The Black Keys will perform a benefit concert at Musica on Friday, November 27th.
The evening is called The Wild World of Alfred McMoore: a Multimedia Retrospective to Benefit Community Support Services.
Alfred McMoore was a longtime family friend of both Dan Auerbach's and Pat Carney's families. It was McMoore who used the phrase "black key" to describe something or someone he didn't like from which the band derived its name.
McMoore, who suffered from mental health issues, died this past September but lived independently in part through the help of Community Services.
While the Keys perform in the smallest, most intimate venue they've played in locally since their Lime Spider days, guests will be able to go upstairs to the galleries and see McMoore's "outsider art" pencil and crayon drawings.
Proceeds from the show will go to benefit more than 2000 people who are treated by Community Support Services in Northeast Ohio.
Tickets for this exclusive show will be available starting at $50 this Saturday, October 31st at www.ticketweb.com.
A limited number of tickets will be available at different price tiers that include signed CDs, t-shirts, and a post-show meet and greet with the Black Keys.
