Upcoming: Blakroc 2

While the Black Keys were on hiatus a few years back, and Dan Auerbach was pursuing his solo project, drummer Patrick Carney was touring with the Ohio band Drummer. MOKB Presents hosted that band at Radio Radio. Carney walked in and told us he had something fresh to play during the warm-ups and intermissions. When Ludacris + Ol’ Dirty Bastard + The Black Keys kicked off the opening of the doors that evening, we all stood shell-shoc’ed. That night, I got Blackroc’d.

Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney recently recorded the the next Black Keys record, this time entirely produced by Danger Mouse (“Tighten Up” from Brothers was produced by the Mouse last album.). As soon as they wrapped, they headed back in to record Blakroc 2. This second go-round features Talib Kweli, U-God, Jay Electronica, OC, Curren$y, Wiz Khalifa, Jim Jones, Sean Price & The Cool Kids.
