Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney will break out his dusty six-string for the live debut of 10% Animal, his new project that's at least 80 percent rock. Says Carney, who plays lead guitar in this group, "It's noise, but real songs. Pop noise. It's a noisy indie-rock. I missed playing guitar." Since the band's impressive recording debut, the Asian Haze EP, it's grown from a duo to a four-piece and comes with an all-new set list, including two songs written in the past week. The other 75 percent of Animal comprises Carney's younger brother, Mike, in his debut on bass, ex-Strange Division drummer Dave Goddas, and singer-guitarist Gabe Fulvimar, who played with Carney in Churchbuilder. And while we can't vouch for the new songs, the last batch was 100 percent fun.
