The Black Keys in Toronto

We've been talking about The Black Keys on here from time to time, and personally I'm still hooked on their album Brothers that came out this time last year. The group's bandwagon is already starting to get full as people are finally realizing the potential of this group, with their songs getting picked up for big name commercials and games this year, like NHL 11 & FIFA 11. The Black Keys are a rare example of an indie rock group that has proven themselves in the industry a few times, yet still are still continuing to release great music. I recently came across a concert announcement for the group coming to Toronto this summer, and I knew this was the next set of tickets that I was going to be buying right away. The concerts on July 7th so you still have a minute or two until tickets are going to be gone, but I wouldn't wait too long because The Black Keys sell out their concerts and people say only good things about their live performances. The Black Keys will joined by Cage the Elephant, a group with some music you've most likely heard before, and they should do a solid job in opening up the Molson Amphitheater. Tickets are only $30 for lawns and $55 for top class, so fit it in your budget and get a ticket here.

I'm going to add in a part two for those who haven't caught the addiction of listening to The Black Keys yet, maybe you just need to add in a different genre to help the music suit you better. This was their logic behind creating the album Blakroc back in 2009, which featured great artists such as Mos Def, Q-Tip, Ludacris, as well as a couple of members of the Wu-Tang Clan, to rap over The Black Keys music. If this is more your taste, good news as there's a Blakroc 2 in the works that's said to host a couple more rappers you might of heard of, such as The Cool Kids, Wiz Khalifa, Jay Electronica, and Curren$y, so keep your ear out for that one too.
