The Black Keys' 2008 concert DVD reflects the no frills genius of the drums-and-guitar duo's studio sound: It's a refreshingly straight forward video document of their April 4, 2008 sold-out gig at Portland, Oregon's Crystal Ballroom, featuring 17 songs culled from all five of the pair's albums. Director Lance Bangs(past videos for Arcade Fire, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Sonic Youth, R.E.M.'s Road Movie) keeps his small camera crew focused on the stage, getting up close and sweaty with guitarist-singer Dan Auerbach and indefatigable drummer Patrick Carney.
This concert release captures The Black Keys performing well over a dozen of their songs including "Your Touch," "Strange Times," "Remember When," "Stack Shot Billy," and "All You Ever Wanted." ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
