Queens of the Stone Age

Hard to believe it’s been seven years since Queens of the Stone Age last played in Minnesota, given the band’s storied local history, going back to its 400 Bar gig with Dave Grohl on drums (2002) and its so-called Duluth Tour (2007). The groove-metal wizard of the California desert, Josh Homme, and his always-tight crew did not disappoint with their long-awaited sixth album, “... Like Clockwork.” Fans probably need not worry about the Wilkins’ notorious acoustics drowning out the album’s loud and heavy mojo. Fellow Golden State opener Chelsea Wolfe might be recognized from the trailer for this season’s “Game of Thrones.” Chris Riemenschneider
