Puscifer 

If there's one thing Maynard James Keenan is not particularly keen on (other than that pun) it's people bringing up his legendary alt-metal act Tool when he's trying to talk about his sophomoric comedy-rock troupe Puscifer, and with good reason. Though tracks on albums such as "'V' Is for Vagina" and "Conditions of My Parole" share a clear musical kinship to his previous heavy hitting bands Tool and maybe, especially, A Perfect Circle, Puscifer's raucous stage show — featuring a cast of characters like Major Douche and Peter Merkin — seems more heavily influenced by Keenan's time with performance art weirdos Green Jellÿ. The video for “Money Shot,” the title track for Puscifer's latest, features luchador masks and all the seriousness you might expect from a band that started life in a Mr. Show sketch. $34.50-$375, 7:30pm, Tobin Center, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624
