Queens of the Stone Age & the Kills @ Barclays Center
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.
More pictures from Barclays Center, along with QOTSA's setlist and a couple videos, below...
Queens of the Stone Age at ACL 2013 (more by Tim Griffin)
Queens of the Stone Age made a solid comeback this year with ...Like Clockwork, an album which has ended up on many year-end lists, including NME, Rolling Stone, Paste, SPIN, Q, Mojo, Amazon and Rough Trade. We asked them to send a list of their favorite albums of the year. They're a big band, and their list mostly includes other big bands (and big solo artists), but it's also got a certain Jack White-approved compilation, and two relatively smaller artists, Earthless and Kurt Vile, so kudos to those guys for being QOTSA-approved. You can check out the full list below.
QOTSA's best of 2013 list below...
Another year, another round of band holiday sweaters. This year we can get in the holiday spirit by wrapping ourselves in warm, cozy attire from the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, Death From Above 1979, Descendents (again), Metallica, and more. Just like Grandma used to make. That's the QOTSA one pictured above, and the other three are pictured below.
As discussed, Queens of the Stone Age (who made Amazon's and Rough Trade's top albums of 2013 lists) will be in NYC for the holiday season when their tour brings them to Barclays Center on December 14 with The Kills. Tickets for that show are on sale now. Updated tour dates are listed below.
QOTSA's tour includes an Australia/New Zealand run in March with Nine Inch Nails and former Distillers singer Brody Dalle (who's also married to Josh Homme of QOTSA). Brody recently announced details of a new solo album (via Music Week), which will be out in early 2014 via Caroline. The record is set to feature contributions from Garbage's Shirley Manson, plus Warpaint singer Emily Kokal, Strokes guitarist Nick Valensi, QOTSA basist Michael Shuman, former Girls (and current Papa) member Darren Weiss, and more. And it's being produced by Alain Johannes, who's worked with QOTSA, Arctic Monkeys, and did Brody's Spinnerette album.

Queens of the Stone Age at Made In America - 9/1/13
Queens of The Stone Age just played the Jay Z-curated Made In America festival in Philly on Sunday (9/1), and like some of the other big names on that festival, they're coming to NYC later this year for a show at the Jay Z-affiliated Barclays Center (12/14). Since we last spoke, it's been announced that The Kills will be opening that show, making for an excellent double bill. Tickets for that show go on sale Thursday (9/5) at 10 AM.
Like we just said, QOTSA played the second day of Made In America over the weekend. For their 13-song set, they played mainly off of 2002's Songs for the Deaf and this year's ...Like Clockwork, in addition to a few others. Their full setlist and pictures from their set at the festival are in this post. Stay tuned for more day 2 coverage, and check out pictures of day 1 (part 1) and day 1 (part 2).
Meanwhile, both Queens of the Stone Age and The Kills have members in Jack White's supergroup, The Dead Weather (Dean Fertita and Alison Mosshart, respectively). Jack's label, Third Man Records, tweeted last week (8/29) that The Dead Weather were "working on new songs in the studio yesterday... (and searching for bodies)." The TBA third album follows 2009's Horehound and 2010's Sea of Cowards.

Hard Skin at Acheron, August 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro)
The UK kings of hilarious oi return to the US for a set of appearances on our shores, including known dates in Philly, Chicago and NYC. Look for Hard Skin to return to Acheron on September 12th, snagging support from Brooklyn punks La Misma (check out their demo) & Vanity. Ticketing information is on the way.
Hard Skin recently released their first LPs since 2004's Same Meat, Different Gravy. If you listen to them back to back, you may find that the pair of releases -- On The Balls and Why Do Birds Suddenly Appear -- are pretty similar.
This is a CLASSIC! Well, it's actually TWO CLASSICS! We got some of our sexiest lady mates round to the studio, got them drunk on cheap plonk, and after a few days we had a second version of the album recorded with HARD SKIN as you've never heard us before.Why Do Birds Suddenly Appear? features vocal appearances from Alison Mosshart (The Kills, Dead Weather), Joanna Newsom, Beki Bondage (Vice Squad), Liela Moss (The Duke Spirit), Miki Berenyi (Lush), Roxanne and Marion of Veronica Falls' and many many more. (Stream at Spotify and get your copies at Feral Ward.
All known dates are listed, along with a video for "Council Estate" are below.
UPDATE: new dates have emerged. Full tour schedule is below.

