The Black Keys have a history of creating clever videos, but I admit when I saw this video for Lonely Boy I wasn’t immediately convinced it was the official video. About half way through I stopped caring - this was brilliant either way. Brilliant in a Mies van der Rohe “less is more” kind of way.
Tonight, as a belated birthday gift to my husband, we will see the duo perform live at Staples Center. I’m not sure why exactly I got Jeremy tickets to the concert. Maybe it was the fact that he turned the whistle portion of Tighten Up into his ringtone for months. We both enjoy the rock and roll music, so even though the venue is huge I have no doubt these two guys from Akron, Ohio will knock our socks off and make our ears buzz, in that special way only guitars turned up to 11 can.
