    The Black Keys begin streaming their Live at the Crystal Ballroom concert film for free on their YouTube channel for 72 hours starting Friday morning at 10am ET. The film was recorded in April 2008 in Portland, Oregon, and released on DVD on Nonesuch Records. "Crystal Ballroom is one of our favorite venues and has been since we first played there opening for Sleater-Kinney in early 2003," says the band's Patrick Carney. "It was built as a dance hall in the early 20th century and the floor was placed on these rockers so it moves up and down. Quite a cool thing to watch from the stage as the crowd dances around. This concert was filmed by our friend Lance Bangs, who we also met on that Sleater-Kinney tour because he is married to Corin Tucker."

    You can also watch the band's performance of "I Got Mine" from the film here:

    Rhiannon Giddens and Francesco Turrisi's performance of songs from their new album, there is no Other, at The Metropolitan Museum's Temple of Dendur in New York City from last fall will receive its digital premiere via The Met's YouTube this Saturday at 7pm ET.

    "This performance is both a condemnation of "othering" and a celebration of the spreading of ideas, connectivity, and shared experience," says The Met. " Tracing the movement of instruments, sounds, and musical language back and forth from Africa, the Arab world, Europe, and the Americas, there is no Other illuminates the blossoming that's possible when culture flows freely between peoples and lands." What's more, the unique venue "provided a stunning context for Gidden's virtuosity and raw emotional musicality."