"The Kills at pier 63 were incredible tonight! Jamie Hince you are the king!" - @gibsondaniel
The Kills on Pier 63 - 8/18/12
The Kills wrapped up their tour over the weekend with a free Converse City Carnage show on Pier 63 in NYC with Black Bananas and Viva Viva (which was "sold out") and a show at Montauk's Surf Lodge the next day (8/19). The Kills played material off all four of their full length albums, focusing mainly on 2011's Blood Pressures, and also including a good chunk of their 2003 debut.
More pictures, videos, and the setlist from the show are below.

Metallica / Sigur Ros at Outside Lands - 8/11/12
Metallica's headlining set on Saturday featured lots of the band's classic material ("Master of Puppets," "Ride the Lightning," "Creeping Death") paired with a fair amount of pyro and endless shout-outs to San Francisco. "We're very grateful to be playing in the backyard of the greatest city," said frontman James Hetfield. He also noted that a friend of his who lives a good distance from the park told him earlier that he could hear the band soundcheck all the way from his house. "So we're not only playing for you," said Hetfield. "We're playing for all of the Bay Area." [Rolling Stone]The 2012 Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival continued on Saturday (8/11) in San Francisco after kicking off a day earlier (8/10). Saturday's portion of the festival gave us a headlining set by Metallica, who, unfortunately for Jonsi, Sigur Ros was playing their set at the same time on a different stage. Saturday also saw sets by The Kills, Explosions in the Sky, Tame Impala, Alabama Shakes, and more.
Pictures of day 1 are HERE. More of day 2 are below.
The Kills at Terminal 5 in February (more by Devan Council)
As mentioned, Montauk vacation spot The Surf Lodge is hosting shows (like the Dirty Projectors one in June) all summer. The summer is nearing its end, but there's still a handful of notable shows left taking place at the venue.
On August 11, Frankie Rose will play, the day after she opens for Little Dragon at Prospect Park (8/10). Then on August 18 it's Chairlift (who tour with The xx this fall) and a day later (8/19), The Kills will play, after playing their free Hudson River Park show (8/18) (which is "sold out"). As mentioned, Nite Jewel plays the Montak venue on August 25, and finally, Ra Ra Riot on September 1. More info at The Surf Lodge's website.
Stevie Nicks came to "CBS This Morning" yesterday (7/11) for an on-air interview, during which she revealed that Fleetwood Mac plan to reunite "next year, so far." "It's the plan. Because that's what we do. I do my thing. And Lindsey (Buckingham is) out doing his thing now." During that interview, Stevie also spoke about the recent suicide of Fleetwood Mac member Bob Welch, saying "I can't even tell you what in the world would have pushed him to do something that crazy."
Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham are both currently on their own solo tours. Stevie hit the NYC area a few times in the past month, including Beacon Theater and she plays tonight (7/12) at Mohegan Sun in CT. Lindsey's tour is ongoing as well, and it hit NYC back in June for a show at BB King's.
As mentioned, there's also a Fleetwood Mac tribute in the works which comes on August 14 and features covers by mostly indie rock artists. Since we last wrote, many of those covers have surfaced on the internet. 10 of the 17 total covers are streaming below, including Lee Ranaldo Band and J Mascis' "Albatross," Antony's "Landslide," Billy Gibbons & Co.'s "Oh Well," Best Coast's "Rhiannon," The New Pornographers' "Think About Me," Lykke Li's "Silver Springs," Karen Elson (produced by Beck)'s "Gold Dust Woman," Matt Sweeney and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy's "Storms," MGMT's "Future Games," and The Kills' "Dreams."
Those streams and lists of all Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham dates are below...

The Kills @ Terminal 5 - 2/11/2012
"The Kills' show [Saturday] night at Manhattan's Terminal 5 was billed as a 10th anniversary concert, but the band hardly acknowledged the occasion over a 90-minute set focused mainly on material from their two most recent albums. There were a few surprises particular to this show: They were joined by four additional percussionists in matching black leather and red bandanas whose drumming was more ornamental than audible, and they revived the seldom-performed No Wow gem "At the Back of the Shell." But for the most part, this was business-as-usual for a band more invested in their present than their past." [Rolling Stone]The Kills, no strangers to Terminal 5, completed their tour with JEFF the Brotherhood and Hunters at the big NYC venue on Saturday night. They also hit Letterman and The Standard while in town. The openers also played their own shows at Maxwell's and Death By Audio.
Here are the pictures from Terminal 5. More of them with the Kills' setlist, below...

