SXSW Preview: Dan Auerbach @ Bowery Ballroom

4 03 2009

Dan Auerbach has his first solo album out, but solo is hardly how he presented his music Tuesday night in New York. Backed by San Antonio band Hacienda and Patrick Hallahan of My Morning Jacket chipping in as a second drummer and percussionist, Auerbach was clearly enjoying the give and take he perhaps misses with The Black Keys.

The music didn’t stray far from his Akron based two piece, but adding keys, a second guitar, bass and a couple of drums provided flourishes of color.

Openers Hacienda hung out in the subway tunnel with us before the show for a bit of chat. We’ll have a piece on the promising young San Antonio band soon. Those Darlins were indeed. They won us over and we’ll be chatting up the band in Austin at South By Southwest.
