Dan Auerbach @ Bimbos

Rock and roll hoochie coo! Man, my musical stars were aligned last week. There’ve been so many good shows and so many more to come with SXSW merely days away, I think my head’s going to explode.  Dan Auerbach‘s show at San Francisco’s Bimbos last Friday was just another display of rock-n-roll awesomeness.  

Better known as half of The Black Keys, Auerbach’s solo endeavor is more of the same swampy, blues-tinged rock but, dare I say, even bigger and more dynamic. Whereas The Black Keys have that stripped down two-man band vibe, Dan has a 5 piece band supporting him (mostly comprised of musicians from the project he produced, Hacienda): two drummers, keyboardist/organist, rhythm guitar and bass player.  Wow!  I lost my socks somewhere at Bimbos.

If you’re going to SXSW and don’t have Dan Auerbach on your agenda, you’re a bona fide fool.  Pencil it in and make sure you pick up his new album, Keep it Hid.

  1. so fucking excited!
    but, I might miss him, as I have a 6:30pm curfew and Mean Eyed Cat is too far from everything else we’re lined up to see. bummer… but, we will see him… at some point.

    And… Hacienda is fun – hadn’t heard them before.

    Oh – and our spread sheet for Wednesday is about done… I’ll email it over when it’s complete.
