Pictures from the latest show are up.
The Rocket Queens, after taking a very long break between playing shows
to focus on their other "real" bands, and while Semen traveled
the land with a bunch of old Hippies who are grateful of being dead,
back in action. That's right, they are actually playing another show.
Assuming anyone even visits this website anymore, you can check the
shows page. Jan 24th is the day, so put it on your brand new 2004 calendars
as soon as you get them Christmas morning.
Attention! The Rocket Queens are featured in the latest (April 2003) issue
of Playboy on newstands now.For those of you under 18, or who are opposed
to the magazine for whatever reason, you can check out a scan of the feature
by click on the image to the right.
In the wake of the smashing success story, bassist Muff McKagen suggested
that the band milk their 15-minutes for all they are worth. In accordance
with that, we offer you these links of upmost importance:
10/20/02 There was a party last night that RQ played at. The pictures
from that party are up, right
10/01/02 October is here, and that means that the Rocket Queens are playing
again. If you don't have anything already planned for Halloween, mark
down your calendars to come down to San Jose and see the RQs with Plan
9 (Misfits tribute band.) Check the shows page for more info.
09/29/02 Rocket Queens played with Hot
For Teacher on Saturday night at Rooster's in Alameda. HFT were a
dead-on David Lee Roth era Van Halen tribute band. Super nice guys. My
camera decided to stop working after the first song, so I only got a few
off. Thankfully a nice gal named Suzanne was taking photos too, and sent
me some pictures she had taken of the RQ.
The Rocket Queens show at Kimos last night was great. Many a GNR fan was
there to rock out. Pictures
have been added. View them.
Rocket Queens are playing February 8th, 2002 @ Kimo's Bar (1351 Polk and
Pine in San Francisco) with Kill The Messenger and others. The show is
21 and up.
There are new mp3s up in the music
section. The audio is taken from the video
footage also on this site. So, go listen to the latest live recording
of the Rocket Queens.
01/02/02 If you haven't been keeping up, I suggest reading up on the
mail. There is some prime shit going on there.
12/07/01 The Rocket Queens performance on December 1st is now available
for your consumption. Get your Real Player ready and click on over to
section to check it out. By the way, we didn't put that flag there.
While you are on the SHOWS page, why don't you read up on the past Rocket
Queens shows, now that Slosh was finally sober enough (for a few moments)
to write down some hazy memories of those events.
09/20/01 I've been updating the Hate
Mail page, so you should check that out, if you haven't seen it for
a few weeks.
09/07/01 Decided to add a FAQ
(Frequently Asked Questions) page to the site, check it out before writing
to us, please.
07/26/01 Finally we have gotten the live video edited down into smaller
bits. Song sized bits, actually. You can now
check out an entire Rocket Queens performance (video taped December
2000.) Choose your favorite song, instead of waiting for the whole show
to download (as you had to do with the previous edit.) Many thanks to
Mr. Michael for encoding and editing down the RQ video!
06/19/01 Under the advisement of both Muff McKagen and Semen Handler,
we have added a Hate
Mail section for your reading pleasure.
06/17/01 Look at this a whole new layout. I hope you hate it.
Thanks to the Livermorons that made it out to the show last night. You
some fancy pictures, if you missed it.
