Watch The Black Keys Rock PBS’ ‘Austin City Limits’
The Black Keys brought their blues rock skills to the legendary 'Austin City Limits' stage this weekend for a shared episode that also included J. Roddy Walston and the Business.
The Black Keys portion of the show was limited to six songs, and can be seen in full above. The band opened their set by digging a little deeper into their catalog for the hard rocking 'Your Touch' from 2006's 'Magic Potion' album. From there, it was onto the mega-hit 'Lonely Boy' from the band's 'El Camino' disc and the bluesy 'Weight of Love' off their current 'Turn Blue' album.
The latter portion of their set included three very familiar favorites -- 'Fever' and 'Gotta Get Away' from the 'Turn Blue' album and an epic set-closing rendition of 'Little Black Submarines' from 'El Camino.' Watch the full set in the player above.
The airing comes at a good time for The Black Keys as the band is currently off the road while drummer Patrick Carney recovers from a dislocated shoulder. Carney suffered the injury after being hit by a large wave while swimming in the ocean.
The group had planned to start work on their next album early this year and it is not known how much Carney's injury affected those plans. The group does expect to return to the stage after March 10, but all of their European dates through that show have been canceled.
