The Black Keys

US Airways Center Phoenix, AZ

No one has done a better job of keeping rock and roll alive and relevant these past 10 years than guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney, collectively known as the Black Keys. From the primal blues-punk swagger of 2002’s “The Big Come Up” to the atmospheric, Grammy-winning whistling break of “Tighten Up” and last year’s model, “El Camino,” the Keys have also managed to evolve without abandoning the qualities that made them matter in the first place. And they sound good in commercials.

Producer extraordinaire Danger Mouse only helmed the consoles for one song - fuzzed out, whistle-accentuated lead single “Tighten Up” - off “Brothers,” the sixth album from galvanic Ohio blues rock duo the Black Keys.

Is The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney the most entertaining drummer currently out on the road? He’s certainly in the discussion, in no small part because of his front-and-center profile as a main cog in the previously two-man (now mostly four) blues-cum-arena rock band.
