South Florida Concert Update: The Black Keys Thunder Into Town, Kevin Barnes visits Lake Worth

On the heels of its release of one of year's best albums, alternative bluesmen, The Black Keys, has joined the southern swing of the Kings of Leon tour and is bringing the best rock show of the summer to South Florida.

Friday night, September 17th, at the Cruzan Amphitheater will feature some of the best rock out there, anywhere. The Akron-based The Black Keys - singer-guitarist Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney on drums - will be joining After Hours favorites, The Whigs and Kings of Leon. The prospect of this show may be the only way to survive this too unbelievably hot summer.

In the meantime, I'll keep listening to their breakthrough album, Brothers. Muscle Shoals, where the album was recorded, has left its patented swamp feel to this outstanding recording. If my iPod had grooves, I would have worn them out with this album.

Lake Worth is looking to jump start the area concert business with its own festival - the First Annual Lake Worth It festival. To be held in Bryant Park, Of Montreal's Kevin Barnes will headline a bevy of bands including local guitar hero, John Ralston. Buying now instead at the gates for the August 7th festival will save you a sawbuck.

Also, Billy Corgan and his whoever he is hanging with has sold out the Revolution. Fanboys can still try StubHub. Vampire Weekend returns to the Fillmore in Miami Beach on October 13 - a safe distance after hurricane season. Tickets on sale today for the general admission show.
