Forecastle Preview: The Black Keys

One of the last true great rock bands, Ohio-based The Black Keys, are co-headlining Forecastle Festival this year. In the vein of The White Stripes in the way that these two carry off the Guitar+Drums only format, The Black Keys are meant to be a festival band.  I call them one of the true great rock bands because they have a sound so absurdly big that it cannot be contained and they just seem so natural on stage.  Black Keys recently opened for local hometown gods My Morning Jacket, and made for a perfect fit as they’re nearly just as face melting.

On their most recent performance in Louisville, the show sold out CityBlock (if I recall correctly), and they’re sure to sell just as many tickets for Forecastle.  Could be best to buy tickets early, because at $40 for a single day passes & three day passes at $100 (available at Ticketmaster), they’re likely to go fast.
