Q.) What are theees "Queens Of The Stone Age?"

A.) That'd be a band that makes hip-shakin' heavy rock 'n roll for adults.

On the second night of their sold-out stand at The Warfield, the red-headed sloe-eyed frontguy Josh Homme stepped to the mic between song and announced that the night before he'd been drunk as heck onstage and therefore "tonight, I'll let the music do the talking."

Danged if he didn't do that.

Backed by a road-tested band, Homme whip-sawed through QOTSA's canon: b-sides, quasi-AOR hits, and desert roadtrip rumblers were delivered fresh 'n thick in front of an amped-up Warfield crowd.

Fist-pumping, head-shakin', boot-stompin'; this is music custom-built for those rare, dusky nights at the bar that actually generate the best tales afterwards.

Plenty more pictures of the show after the jump.
