    Video: The Black Keys Play "Saturday Night Live"

    The Black Keys got the new year off to a rocking good start as musical guests on the first Saturday Night Live episode of the year over the weekend, with Jim Carrey as host. The band played two songs off their Grammy-nominated Nonesuch album Brothers: "Howlin' for You" and "Tighten Up," which is up for Grammys for Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance.

    Twenty-Four Bit calls Saturday's show a "much-deserved victory lap" for the album's success. HitFix wrote of the onstage surroundings when the band played: "Just a bare stage in this case, which is all that’s needed when the music is this good."

    You can watch the band's Saturday Night Live performances here:

    "Howlin' for You"


    "Tighten Up"


    There's more TV time to come as the band performs "Howlin' for You" on the Late Show with David Letterman on CBS tonight. Also on the show: Bill Cosby and the inimitable Snooki, from MTV's Jersey Shore. Tune in at 11:35 PM ET tonight.

    But wait, there's more! The Black Keys' set for the long-running PBS performance show Austin City Limits airs on PBS stations across the US on Saturday, January 22, at 9 PM ET/PT. Also on the show are Sonic Youth. Austin City Limits describes the episode as a look at "the evolution of electric guitar music." You can get a sneak preview of the performances in the promo below. You can watch the band's Austin City Limits performance of "Tighten Up," see photos from the show, and find out where and when it's airing on a PBS station near you at austincitylimits.org.
