Black Keys guitarist Dan Auerbach likes to put a fine pop shine on pretty much everything he records. He’s got a new album out of original songs, full of seductive pop hooks, and written by songwriter royalty like John Prine. But he’s also producing other artists, including the terrifically funky veteran bluesman Robert Finley, who had been supporting himself as a carpenter in his hometown of Bernice, Louisiana.

Auerbach put together a touring show of his most recent works that he calls the Easy Eye Sound Review. It features Finley and top musicians, all with a keen taste for oldies and R&B. They’re loose, and I think they’re better live than on record. Also on the bill is Oakland’s Shannon and the Clams, who mix garage rock, surf, and doo-wop with a hint of the weird.

Details for Auerbach’s show at The Fillmore Feb. 14 and 15 are here.
