The Black Keys and Sonic Youth On Austin City Limits This Weekend

12/27/2012
.
The Black Keys and Sonic Youth will be featured in an encore episode of Austin City Limits (ACL) airing Saturday, December 29th on PBS. We were sent these details:

The Black Keys are. The Ohio blues-rock duo are enjoying a victory lap in their road-tested career, recently scoring five 2013 Grammy nominations, including Album of the Year and Best Rock Album for their platinum-selling El Camino, capping off a stellar year that included headlining music's biggest festivals and playing to sold-out arenas worldwide.

The episode, which originally aired in October 2010, is a prescient indicator of things to come as the band bring raw energy and steel-belt grit to tracks from their 2010 breakout album Brothers in their ACL debut.

The Black Keys have spent the better part of a decade building a following through relentless touring and word of mouth to become one of the biggest rock bands of their generation. The duo of guitarist/vocalist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney has come a long way from their 2002 debut, attracting a huge fan base for their blistering live shows. In their ACL debut in Season 36, the pair reach back to their earlier material to kick things off, and proceed to tear through soulful tracks from Brothers, the album that earned them three Grammy Awards in 2011 and made them a favorite with concert-goers. With their charged blues-rock and unapologetic guitar riffs, The Black Keys command the ACL stage in a spectacle of raw-rock grandeur.

"The Black Keys are headlining festivals and arenas these days, but this performance one of the last shows in the original, historic Austin City Limits studio captures the essence of what makes their music resonate with so many millions of new fans," says executive producer Terry Lickona. "Little did they know, but the 300 people in the studio were witnessing history, and it's great to be able to re-live that day again!"

The episode also features Sonic Youth, a band that needs no introduction, showcasing the avant-garde rock of their 2010 album The Eternal.
