We’ll assume the latter is accurate; Josh Homme and the boys delivered their latest LP Villains to town with loud, sexy muscle, and an opening set by the mountainous Royal Blood proved a night for for guitar heroes of all kinds. Ben Stas was inside this arena of sound to capture some visuals, and you can scan through his colorful gallery below. No earplugs required, no orange cones necessary
