I guess times are tough these days for ex-Queens of the Stone Age bass player Nick Oliveri. Apparently he played a gig last night at Mother's(?!?), a drunken Rush St. institution that...well, (to put it nicely) is not exactly known for featuring great music. Obviously, as a solo artist, he's not going to be able to draw a crowd even remotely close to that of a QOTSA gig, but of all the places to play in this town...Mother's??!? What's next, a gig at Excalibur? Perhaps a solo acoustic set at Bar Chicago? Sounds like someone needs to get a new booking agent! Keidra of local blog Enjoy and Exciting! has more.
