Alain Johannes has just announced via Instagram that he is due to play a free gig this Thursday (March 26) with fellow ex-Queen Nick Oliveri. The show at Harvard and Stone in LA will also feature music from rising star Edith Crash, whose latest album was also produced by Johannes.
Any QOTSA fans in the area with no plans for Thursday should definitely tag along — what could be better than a free gig from some great musicians?!
