To celebrate the band's 20th anniversary, the Black Keys will release a special vinyl edition of its first-ever concert, taped at the Beachland Tavern.
The show took place on March 31, 2002, to a small audience. Back then, singer-guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney still hadn't reached worldwide fame; the Akron blues-rock duo was just starting to promote its debut album "The Big Come Up," which would arrive in May 2002.
The record release features recordings of "Busted," "I'm For You," "Do the Rump" and "I'll Be Your Man" on Side A, and "Yearnin,'" "No trust," "Them Eyes" and "The Moan" on Side B. The record is available for pre-order on the Black Keys' website, and it's set to arrive on Nov. 18. (UPDATE: The pre-order sold out hours after the record was announced.)
The show is one of the Beachland Ballroom's most iconic moments in its 20-plus years. Read more about the legendary Waterloo venue.
