A Dive Bar Gets Rocked In The Black Keys’ Video For ‘Little Black Submarines’

By | 2 Comments

The new video for the Black Keys' latest release, "Little Black Submarines," is not unlike the video for "Gold on the Ceiling" in that it's basically just a beautifully shot and well-edited version of a filmed live performance.

When we last checked in on Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney of the Black Keys, <a href="http://www.uproxx.com/music/2012/06/the-black-keys-made-a-cameo-on-workaholics-last-night/">they were sporting ridiculous ponytails for a cameo on Workaholics.</a> So what are they up today.

The Black Keys Made A Cameo On 'Workaholics' Last Night


I haven't seen it yet but apparently last night's episode of <a href="http://www.uproxx.com/tag/workaholics/">one of UPROXX's favorite shows</a> includes <a href="http://www.pitchfork.com/news/46916-watch-the-black-keys-on-workaholics/">an unannounced(?) guest spot by the Black Keys</a> -- who were sporting long ponytails in court.

The Black Keys – “Gold On The Ceiling” Video

By | 2 Comments

Even though they already have a video for <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2012/02/the-black-keys-gold-on-the-ceiling-video">"Gold On The Ceiling,"</a> The Black Keys call for a do-over to give the song a different treatment.

If there's one thing we know about the Black Keys -- who are playing <a href="http://www.nola.com/ncaa/index.ssf/2012/03/kiss_the_black_keys_jimmy_buff.html">a free outdoor show in New Orleans this coming weekend</a> in conjunction with the Final Four -- it's that <a href="http://www.uproxx.com/music/2011/12/the-black-keys-take-a-stand-against-spotify-other-streaming-services/">they don't like Spotify</a>, or any music streaming service for that matter, and that the duo (Patrick Carney and Dan Auerbach) aren't afraid to say exactly <a href="http://www.uproxx.com/music/2011/12/the-black-keys-discuss-selling-out/">what's on their minds</a>, <a href="http://www.uproxx.com/music/2012/01/the-black-keys-trash-nickelback-in-rolling-stone-because-why-not-right/">especially Carney</a>.

Much like <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/the-black-keys">The Black Keys</a> themselves, the video for El Camino's second single is pretty simple.

If you're a person who creates things and, at any point in your life, someone gives you crap about "selling out," please do me, them and the rest of the world a favor by forwarding that person a link to this video of Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney talking about the upside and downside of taking money for their music.

A couple of weeks ago I was having dinner with a couple of music industry friends -- one who manages a few quite popular bands and another who founded <a href="https://www.liveset.com/">a startup that streams concerts on the web</a> -- and at some point the conversation turned to music streaming services like Spotify, MOG, Rhapsody, Rdio, Pandora, etc.

The Black Keys Killed On Colbert Last Night


I was just about to doze off last night when the Black Keys appeared on "The Colbert Report" last night to promote their new album, El Camino, so I got up, splashed some cold water on my face, fixed myself a cup of hot chocolate and settled in.

Considering I thought the Steve Buscemi-hosted episode of "SNL" was going to feature an appearance from Buscemi's friend, Adam Sandler, who would perform "Hanukkah Song #456," complete with a verse parodying the recent failure of Jack & Jill, I was pleasantly surprised with what actually aired.
