The Black Keys, consisting guitarist-vocalist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney will be in town on Sept. 6th with The 2nd annual SoCo Music Experience. If you have never heard them live, this is your opportunity to witness the raw power of this blues-rock duo from Akron, OH. I was fortunate enough to catch them the last couple times they were in town at the Majestic and High Noon Saloon and even in Chicago at Lollapalooza 2008.

Listen to Grown So Ugly from the album Rubber Factory

The Black Keys recently got the opportunity to work with Grammy Award-nominated producer-musician-provocateur Danger Mouse, a/k/a Brian Burton (Gnarls Barkley, Gorillaz, The Grey Album) and release the critically acclaimed Attack & Release (2008). MMR are fans of The Black Keys and will be at this show. You can't wrong when Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, and Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead are all fans of the band as well. Don't miss this free opportunity to see them in Madison.

Any info on a schedule for this? I'd really like to know what time the Black Keys are scheduled to go on.

Judging by the other SoCo event schedules it would appear that they would go on around 8:30 - 9:00PM and The Roots would be the final act.

Thanks, I guess that's something. Wish they would announce a schedule though. Just curious - where did you find schedules for the other shows? I couldn't even find those anywhere.
