Back in Black

Matt Tullis
What started with two guys, a guitar and a drum kit has evolved yet again on the Black Keys' latest release, El Camino. The follow-up to the group's excellent 2010 album Brothers, which netted the duo three Grammy Awards, finds Dan Auerbach (left) and Patrick Carney once again refining their sound and expanding the boundaries of the blues-rock growl that lifted them out of Akron. Along with the infectious and ubiquitous single "Lonely Boy," the Black Keys embrace bluesy folk on "Little Black Submarines" and remind us all what got them here with the guitar-and-drums-driven "Hell of a Season." The band headlines the Coachella Music Festival next month, but first they'll make a March 20 stop at Quicken Loans Arena. $34.50-$59.50, 888-894-9424,
