I must say The Black Keys and Dan Auerbach always have cool tour posters.
Hopefully Dan will have posters for sale at his upcoming gig I’ll be going to.
Below are a couple of variations on Dan’s recent graphic theme.
A lot of people buy Black Keys merchandise. Often a higher price is attached to goods if it has Dan and Pat’s autograph on it.
Having said that, I doubt anyone would pay for a used Black Keys concert ticket with their signatures on it.
If you are buying something purporting to have been signed by The Black Keys you can now compare the squiggles with the examples below.
Hmm, I’m pretty sure the scribble on the left of the ticket is Pat’s and the one on the left is Dan’s.
If you were buying some Black Keys merchandise, would you pay more for their signature on the goods?
If you’ve ever wanted to know what Dan Auerbach’s guitar pick looks like, well, here it is.
There’s probably a few guitar pick spotters who will appreciate this close up.
Even though I don’t play the guitar I’m pretty chuffed to have it. I have it due to luck more than anything else.
A guy seated next to me at the recent Melbourne gig had asked a roadie for the spare Gomez guitar picks after their set. He threw one over. The guy was stoked.
After the Black Keys gig, the same guy yelled out to the Black Keys roadie (whose name I would later learn is Mattrix) for a guitar pick. The kind soul that he is threw 2 picks in our direction. I caught one and the other dropped between the front row of seats and the stage, down into what would normally be an orchestra pit, far out of reach. I was now stoked, and the other guy was unhappy.
I suppose I can never say that Dan actually played with this particular pick, but it certainly was in his available rack.
I always look forward to Black Keys live concerts, not only to see the band live but because it’s an opportunity to pick up some new Black Keys merchandise. It feels way more righteous buying it from the show than from an anonymous website.
More importantly tour t-shirts with tour dates generally are only ever sold at live shows.
This shirt adds to my collection of Black Keys clothing merchandise.
Below I’ve recorded the front and back of the tour t-shirt for the recently ended Black Keys world tour.
ATAC SI ELIBERARE is of course Romanian for “Attack and Release”.
