Just like Denver a month ago- it cost me more to see them in my own state in 2017. At The Gorge: add 2 tanks of gas, a camping ticket, and $100 in the ice chest. Even to see them at key arena in Seattle I’m paying ferry/bridge tolls, parking/Uber... it all adds up.

Now that I think about it, most of the Tool shows I’ve seen, I traveled to... and the cost of traveling is usually less than face value concert tickets. Plus, Tool is the only reason I have ever been to

Chicago
San Francisco
San Diego
Denver
Las Vegas

Traveling to see Tool is a shiatload of fun, for sure. I love it. Along with multiple domestic cities (Vegas, Phx, NYC, etc), I'll add Belgium/Brussels as a place I had not thought of going to before I made the trek to see them there. Worth every penny.

Re: General Tool Discussion

I was going to post that 768 miles each way is approximately $275 in gas and a flight planned in advance should be $150 or so, but maybe Lotus doesn't fly...

I suspect PNW will get a leg after Australia. Maybe they are waiting for amphitheater weather so they can hit the Gorge and RR

Yeah I would say that most of my Tool shows were not in the town I live in.

Mine too. Although that has much to do with their proclivity for not playing LA very often as me enjoying travel.

I have heard the fanbase in Germany/Belgium/Netherlands is really strong and the Aussie fanbase is particularly rowdy. I’d love to see a Tool show in a crowd laced with the nuances of a completely different culture.

Re: General Tool Discussion

Fun fact: One of my senior projects in culinary school was a food truck called “Vision Quest Catering” and it was designed to followed Tool (and other bands) on tour, setting up in the parking lot before and after each show... turns out all the licensing and laws that The Man enforces kept that dream from ever coming to fruition. Following Tool from show to show has always been a dream of mine.

I saw them on the roof of a parking garage in Tijuana. But that was a long long time ago.

It was pretty rowdy but also kind of nervous scary. TJ was a really adventure in those days.

The local cops confiscated EVERY SINGLE cigarette on the way in. I'm like HA cool no smoking.

Then inside the same cops had a table set up and sold the ciggys back to the group.

Lol.

This is how I felt at Knotfest 2014 in San Bernadino. Made me throw my weed away going into the campground, even though I had my doctors recommendation on hand... then there was a medical weed booth in the festival selling 8ths at a premium price. Disgusting.

Tool in TJ sounds cool, though.

Re: General Tool Discussion

Author & Punisher opening for next leg? I Put him on Spotify this morning... and I think like it. I guess he’s an engineering dropout that builds his own instruments to create doomy rhythmically layered industrial tracks. Distorted, grinding, pulsing, agonizing and at times climatic. Interesting. Similar feel to 3Teeth, but for some reason I like A&P a little more. We’ll see how he does in an arena setting.

Re: General Tool Discussion

Author & Punisher seems better suited for film scores. It's dark and creepy and would fit in nicely with a horror film.

Yeah. Not super stoked on this. I guess I'm happy for a fellow San Diegan but I may have to skip him.

Yay! Was hoping for SF but this will do.

Getting closer to Lotus!

The arena is walking distance from the airport in San Jose :)

For sure. I was planning Fresno -> Glendale but now San Jose -> Las Vegas will work much better.

Author & Punisher are much better than 3eeth - a different style of industrial.

FWIW though, I think the latest 3eeth album was pretty good

I do find A & P to be more interesting and less pretentious than 3Teeth.
I didn’t mind 3Teeth’s cover of pumped up kicks. After sitting through them in San Fran and San Diego I hadn’t really revisited them until that came up on my Spotify radio.

Looks like A&P are in Seattle next week with Cattle Decapitation. I may have to go check out his homemade setup up-close.

