You might not know the name Nick Oliveri, but chances are he's been in one of your favorite bands. Arguably the most important group on his résumé is the mighty Kyuss, which remains one of the strongest, most definitive bands within the otherwise nebulous "stoner-rock" genre. After Kyuss split in 1995, Oliveri hopped all over the West Coast desert scene, and joined (or established) essential outfits such as the Dwarves, Mondo Generator and Queens of the Stone Age. Oliveri now splits his time between new band the Knives and his gigs as a fill-in singer, bassist and guitarist for artists such as Mark Lanegan and Turbonegro, although this current tour is an acoustic one. Expect to hear favorites from all of his old bands and cuts from his solo debut, Demolition Day.
