Thurs., Jan. 28 -- Nick Oliveri (ex-QOTSA / Kyuss), Royal Thunder, Can Can, Spirits & the Melchizedek Children. Since being ousted from Queens of the Stone Age in 2004, bassist Nick Oliveri has appeared alongside several acts, including Turbonegro, the Knives, and his own group, Mondo Generator. These days he does the solo acoustic thing, but he's not aping the sensitive songwriter shtick. His latest offering, Death Acoustic, is filled with brutal strumming that's lead by his naked, and somewhat psychotic yowl. When he sings I do crystal methane by the boatload in his cover of GG Allin's "Outlaw Scumfuc," it doesn't sound like he's making it up. On Thurs., Jan 28 Royal Thunder, CanCan and Spirits and the Melchizedek Children open. $10. 9 p.m. Lenny's, 486 Decatur St. 404-577-7721.

Yes, 14 is the correct answer. I'll pass your info along to the group's manager,…
That was January of 2007, and they are 21 now, so I'm guessing 14?
