    The Black Keys "Austin City Limits" Episode to Receive Encore Broadcast December 29 on PBS

    The Black Keys are featured in an encore episode of Austin City Limits (ACL) airing Saturday, December 29, 2012, on PBS stations across the United States. The band recently scored five 2013 Grammy nominations, including Album of the Year and Best Rock Album for their platinum-selling El Camino, capping off a stellar year that included headlining music's biggest festivals and playing to sold-out arenas worldwide. The ACL episode, which originally aired in October 2010, is a prescient indicator of things to come as the band brings raw energy and steel-belt grit to tracks from their 2010 breakout album Brothers in their ACL debut.

    The Black Keys have spent the better part of a decade building a following through relentless touring and word of mouth to become one of the biggest rock bands of their generation. The duo of guitarist/vocalist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney has come a long way from their 2002 debut, attracting a huge fan base for their blistering live shows. In their ACL debut in Season 36, the pair reaches back to its earlier material to kick things off, and proceed to tear through soulful tracks from Brothers, the album that earned them three Grammy Awards in 2011 and made them a favorite with concert-goers.

    "The Black Keys are headlining festivals and arenas these days, but this performance—one of the last shows in the original, historic Austin City Limits studio—captures the essence of what makes their music resonate with so many millions of new fans," says executive producer Terry Lickona. "Little did they know, but the 300 people in the studio were witnessing history, and it's great to be able to re-live that day again!"

    The ACL episode also features Sonic Youth. For more information and to find Austin City Limits on a PBS station near you, visit acltv.com.

    The Black Keys close out this banner year with two performances at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, December 30 and 31.

"Daringly ambitious and full of joy," says the Evening Standard. "Mass exposure to his glorious, life-affirming American Utopia show alone would make the world a better place," says the Scotsman.
