The Black Keys

There’s no stopping The Black Keys. Ever since Brothers flew up the charts in 2010, the band’s become one of the most important names in contemporary blues rock, and it’s a reputation well-deserved. The Keys’ newest LP Turn Blue builds on the momentum of Brothers and its follow-up El Camino, while also stretching into more psychedelic directions. Just look at the mind-bending cover for the most obvious example.

The Keys roll through the BMO Harris Bradley Center this week, with Cage the Elephant opening. At 1001 N. 4th St., Milwaukee. Tickets range from $32 to $70, and can be purchased at 414-227-0400 or

8 p.m. on Tues., Sept. 9
