I'm definitely on the record with my thoughts about Tool's lame-ass stage "show" but honestly I'm pretty excited to see Maynard James Keenan's new side project Puscifer at The Orpheum Thursday. Why? Well, this video should help explain, as should the article we ran in this week's paper, which explains Keenan's "variety show" concept.
Tickets for Thursday and Friday's shows here.
