Sasquatch 2014, Day 3: Queens of the Stone Age

photos by Matthew B. Thompson

In recent years, the Gorge has hosted some incredible singalongs: “Skinny Love”, “Seven Nation Army”, “Where It’s At”, and “Wake Up” have all been shouted by 15,000+ people in unison to make a you-had-to-be-there festival moment. As great as all of those are, there’s something special about listening to 15,000+ people sing “Nicotine, Valium, Vicodin, marijuana, ecstasy, and alcohol” is in a league of its own, and that’s exactly what happened during Queens of the Stone Age‘s festival-closing set on Sunday night at Sasquatch. Even if you weren’t on any of the aforementioned drugs (or one not mentioned), it was an unforgettable moment. (Unless, as frontman Josh Homme noted, you were on all of the aforementioned substances.) The tour behind …Like Clockwork is coming to an end at the end of the summer, and since it began almost a year ago, it’s been one mind-blowing show after another as QOTSA have re-established themselves as one of the live circuit’s most consistently great bands. Sunday night was no exception, and if you didn’t catch them on their year-long crusade to remind everyone just how badly they were missed in their absence, don’t wait to buy tickets for their next show.
