The rock duo will put on a free show to honor U. Village’s newest resident.

In this tech-centric society of ours, the opening of the University Village Microsoft Store on Thursday, Oct. 20, is a decidedly important event. However, alternative rock fans in Seattle (we know there’s at least a few of you) will have reason to celebrate the following day, when the bluesy, eccentric pair of singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney – familiarly known as The Black Keys – are scheduledto perform at the store.
