KCRW Presents: Hanni El KhatibKCRW

Hanni El Khatib plays a style of rock 'n' roll that keeps company with late nights, drag races and bar brawls. With his second album, Head in the Dirt, the L.A. musician enlisted Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach to help flesh out a fuller, richer sound. Watch as El Khatib plays a single off the album, "Penny," with a bigger band — and, of course, more amps.
