Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme is set to take part in an event called A Night Of A Thousand Vaginas.

The evening is being put on by reproductive rights group A Is For and will raise money for the Texas Abortion Fund. A Night Of A Thousand Vaginas will take place at the Largo comedy theatre in Los Angeles on January 19. The event will be hosted by Parks and Recreation actress Retta and comedy writer Laura Kightlinger and will also see appearances from comedians Zach Galifianakis, Sarah Silverman, Steve Agee, Jen Kirkman and Tiffany Haddish. For more information on the evening, visit largo-la.com. The site states: "A Is For serves as an ally and advocate for organizations working to protect reproductive rights; we are a unifying forum utilizing social media to spotlight issues and encourage activism."

Meanwhile, Homme recently said that his band will record the follow-up to 2013's '...Like Clockwork' later this year, commenting that the band have "more than enough songs" for a new LP. Asked by Rolling Stone if they'd be recording another album soon, Homme stated: "Absolutely. We have more than enough songs. We're booked 'til September, but after that we plan to jump in the studio and get going."

Speaking about spending time in the studio, Homme explained: "When it's time to make music, that's about getting lost for me. To be a control freak is not half as good as being a freak who's casually in control. You're feeling around in the dark for something that feels good. As long as you're not in an orgy, that can be an amazing moment."

Homme is also set to make a guest appearance on American sketch comedy Portlandia when it returns for its fourth season this year. The show, which is written and performed by Sleater-Kinney and Wild Flag singer Carrie Brownstein and ex-Saturday Night Live regular Fred Armisen, takes a satirical look at the hipster scene in Portland, Oregon and the various characters that inhabit the area. Season four of Portlandia will premiere in the US on February 27.
