Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme likely had to do some explaining to wife Brody Dalle, but somehow he landed a gig at something called A Night of a Thousand Vaginas! (The exclamation point is intrinsic.) According to the website for the Los Angeles theater Largo at the Coronet – where A Night of a Thousand Vaginas! will take place – Homme will appear at the event, which benefits the Texas Abortion Fund, alongside comedians Sarah Silverman, Zach Galifianakis, Steve Agee, Jen Kirkman and Tiffany Haddish.

Where Does Queens of the Stone Age's '. . . Like Clockwork' Rank Among the 50 Best Albums of 2013?

Parks and Recreation's Retta and comedian Laura Kightlinger are cohosting the show, which the reproductive rights advocacy organization A Is For put together. A Night of a Thousand Vaginas! intends to raise financial support to benefit low-income women getting safe and legal abortions in Texas. It will take place at 7:30 p.m. on January 19th.

Even though Homme has never been shy about indulging his comedic side – jamming with Reggie Watts, signing up for a Portlandia gig, chatting with Marc Maron, or suffering through an interview with Brit comic Matt Barry – he hasn't lost sight of his musical ambition. In the new issue of Rolling Stone, the front-Queen said the band will be working on the follow-up to 2013's . . . Like Clockwork in the near future. "We have more than enough songs," he said. "We're booked 'til September, but after that we plan to jump in the studio and get going."

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
