The Black Keys have a busy week ahead of them, their new album Brothers comes out on Tuesday (May 18), they’ll be playing a benefit show at the Housing Works Used Bookstore Cafe on Wednesday (May 19), then they’ll be opening for Pearl Jam at MSG on Wednesday (May 20). The following week is busy too, but it’s mostly all on the small screen, they’ll play Letterman on May 25 and Fallon on May 26. All of this, of course, is in addition to the free Kin show they played last week and the two Summerstage shows that they are playing in July.
The Black Keys’ new album, Brothers, is due May 18 on Nonesuch Records. In conjunction with the album’s release, the band will launch an exclusive pop-up store at New York City’s Housing Works Bookstore Cafe, one of downtown New York’s most vital community institutions. The pop-up store will be open from May 18 through May 20 only, highlighted by an intimate performance by The Black Keys on May 19 from which 100% of ticket proceeds will go directly to Housing Works, Inc., which provides housing, healthcare, job training, and advocacy for New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS. The Housing Works pop-up store will offer The Black Keys’ merchandise, including the limited-edition collectible hardbound book/deluxe edition of Brothers, otherwise available only on the band’s website: www.theblackkeys.com. A portion of the proceeds from all merchandise sold will go directly to the Housing Works charity.
