ROAR did a bit of revamp and chose a diverse lineup for the inauguration. Jack Parow headlined with one of the craziest sets I’ve seen in a long while – featuring the whole front row of the crowd. He performed alongside Ohgod, Alive at Midnight and the CC Project.

QOTSA Tribute 2017 at Mercury

Thurs
6 April
2017

Last year’s Queens of the Stone Age tribute show at Manila was one of the standout gigs of the year for me, great energy and vibe and loads of fun. Unfortunately this year’s edition just wasn’t any of those things. There were some great moments but overall something was missing and I just didn’t feel it.

To be honest, even before the show I was apprehensive – in spite of loving last year’s show I wasn’t keen on seeing another. I know a lot of time and effort goes into the prep and rehearsal for such a production but I can’t help feeling (especially now) that the novelty of something like this goes pretty fast, and those energies would be better spent on new and original shows.

Here’s a look at the show, which featured  a rotating cast of various musicians.

I confess I’m not the biggest aKing fan, but I enjoyed their acoustic set at Cafe Roux at the end of March, mostly for the in-between banter which was really funny…here are some shots from the night.
