recognition from play on TV commercials and shows. The most recent Black Keys album, El Camino, was released in December. Why is Tulsa so lucky? T-Town has witnessed this act at various stages in its evolution in 2006, 2010 and next on April 28 at the only place that will do. Tickets for the BOK Center show are available at www.bokcenter.com
