On May 5th I was lucky enough to experience the Queens of the Stone Age and Mugison at the Odeon Event Center.
Both bands were simply great. I admit I went in not knowing anything about Mugison, and wasn't sure what to expect. Wow, what a band. They sounded great, and were really into it. The guitar player was impressive, as he seemed to really be feeling teh power of the crowd. I liked them so much I didn't hesitate to grab a copy of their "not officially released in North America" CD. I am not sure how I would describe the style of Mugison's music. Maybe it's better of not being labeled under any particular music category. These guys are just Mugison. They rocked.
The Queens of the Stone Age blew me away. These guys are simply fantastic musicians, and played hard. I am so happy I got to see them live. It's something I'll never forget. I don't have to describe them too much, as many people are already well aware of the excellence of the Queens.
The show was great, and I will definitely see either of these bands again if given the chance.
