Queens Of The Stone Age released their excellent seventh studio album, Villains, back in August. Produced by Mark Ronson, the album wields together the band's chiseled, Zeppelin-inspired desert riffs with Ronson's vacuum-seal tight production for one of their most tuneful, dance-friendly records. The band lands at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night, and Matador Records is celebrating by hiding some free tickets to the show around the city.
The Q train has been rechristened in honor of the Queens, with three sets of tickets to Tuesday night's show located at three subway stations on the line around Manhattan: 57th Street/7th Avenue, 14th Street-Union Square, and Canal Street/Broadway. You can tell exactly which stations/entrances to use based on which Q's have been replaced by the Queens' logo (see photos above).
Fans are advised to search the poles near the tracks—and you better move fast! The tickets were all still there as of 11:30 a.m., but no one knows how quickly they might go. As the band might say, feet don't fail me now:
