Finally, FINALLY got to see QOTSA after listening to them for 20 odd years. They were my introduction to the rock music genre as a whole when I was an elementary school kid. Prior to discovering them, my music taste consisted of every 90s kid's: Britney Spears, NSYNC, Aaliyah, etc. Needless to say, I was HYPED!!! Probably the best live show I've ever seen. Hands down. Josh Homme sounds incredible live, it was like listening to a recording. Troy was so fun to watch on guitar too, his footwork while playing had me swooning LOL, I found it so fun and cute. They are all old men now but tbh I love them more now then ever!!!
The setlist was so good, a lot of hits and QOTSA classics were played as well as a couple of new songs off of their new In Times New Roman... album. The crowd interaction during 'Make it Wit Chu' had me tearful omg...Josh dedicated it to his best friend (who was in the crowd), the heartfelt chanting of the chorus by everyone...ahhhh it just hit me right in the chest. I felt so lucky and blessed to have the chance to see one of my longtime favorites live. My sister jokes that it's Old Men™ type of music but that's okay, like with everything my taste is all over the place haha. Speaking of Old Men™, the crowd consisted mostly of millenials and gen X'ers so I didn't feel out of place at all, but I was suprised to see a handful of zoomers.
It was so high energy and fun! I want to see them again. I nabbed a t-shirt and poster from the merch table.
Phantomgram my beloved. An alt indie duo that I have listened to since I was a confused kid in college. SO good live. They were the second opening act for QOTSA. Sarah Barthel sounded ethereal, something straight out of dreams. Listening to 'When I'm Small' and 'Black Out Days' took me straight back to those Indie Sleaze Tumblr American Apparel days haha!
I really regret not grabbing a Phantogram t-shirt from the merch table but that just gives me an excuse to see them again. Since seeing them live, I've been listening to them nonstop again.
I had no idea who these guys were prior to the show but they were fun! Super high energy, very loud music, super bright and flashing lights. The two singers were really cute with their on-stage antics. I had a hard time understanding the lyrics because their music was soooo loud—they have kind of a melodic/musical metalcore sound. I'd mostly describe them as like...experimental post-hardcore? It's a bit odd and hard to describe, but I did enjoy the show!
I'm going to be listening to more of their music so I can get a better idea of their sound.
Me: crying like a baby the whole night
I can't even describe how otherworldly it felt for me to listen to music that meant the world to me since I was like 7, live. Crazy....
1000% not my taste, but I had gotten these tickets through my old work place for Poopy. I knew none of the songs, but it was fun. I mostly just remember a guy next to us dressed up as Deadpool doing cybergoth dances for the entire show lmao
