The Black Keys Play Toronto’s 2011 MMVAs June 19th

Special to TVD Toronto: Kris

Dan Auerbach and Pat Carney, also known as The Black Keys are bringing their grassroots blues infused rock sound to Toronto at the Much Music Video Awards on June 19th. Fresh from their triple Grammy win, the Akron, Ohio natives have fashioned a career out of producing a sound that is distinctly raw and visceral in approach but polished enough to grab the attention of today’s finicky listeners. While coming across as purists who have stumbled on the big time, the Keys have been active for a decade but only recently tasted mainstream success with 2008’s Danger Mouse produced, “Attack & Release”. PS3 and X-box aficionados might recognize their tracks, “Tighten Up” and “Howlin’ for You” off the FIFA 11 and NHL 11 soundtracks respectively. The two songs are off their Grammy winning 2010 album, “Brothers” which has been lauded by even artists like the ever excoriating Liam Gallagher as being one of best LPs of 2010. Their performance at the MMVAs promises to be a treat for all those who like their rock bluesy, primitive and unfiltered.
