The Black Keys

When: April 30-May 1 2012

They haven't yet achieved a legacy comparable to the White Stripes', but the Black Keys are rapidly getting there. The Akron garage-rock duo's Danger Mouse-produced El Camino album debuted at No. 2 last December, selling more than 200,000 copies in its first week. And like Jack White, frontman Dan Auerback has shown himself to be a talented producer in his own right, working with artists like Hacienda and Dr. John, whose newly released Locked Down debuted higher on the charts than any album in his five-decade career. Based on rapturous early reviews of the current tour, their performances at the 1stBANK Center (11450 Broomfield Lane, Broomfield, 1stbankcenter.com) will not disappoint. This evening's 7:30 p.m. show is the first of a two-night run, with tickets at $55/adv, $59/dos, and the Arctic Monkeys doing opening honors. — Bill Forman
