The Georgia Straight presents the Black Keys at Deer Lake Park
The Georgia Straight will be presenting a couple of unassuming white boys out of Ohio—better known to all of you as blues-rockers the Black Keys—at Deer Lake Park on June 27.
Long before they were picking up the Grammy for the best alternative album with Brothers, they were on our radar, headlining the Georgia Straight's first Straight Series concert back in 2008.
This time around the duo—vocalist-guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney—will be kicking off a Canadian tour with their Vancouver show, in support of that award-winning album (which we can't get enough of around here). Hope you were wise enough to listen to our sound advice when we told you all about the top albums of the year.
Tickets for the Black Keys, and openers Cage the Elephant, are priced at $45 (plus service fees) and go on sale Saturday (February 26), 10 a.m., at Live Nation, but Straight.com readers can take advantage of our presale, which takes place this Friday (February 25) from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., by going here.
If you're as psyched about this one as we are, and want to know how you can win a pair of tickets to the Live Nation show before they go on sale, create an account or sign in with the Straight and leave us a comment below, telling us why the Black Keys rock your world.
Thank you all for your fantastic responses, but the contest is now closed. Of course there can only be one winner and drum roll please.... Congrats Jessie-Mae!
