Nine Inch Nails/Queens of the Stone Age NOT playing Whelans

Contrary to what our Rob heard on Newstalk last night, the undisputed dream gig of the year is not taking place on the 1st October in Dublin's premiere Indie music venue.

Now no official denial from either NIN or QOTSA is present nor is it likely to be as it seems what Newstalk heard was the less exciting (although still intriguing) announcement that Jubilee will be playing in said venue at said date. The reason for the confusion is that Jubilee is made up of the session players (the ones who aren't Trent Reznor and Josh Hommes) from NIN, QOTSA and The Icarus Line.

The press release describes their sounds as sounding like "The Replacements, The Stone Roses, Neil Young, Blur, Jane's Addiction, Bob Dylan, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and The Verve" which seems like a very interesting proposition although not quite the Industrial stoner rock combo you might expect from a Nine Inch Nails/Queens of the Stone Age collision but doubtless they'll be interesting to check out.

Then again it could also be a mighty ruse and Trent and Josh will show however they'll both have to rush pretty hard afterwards as NIN play in Buenos Aires the next day and QOTSA play in California two days later. Cheers Newstalk for having me woken in the middle of the night with frantic phone calls from fellow bloggers. Lucky I heard about Jubilee playing or I would have been up half the night trying to find out the story.
