TVD Ticket Giveaway: The Black Keys at Merriweather Post Pavilion, 5/18

When I think of bands that are absolutely on top of the world right now, The Black Keys are a shoe-in. Ohioan Blues-Rock buddies Dan Auerbach and Pat Carney just graced the cover of Rolling Stone and are now on their 2012 international arena tour with English rockers Arctic Monkeys

Touring in support of newest and seventh studio album El Camino, the Keys will make a stop on May 18th at Merriweather Post Pavilion, and we have your tickets.

On stage, The Black Keys display a fuzz-heavy blues grandiosity and a grittily sexy complexity that begs to be seen. Between the two of them, they produce more noise than a single pair of musicians should be able to do, and it’s a phenomenon that’s made their live shows such a coveted place to be.

In case you missed them in town last week, everyone deserves a second chance. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 10am, and we’ve got a pair of lawn tickets for one lucky winner.

Tell us your favorite musical duo—other than the Black Keys—in the comments by Monday (3/19) at noon for a chance to win!
