Holy shit, it was an amazing show! Most of ….Like Clockwork was played minus Keep Your Eyes Peeled and Fairweather Friends and they played their other great songs like No One Knows, A Song For The Dead, Little Sister, You Think I Ain’t Worth A Dollar But I Feel Like A Millionaire and hella other songs.
Josh Homme was HUGE in person too. I was only like 15 feet away from the stage and you could just see how huge of a man he is. He was joking around and being the awesome dude he is. He was completely humble about everything too. He kept thanking everyone and complimenting the audience for their support. Josh also almost kicked a few people out of the show because he saw the mosh pit and seeing people who didn’t want to be in it being shoved back in. Especially a few women who were trying to get out so after the song ended, he just said “Hey, this is San Francisco! It’s all about the love out here! Not fighting! We’re here to dance! Don’t rough house the ladies and gentlemen who are just trying to dance” and he was pointing to someone in the pit.
I got a few battle scars but I gave more than I received. I’m a pretty big guy and being at the gym has only made me a lot stronger, so when people tried to push me around, I pushed back even harder and they would just leave me alone. I just wanted to watch the show and not knock people out. I also got a face full of hair towards the end of the show which was disgusting. I tasted shampoo and other things.
Overall, seeing Queens Of The Stone Age was awesome! Being able to see them plugged in was a dream come true! And Warpaint was cool too. Their rhythm section was so tight that I was so impressed. My cousin and I are drummers and we were hella vibing to the drum patterns. They had a good set list. If they were to play in the Bay Area or anywhere I’m at, I’d see them. They performed really well. The drummer was pretty tight and laid down a solid foundation with the bassist, so I was sold.
Next show, I’ll make sure to stay away from the mosh pit.
