She walked in and the party began. It wasn’t loud. It wasn’t quiet. It just turned up precisely the exact amount to put the room at ease: the whole room had a drink.

Nick Oliveri joined Queens of the Stone Age for the first time in a decade at Keller Auditorium in Portland to sing lead on “You Think I Ain’t Worth A Dollar, But I Feel Like A Millionaire.”


First concert: Aerosmith

via ouiser—boudreaux: There’s a dude here playing records and letting people choose from the crates he’s got with him and I picked out Aerosmith’s “Live Bootleg” because you can take the girl out of the cheesy classic rock faithful but you can’t take the cheesy rock out of the girl.

First gig: Teenage Strangers

via max-welp: Tonight was one of the best nights ever in my whole life, probably.

Imagine standing in a packed basement full of almost all of your favorite people, with an amp humming behind you and your best buds standing around you, ready to play a show. Imagine the whole basement echoing with cheers and chants and all yr buds waving little homemade flags that have yr band’s name on it. Imagine everyone going bananas while you play, jumping and pushing and moving and smiling.

I can’t even begin to describe how great it felt up there tonight. I am so unbelievably grateful for all the love and support of my buds and for the opportunity to play music with and for people I look up to and admire.

I will never ever forget tonight.
