As an official sponsor for Record Store Day, which takes place nationally on April 20 and celebrates the culture surrounding still-standing indie record stores, Warner Bros. are rolling out limited edition vinyl treats from artists like the Black Keys, the Flaming Lips and Tegan and Sara.
The 55th annual Grammy Awards have come and gone and rock artists certainly claimed their fair share of trophies. Big winners included blues duo the Black Keys, post-Format alt/pop rockers fun., GRD favorites Halestorm and more.
The Black Keys, already enjoying a big Grammy night winning three statues before the actual telecast and Best Rock Performance during the televised ceremony, carried over the good times to the Staples Center concert stage Sunday night (Feb. 10) at the 2013 Grammy Awards.
The Black Keys may allow some of their music to be used in commercials, but the band isn't exactly thrilled that another company has been using a track that is similar to one of their songs. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the group has accused casino operator Pinnacle Entertainment of improper usage and has filed a lawsuit to stop it.
The Black Keys were one of the top nominees when the Grammy Award nominations were announced last month and the band has confirmed they will take the stage to perform at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards on Feb. 10 in Los Angeles.
The Grammys aren't the only major awards musicians can win. There's also the Academy Award for the Best Original Song in a film, and Arcade Fire, Adele and the Black Keys have made the shortlist of 75 artists up for that prestigious honor.
