SLCene Suggests: The Black Keys at the Maverik Center

by on November 11, 2014


THE BLACK KEYS, MAVERIK CENTER, Wednesday, Nov. 12, 8 p.m., $30-$60

In an era when finding actual rock ‘n’ roll bands anywhere near the top of the charts is pretty much impossible, The Black Keys stand out. Thank God. the duo’s evolution from a bluesy twosome into a more expansive, soulful rock and pop machine might be a turn-off to some long-time fans who still wish they were touring in a van and delivering reheating traditional blues riffs, but Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney have bigger ideas, and their albums have gotten better as they’ve explored those ideas. Collaborating with producer Danger Mouse on their most-recent release, Turn Blue, the Keys dig into some funk and psychedelia this time around, as wall as straightforward rock. It’s the band’s eighth full-length, and arguably their best, and should translate the large stage of the Maverik Center just fine. Jake Bugg opens the show.
