ROCK | Queens of the Stone Age 

To paraphrase Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme, his band's style is all about taking a "solid groove and pummeling it into your head." That formula was used on catchy anthems like "3's & 7's," a quirky, sharp, heavy tune that would be a comfortable fit on any alternative rock playlist. Homme's recovery from a near death experience may have inspired QOTSA to evolve with its latest album — and first ever number one on the Billboard charts — "...Like Clockwork." Even though it comes close to sounding like glam rock with some piano-driven songs, QOTSA's grinding guitar riffs can still make you feel like, sort of, dancing. Unlocking The Truth, Brody Dalle open.

Queens of the Stone Age performs on Friday, July 18, at the Main Street Armory, 900 East Main Street. 8 p.m. $37.50-$45. Rochestermainstreetarmory.com; Qotsa.com.
