The Black Keys

Akron, Ohio’s The Black Keys are playing at Mississippi Nights this Saturday, December 2nd, with Dr. Dog. Unfortunately, I will be out of town this weekend at a wedding, but if you are into The Black Keys brand of raw and dirty bluespunksoulfunk-inspired rock, you’ll definitely want to check the show out. Dr. Dog play lo-fi indie pop in the vein of Guided By Voices or Olivia Tremor control and have opened previsouly for My Morning Jacket and M Ward.

Be sure to listen to 88.1 KDHX at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday to hear Dr. Dog perform live in the KDHX studio on Coin Operated Radio, before their show at Mississippi Nights. You can listen online here and on the FM dial at 88.1 FM in the St. Louis area.
