After assurances that there would, indeed, be plenty of Pabst and chicken wings, Akron blues-rockers The Black Keys will headline a party thrown by Scene
and its sister papers at March’s South by Southwest
The two-man team is hitting the road hard next month
, escaping the friendly confines of the 330 to scare up mojo for Attack and Release
, its new, Danger Mouse-produced record, due out this spring. (Sadly, no appearances by Cee-Lo
. But it should rock the kids’ Crocs off nonetheless.)
If you can’t make the fest – and you probably shouldn’t, since it’s in Texas, and sunlight is deadly until at least June 1 – stay tuned March 9-18, when we’ll post pictures and indecipherable dispatches from our drunken music critics, who fed us wine coolers and gasoline and somehow talked us into paying their way. The sneaky bastards.
Read on for the line-up and details.
