The Black Keys

The Black Keys are playing one of those free but exclusive Jack Daniel's shows at Skully's, 1151 N. High St. In order to score tickets, you had to either win them at Skully's events over the past few weeks or get a hookup from somebody with connections. They give away free booze and a popular indie rock band plays an intimate club set. Previous engagements have included Spoon and The Walkmen, though I think it's safe to say the Keys are the biggest band to play one of these yet. The Other Girls, a recent addition to Keys drummer Pat Carney's superb Audio Eagle label, will open.

Also, if you like self-parodic metal jamz, Dragonforce is at the Newport, 1722 N. High St. Tickets are $20, doors open at 7 p.m. and Cynic will open.
