Queens of the Stone Age & the Kills @ Barclays Center

The Kills

As the house lights dimmed and a giant screen projected a 60-second countdown for fans to anticipate the arrival of Queens, they strolled on stage with instruments and drinks in hand and ripped it from the get-go. Opening with “You Think I Ain’t Worth A Dollar, But I Feel Like A Millionaire,” and then jumping right into “No One Knows,” to the first ...Like Clockwork single, “My God is the Sun,” they managed to extend each song a bit by jamming and feeding off each other’s playing as if they were an improv jazz group that were using roaring guitars and thick bass rather than trumpets and saxophones. “We were in Boston last night,” singer Josh Homme told the crowd, which was met with a chorus of boos, “Boston has a lot of rules. This is New York City, you have no rules. You are at a Queens show, you can do whatever you want,” he said just before going into “Burn the Witch.” It is with that mentality that has gotten Queens the respect they deserve over the years. They are one of the few rock and roll bands, that still know how to be rock stars. They may not be trashing hotel rooms or discussing their womanizing, but they can surely play as hard as they want and encourage their audience to live as hard as they want. [Huffington Post]

Queens of the Stone Age have had a big comeback year with …Like Clockwork, the long-awaited followup to 2007’s Era Vulgaris which reunited many of the musicians who were on the mega-popular Songs for the Deaf and ended up on many Best of 2013 lists, as well as being nominated for a Grammy. Around the time of its release, they played an intimate Brooklyn show at Brooklyn Masonic Temple, but over the weekend (12/14) they had their real victory lap when they headlined the Barclays Center. Their friends The Kills opened, and pictures of both bands are in this post.

QOTSA also recently told us their favorite albums of 2013, and in other related news, both QOTSA and The Kills have members in The Dead Weather, who just released a new song.
