When high-school friends Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney jerry-rigged a recording studio in an Akron, Ohio, basement, they had no way of predicting The Black Keys’ success. The Grammy Award-winning duo responsible for earworm singles like “Tighten Up,” “10 A.M. Automatic” and “Lonely Boy” — and for popularizing the blues-rock revival — can be found on tour supporting their latest album, Turn Blue, a moody dip into psychedelic rock. While the record’s co-producer, Danger Mouse (aka Brian Burton, who played at The National in September as part of the duo Broken Bells), won’t be appearing with the Black Keys at the Richmond Coliseum, you can rely on an energetic performance on Dec. 6 from both the band and opener St. Vincent. 8 p.m. $37 to $78 through the Coliseum box office or Ticketmaster. 780-4970 or richmondcoliseum.net.
