The Black Keys Documentary Will Be A 'Buddy Movie'
0
A documentary detailing The Black Keys "El Camino" world tour is currently in production with director Noah Abrams on the road with the band until August. The behind the scenes film will feature footage of the band on stage as well as detailing what goes on when the curtain falls for the hugely successful US blues duo. Abrams has been on the road with Patrick Carney and Dan Auerbach since last Summer and is hoping to preview the documentary at film festivals in 2013. Speaking to Spin about the footage he has shot so far, Abrams said: "A lot of music documentaries spend too much time trying to make people cool. I'm fortunate enough to know these guys pretty well and their relationship is pretty incredible and very funny." Adding: "We've gotten some amazing footage so far. For as big as these guys are now, they're still two guys from Akron. The comedy is usually endless with these two." Abrams documentary is currently untitled but a theatrical release is being planned. Thanks for the report to Gigwise.com.

    Maybe you should follow music news instead of celebrity gossip

    Man this band really came out of no where... I mean they're not BAD, just their popularity went from 0 to 100 in the matter of one single off their debut album. Somebody in the music industry really wants them to be the next Zeppelin or something.

    Where have you been? They've been touring the country for over 10 years and headlining main stages for the last 5. Theyve released 8 studio albums + several E.P.s, and you must not have noticed that at least a dozen of their songs have been featured on major commercials, TV shows, and movies. Not to rip on you or anything though

    The keys are pretty amusing they just tell it how it is, and instead of talking about making music they just do it, can't wait for this movie, Dan and Pat are too funny.

    The Black Keys are a funny bunch of dudes in addition to making good music. There's a reason Workaholics is having them as guests on this upcoming season.

    I love how they criticize bands like nickleback for being unoriginal when i cant honestly tell the difference between their songs until they get to the chorus. Practice what you preach

    In the running for worst live band ever. Also, in the running for worst band ever. Hipsters attack.

    every interview with the black keys on youtube gets me laughing out loud. they are hilarious and just try and make each other laugh. the documentary will be more of that. don't take them too seriously people. Pat "running his mouth" was simply him trying to make Dan laugh. He does it in every interview it was just not made public until they had a hit song.

    I didn't even know who these guys were until the drummer started running his mouth off where he didn't have any business doing so. Now I don't care who are they or finding out what they get upto

    Snobby hipsters making music for other snobby hipsters. Say what you will, I'll just never see what's so great about this band.
