blackkeyscolbert1 Video: The Black Keys visit The Colbert Report

Last night, while out supporting El Camino, The Black Keys‘ Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney stopped by The Colbert Report for a quick chat and a performance of current single, “Lonely Boy”. “Welcome to the Grammy club,” Colbert exclaimed, alluding to his own 2010 win, and the group’s multiple grabs for last year’s LP, Brothers. “Do you have any tips for maintenance?” Although initially stoic – Auerbach looked as outgoing as Ryan Gosling’s Drive character – Colbert snapped ‘em out of their trance with a few tongue-in-cheek questions. They discussed the new LP (“Why the hispanic influence? Why not The Camino?”), hoards of groupies (“I bet you’re beating them off with a stick.”), and whether or not the duo’s hometown of Akron, OH is the new Motown. Carney answered the latter question, offering one fun fact: “There are a lot of cheeseburgers there.” Who needs Yelp when you’ve got Carney? Anyhow, check it out below, courtesy of The Audio Perv.

Update: The band also played “Gold On The Ceiling” as a web exclusive.
