QOTSA to rock Belmont Army Surplus
UPDATE: Might want to check this out first if you're planning to rock out on Belmont with Homme Thursday night: Pick up the latest QOTSA CD, Lullabies To Paralyze, at any Chicagoland Tower Records location, and we'll [The Onion] get you V.I.P. priority access into this awesome event. For more info, visit any Tower Records location in Chicagoland. I left this out initially to avoid the gratuitous Tower and Onion promotion, figuring that the whole thing was open to the public and the V.I.P. pass from Tower would just be a way to bypass the lines or sit in the front row. However, Gaper's Block reports that a clerk at the store said that you must obtain a wristband from Tower in order to attend. Again, might want to verify this first before heading over there. Meanwhile, as far as I know, no purchase necessary to attend the Liar's Club 10th anniversary party with Eagles of Death Metal. ----- While they'll be rockin' the suburbs Friday night at the Allstate, on Thursday (10/6) Josh Homme and Queens of the Stone Age will be keepin' it real in the heart of the city. At 8pm, QOTSA will be doing a live in-store performance at the soon-to-be evicted Belmont Army Surplus. Then afterwards, Homme will dive into the nearest phone booth and transform himself into an Eagle of Death Metal for a special live show at Liar's Club to celebrate the bar's 10th anniversary. Belmont Army Surplus is located at 945 W. Belmont, right next to the red line 'L' stop...Liar's Club can be found at 1665 W. Fullerton, near the corner of Clybourn, Ashland and Fullerton.
