The Saturday, December 22 Black Keys show at Akron's Civic Theater is sold out. Shoulda got tickets when you coulda. "[This is the] first time playing there although we've both been going to the Civic since we were kids," frontman Dan Auerbach told Scene. "This is is really special for both of us."
If you have tickets, show up early to catch the set by Jessica Lea Mayfield, the singer-songwriter phenom formerly known as Chittlin'. Auerbach, who produced her upcoming record, will join her onstage. -- D.X. Ferris
