Watch the Black Keys Perform ‘Fever’ at Mountain Jam
We’re still reliving last weekend’s Mountain Jam in Hunter, N.Y., and certainly one of the standout performances of the four-day festival was delivered by the Black Keys.
On Saturday night (June 6), the Keys closed out a stacked lineup that included Benjamin Booker, Shakey Graves and Gov’t Mule. The Akron, Ohio-hailing duo’s set pretty much spanned their entire catalog, but some of our favorite moments came from last year’s Turn Blue, including the band’s spirited rendition of the album’s lead single, “Fever.”
Now -- even if you weren’t lucky enough to make it out to Hunter this past weekend -- you can relive the experience right along with us by watching singer-guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney perform the song in the video up above.
Mountain Jam was among one of the first shows marking the Black Keys’ return to the stage following an accident that led Carney to sustain a shoulder injury.
“[Carney] says he feels good,” Auerbach said in an interview last month. “He’s been doing his rehab this whole time. It’s like a full time job trying to recuperate from that.”
Carney certainly looked no worse for the wear at Mountain Jam, and now the band will take their live act abroad for a show in Wales and Denmark. Then, they’ll play a string of dates in Canada before appearing at this year’s Outside Lands festival in San Francisco. Get more details on the Keys’ website.
