The blues will never die - especially if The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney have anything to say about it, and the duo's ever-growing collection of hits is sure to thrill audiences at Austin's Frank Erwin Center on Dec. 19. Having launched the North American portion of the Turn Blue Tour in September, this winter date will serve as one of the final stateside shows of the trek before The Black Keys head overseas for the opening months of 2015. While acts like Cage the Elephant and Jake Bugg will be present as openers at various times during the venture, talented art-rock queen St. Vincent is scheduled to take the stage first for this particular performance.
