    Video: The Black Keys on "The Colbert Report"

    Congratulations to The Black Keys: their latest album, Brothers, has just been certified Gold! The band stopped by the Nonesuch offices in New York City yesterday to receive their Gold records.

    While in New York, band mates Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney have kept themselves busy, performing on Saturday Night Live this past weekend and again on the Late Show with David Letterman on Monday night. Yet before they could leave the city, there was one more very important stop the two had to make, and last night, they made it, when Auerbach and Carney visited The Colbert Report.

    No breezy television appearance this, Auerbach and Carney were invited as "leading scholars on The Black Keys" to help Stephen Colbert fill out his all-important Grammy ballot on the last day of voting. They helped Colbert narrow down the choices for Best Alternative Music Album, one of six categories in which the band is nominated this year.

    While we at the Nonesuch Journal recognize the proper selection as an obvious one, Colbert chooses to complicate matters by welcoming Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend onto the show to offer his two-cents as well. Of course, nothing good could come of this, which we highly recommend you see for yourself by watching the segment below:
