This is a totally awesome contest to promote The Black Keys’ performance on “Live From Abbey Road,” a music series which airs on the Sundance Channel on Thursday nights at 10pm. I don’t get Sundance, but if I did, I’d surely watch this. The series is going to feature 36 artists at the legendary Abbey Road studios–get Exclusive Performances, Interviews and photos here. The show will also feature folks like Matchbox Twenty, Def Leppard, Elbow, MGMT, Alanis Morissette, The Fratellis, The Subways, and Brian Wilson. And many more. As for The Black Keys, here’s clips of their interview and performance.

If you don’t know, The Black Keys are a fantastic blues duo known for rootsy blues-rock. Their latest album was produced by Dangermouse (of all people!), but their first handfull of releases were 100% indie. The Black Keys’ performance is this Thursday, July 24th. Maybe they’ll do my favorite BK cover?

    Um, yes please. As far as i’m concerned, the Black Keys are the best band touring today. i see them everytime they come through town and have even travelled to see them (Austin City Limits a few years ago). Plus, who doesn’t need more skin care products? Nobody. Not even your grandfather.

    I feel guilty that a comment to get some free swag has to be my first post on your most excellent blog. I’m a huge fan of the Black Keys but I would be remiss if I didn’t tell you how much I’ve grown to appreciate The Clash after many of your posts. Keep up the good work.
