It’s been twenty years since The Black Keys, from Akron, Ohio, USA released their debut album The Big Come Up. Meanwhile, they’re now up to their eleventh long player: Dropout Boogie. The music of the five-time Grammy-winning duo consisting of singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney is more varied than before, while their sound is simultaneously vintage and familiar. They bring a blend of blues, boogie, groove and rock, that pummels, perspires, rattles and steamrolls, and is ideal festival material. You can count on a spontaneous, full-on old-style rock ‘n roll party, packed with effervescent feel-good sing- and jump along songs. So basically, just let yourself be intoxicated by this dynamic duo for who – odd as it may seem – are taking the stage at Pinkpop for the first time ever.
