ACL 2009 Day One: Them Crooked Vultures. Duh.
Rocks Off saw Them Crooked Vultures a little less than twenty-four hours after their pulverizing set at Stubb's on Thursday night. It was the same setlist, just harder and Grohlier. Meaning that Dave Grohl was seemingly taking out his demons on his drum set. John Paul Jones pulled out some sort of customized slide bass for "Daffodils", in addition to his assortment of eight-string instruments. Lead singer and guitarist Josh Homme even had a chance to tease the crowd with a ten-second rendition of "Thriller" before launching into another head-rush of a song.
