Queens of the Stone Age at Bayou Music Center, 2/9/2014
Given the Queens' history, all the feel-good hits may have to last us a while. While Homme has pledged that the band will re-enter the studio after this tour's conclusion, it wouldn't be terribly shocking if it's another six years or so before their next visit, and who knows what they might sound (and look) like by then.
Personal Bias: C-c-c-c-c-cocaine!
The Crowd: Pumped up, chatty millenials.
Overheard in the Crowd: "Oh, this is my shit! THIS IS THE SONG!"
Random Notebook Dump: Despite their preponderance of radio hits, QOTSA is all too happy to challenge their audience with some seriously long, shrill jams. Most of the audience was fully on board with that.
