Puscifer, current band of Maynard James Keenan of Tool and A Perfect Circle fame brought an unforgettable performance to the Tobin Center for Performing Arts. The seats were filled and fans were sitting down anxiously as Keenan took the stage with the rest of the band to deliver a theatrical performance unlike any other.
Per request of Keenan, I can not say too much about the show other than a deliverance of powerful animated imagery and an incredible performance of luchadors and Puscifer. Puscifer’s current incarnation features members from A Perfect Circle and Ministry, as well as a female lead vocalist by the name of Carina Round. Keenan remains the sole permanent member of the band and considers it to be his “creative subconsciousness.”
Round’s powerful voice alongside Keenan’s together formed a cohesion of experimental sound complementing the booming sounds of the band. It’s difficult to lump Puscifer into one genre as they produce a unique sound and mixture of rock, experimental, ambience, and other genres that simply make Puscifer unique.
As the show came to a close, the audience roared and stood out of their seats cheering on the band. Keenan playfully said, “If you are good, we will play two more, if you’re good.” to the applause of those in the audience. Puscifer closed the show with an encore that left the Tobin Center in a satisfied uproar.