Re: General Tool Discussion

The producer is freaking out because they had to remove most of the iconic tiny-desk and the cubicle behind it just to get “the essentials” back there for Danny. The neighboring offices have to close early due to overcrowding and fans taking over the rest of the complex, and out of nowhere, a group of 4 guys start selling armfuls of poorly screen-printed Fool shirts. Nobody thought to dial back the fog machines, so they keep blasting the rented office-space with arena amounts of artificial fog bringing visibility down to mere centimeters. Normally, the staff/audience would be concerned but earlier in the day someone spiked the coffee pot with a heroic dose of LSD25 and everyone is just starting to realize the room has detached from reality and is soaring through a dimension of fog and shifting colors. The music cuts the dancing prism to give canvas for Maynard’s message. The set is a brutal 45 mins consisting of only 7empest, Undertow, Hooker with a Penis, and The Grudge. The station has been off-air for hours and the sponsor’s messages have just been playing on loop, but the NPR staff is nowhere near ready to regain control of their psyche yet. After the show silence fills the room as everyone is struggling to put their heads back together and regain control of their bodies. It feels like we’ve been gone for hours. The only audio recording of the performance was on the single microphone from the webcam that was rolling since soundcheck, however it’s video was completely masked by the fog in the room. As the room begins to air out, the scene of destruction is unveiled. A couple of the younger assistants lay giggling on the floor among the coffee mugs, staplers, binders, and other office-debris that got scattered in the chaos. For some, this was their first NPR Tiny Desk concert and it will take them some time to process everything completely. For others- They realize this was the wildest and most meaningful NPR Tiny Desk concert they will ever witness. They’re overwhelmed with a sense of satisfaction, completeness and understanding that this marks the end of their career. They can retire now, living a life of humble solitude and meditation.

Hey, no kidding! Death Atlas just secured my Spotify #2 slot. I haven’t put it down for a week! I’m not into a lot of extreme-doom-grind-blast-whatever-CORE music... Rings of Saturn, [classic]Slipknot, Lamb of God, Pantera, and Black Label Society with a couple more obscurities dominate the heavy end of my musical spectrum. With a name like “Cattle Decapitation”, I found it hard to take them seriously- at first, but then I put it on. I have a lot of metal head friends who expose me to some pretty obscure and small metal bands who all sort of sound the same to me. Racing drums, prolonged screams with inaudible lyrics, and so much volume and distortion that any tone from the instruments is lost in the noise. This is what I was expecting out of CattleD. Not quite. I gave it a cover-to-cover listen on my way into work and a couple songs remained floating around my head during my 13 hour shift. I couldn’t wait to listen to it again on the return trip. Yes it is all those things I expected, but it’s crafted in such a way that the songs all have their own identity, movements, and dare I say, emotions? Vulturous was the first stand-out track for me. The groove-core approach to the guitar is right up my alley and I love how the solo fits into the structure of the song- and the pause-BLAST transitions are fucking brutal. I am sure I will be learning to play this song soon. The vocals are also next level. Until I looked it up, I assumed there were two vocalists. He’s got a brutally low monster-growl, and then that high pitched scream that conjures images of a winged demon. What I really thought was cool is he double-tracks and harmonizes his screams, which is just silly... Bring Back the Plague is another top track for me. It starts out angry and driven, then it transitions into a haunting chorus that stays with me throughout the day... this whole album is just so well crafted. The artwork, the sound, the message- everything fits together in one cohesive package that makes me excited for both the future of metal AND the end of the human race. Lol.

For real, though... i haven’t felt this refreshed by something new that wasn’t Tool in a long time. I am very excited to see CattleD and Author & Punisher tomorrow night. Thanks for the push, Hellboy.

Not sure, but two people asked me what Mila Jovavich has to do with Maynard... I told them I’m aware of the comments Maynard makes about her in Blood Into Wine, and I thought she toured with Pucifer years ago. The interactions left me wondering why two people were bringing up something from so far back all of a sudden. Now this? Are they related? What do you know?

So I'm guessing it's not Mila. Not sure if she's considered A list at this time. Subjective 8 suppose.

But as you pointed out, she is a bud of MJK and sang with Pucifer (was lucky end to see her twice with them and it was indeed killer) since Adam seems to be 100% in charge of vids, I dont think he would incorporate someone associated with Puscifer.

Just my humble opinion.

I think the story originated on a clickbait site, so I could be total BS

If you saw her twice with Puscifer, then you saw most of her appearances with them.
I think she only did 2 or 3 shows. 4 at the most. I could be forgetting things.
She never did any of the Puscifer tours that I recall, only the Pearl in Vegas and Club Nokia mini-stands.

If I had to guess (and I do), I'd say they met through Danny Lohner.
Probably while working on a soundtrack song in the early 2000's.
