    The Black Keys closed out the spring leg of their North American arena tour over the weekend with a shows at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland, on Friday and helped inaugurate the newly opened Revel Ovation Hall in Atlantic City on Saturday.

    Punch Brothers, who recently recorded an episode of the Austin City Limits TV show to be aired in the show’s upcoming season on PBS, pick up their US tour again with a performance at the Appalachian Uprising festival in Scottstown, Ohio, on June 2. It's one of a number of festival dates on the band's schedule, both in the US—Bonnaroo, Clearwater, Telluride, ROMP, Grey Fox, RockyGrass, FloydFest, and Newport—and in Europe, including Roskilde, North Sea Jazz, Latitude, Larmer Tree, and Hard Rock Calling, in addition to their own headline shows as well as a set supporting Wilco at Red Rocks.
