Queens of the Stone Age will play the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium at 8 p.m. on Sept. 20. Leave a comment on this blog post and you’ll be entered to win two tickets to the show.
Here’s a snippet from a recent review at thelantern.com:
It should not take more than a few listens to realize that QOTSA is a straight up hard rock band. Even with specks of psychedelic rock, punk and garage rock, there’s not a whole lot of room for embellishing the band’s descriptor. That said, hard rock’s often a genre into which your Three Days Graces/Puddle of Mudds/Buckcherrys get pigeonholed. QOTSA is not—I repeat—not that band.
QOTSA is more refined, with an actual sense of accomplishment. The band’s basic structure is that of heavy, driving tunes formed around a stern, prickled riff. Their sound steers past prog-rock’s vestigial jamming and length while maintaining its orchestration, then dives into an exuberant punk yet equally dark energy, a la Motorhead. Case-in-point: “You Think I Ain’t Worth A Dollar But I Feel Like A Millionaire,” “No One Knows” and pretty much every other song performed from “Songs for the Deaf” (show closer “A Song For the Dead” was a noteworthy one).
Would be a most awesome first night out post-baby, has been waaaaay too long and I love them! Thanks for the contest 🙂
