The Black Keys will be playing a benefit show the day after Thanksgiving at their hometown's best music club, Musica.

Even though the Akron duo have been doing their separate things for most of 2009 — singer-guitarist Dan Auerbach released a solo album at the beginning of the year, and drummer Patrick Carney started Drummer with a bunch of local musicians — they'll get together to play a tribute show for Alfred McMoore, a friend who passed away last month.

Auerbach and Carney are calling the November 27 show the Wild World of Alfred McMoore: A Multimedia Retrospective to Benefit Community Support Services — a tribute to McMoore's artwork, which will also be on display that night.

McMoore had some mental illnesses and was supported by Community Services. The Black Keys' show will benefit the organization.

Tickets for the concert go on sale Saturday here. There will also be more expensive tickets available that include a signed CD, a T-shirt and a meet-and-greet with the band.

You can find more info about the concert here. —Michael Gallucci
