Headlining the Rolling Stone party, the group rewarded longtime fans (including Jack White and Aziz Ansari) -- some of whom waited outside for hours -- with whip-tight renditions of the riff-heavy tunes off their 1998 album, which will be re-released by frontman Josh Hommes' own label on March 29.
Those diehard fans who stuck it out were treated to a greatest hits encore set which included fan favourites 'Little Sister' and 'Go With the Flow.'
But, as a hungover Homme kept on insisting, the night was about having fun and dancing, not industry.
As he illegally smoked onstage and drank vodka straight from the bottle, the rocker proved that, unlike many of the groups at this year's festival, he walks the walk as well as he talks the talk.