In case you were wondering, no Slash (pictured above) is not in the current lineup of Guns N Roses that plays Terminal 5 tonight.
The Grammys, now overshadowed/advertised by the tragedy that is Whitney Houston's death, air tonight on CBS at 8 p.m. EST. A last minute Whitney tribute was put together for the TV show and will include Jennifer Hudson and Chaka Khan.
In related and also sad (no disrespect to Whitney!) news, Foster the People and Maroon 5/Adam Levine are performing with the reunited Beach Boys at the Grammys. Adele will also be peforming on the show, but Justin Vernon will not be (because he refused to agree to whatever horrible collaboration they wanted him to do).
As previously mentioned...
Bon Iver was nominated for four high profile Grammys (though not "Album of the Year" which is what Arcade Fire won). Adele & Katy Perry nominated for a zillion, and other nominees include The Black Keys, Foster the Peepee, Cee Lo, Duck Sauce, Robyn, Cut Copy, Skrillex, Deadmau5, Coldplay, Radiohead, Mumford & Son, Mastodon, Wilco, Death Cab For Cutie, My Morning Jacket, Jay-Z, Kanye West, The Civil Wars, Emmylou Harris, Levon Helm, Fleet Foxes, Gillian Welch, Steve Earle, Patton Oswalt, Louis CK, Weird Al, Danger Mouse, Memory Tapes, TV On the Radio, and A Tribe Called Quest.Speaking of a A Tribe Called Quest, Q-Tip was tweeting a lot about Whitney last night, including "Very blessed 2 have worked with n known whitney.. Man!!!"
The Kills played a 10th Anniversary show at Terminal 5 last night. More about that later, but you can check out the video from their performance on Letterman two nights earlier, below...

Death By Audio - Wednesday night - 2/8/2012
The Kills, JEFF the Brotherhood & Hunters play their sold out NYC show at Terminal 5 on Saturday, 2/11, a date that coincidentally (probably not) falls right during Fashion Week. If we had put two and two together earlier, we probably would have theorized that the band that contains Kate Moss's husband would be playing more than one show while in town. Who caught the invite-only show at The Standard last night?
Who caught JEFF the Brotherhood & Hunters (Uncle Bad Touch got stopped at the Canadian border) at Maxwell's instead? We didn't, but we do have a second set of pictures from the show they played one night earlier at Death By Audio in Brooklyn. They continue below...
JEFF The Brotherhood at Stubb's (more by Tim Griffin)
Jeff The Brotherhood are currently on the road with The Kills and Hunters. Check out pictures from both Wednesday's Austin show and last week's Chicago date. The tour hits a now-sold-out Terminal 5 in NYC on 2/11.
Don't have tickets to Terminal 5? Rather see JEFF the Brotherhood somewhere smaller? The band also have a pair of other NYC-area dates, both with Uncle Bad Touch. In addition to the previously discussed Maxwell's on February 9th (with Devin), JEFF & UBT will play Death By Audio on February 8th (with The Numerators). Advanced tickets for Death By Audio go on sale at noon, while tickets for Maxwell's are still on sale now.
Uncle Bad Touch welcomed their self-titled LP late last year via Infinity Cat. Check out a video for "I Wanna Love You" from that LP, as well as all tour dates below.

Eleanor Friedberger @ Crystal Ballroom
Almost a month before she heads out on tour with Wild Flag, and one night before she plays City Winery as part of John Wesley Harding's Cabinet of Wonders, Fiery Furnace Eleanor Friedberger will make an appearance at the Union Square Barnes & Noble as part of Upstairs in the Square with writer Christopher Bollen (on 9/22).
This past Wednesday (9/7), Eleanor shared a bill in Portland with Mini Mansions and The Kills at Crystal Ballroom as part of the MusicFestNW festival. A set of pictures from that show is in this post. More of them, with all tour dates, below...

The Kills, fresh from Lollapalooza, played two Terminal 5 shows with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and A Place to Bury Strangers. The first show was on Monday (8/8) and the second happened last night (8/9). The Kills focused on material off the recently released Blood Pressures, but also saved time for a few older cuts and a cover of Marilyn Monroe's "One Silver Dollar," which NY Times point out is from what singer Alison Mosshart declared Monroe's "worst movie."
Though not on the bill, BP Fallon, who played Escape to NY over the weekend, also made a surprise appearance at the Terminal 5 shows. According to Barbara S, he made "T5 a whole lot less shitty." Amber Kim says he did "I Believe in Elvis Presley" which is a Jack White-produced song.
We've got pictures from the first night. They continue below...
