Queens of the Stone Age has been going balls-to-the-wall since releasing its first album, in 1998. This spring and summer, QOTSA tours in support of its recent re-release of that 1998 self-titled debut. Over the years, the band has splintered into various side projects, including Mini Mansions and record label Rekords Rekords.
But the Queens' ragged, who-gives-a-fuck rock will be at full effect at the Beaumont. (The show is sold-out, but scouring Craigslist will be well worth the effort.) Those with tickets can look forward to hearing the band's first album played in its entirety, as well as a rich offering of rarities and B-sides.
Queens of the Stone Age, with the Dough Rollers. Wednesday, April 6, at the Beaumont Club.
