In honor of Record Store Day, which is today, here is a clip of Queens of the Stone Age performing during an in-store appearance at one of New Jersey’s most venerable record stores, Vintage Vinyl in Fords. The song is “My God Is the Sun,” from the band’s 2013 album … Like Clockwork, which came out two days before this performance.
Vintage Vinyl regularly hosts in-store appearances. Currently on the schedule are The Weeklings and The Grip Weeds, April 25; Dustin Kensrue of Thrice, April 27; and Silverstein, May 18.
New Jersey celebrated its 350th birthday last year. And in the 350 Jersey Songs series, we are marking the occasion by posting 350 songs — one a day, for almost a year — that have something to do with the state, its musical history, or both. We started in September 2014, and will keep going until late in the summer.
If you would like to suggest any songs to be included, please let me know in the comments section underneath the video. And if you want to see the entire list, either alphabetically or in the order the songs were selected, click here.
