Dan Auerbach paid a pre-Easter visit to the Capitol Theatre the other night (3/28) and it was a truly staggering show.
Wearing a loose sport-coat and a white shirt, The Black Keys frontman’s set was filled with scorch and swagger as well as bluesy ballads and rootsy Americana.
Auerbach, who’s on his first solo tour in almost a decade, was flanked by his band The Easy Eye Sound Revue who backed him with authority and nerve.
Playing numbers from his new album Waiting On A Song along with a few tracks from 2009’s Keep It Hid, Auerbach’s material sounded rich and alive. “Undertow” was a blazing winner and “Shine On Me” was breezy and pretty much perfect.
Auerbach threw in a Fleetwood Mac cover as well as a number from Crowder and he played four tracks by Robert Finley, who joined him onstage as well.
Shannon And The Clams opened the show and singer Shannon Shaw came out and joined Auerbach mid-show.
