SoundBytes: Puscifer, BoDeans, Styx and more
-- If you're trying to keep score of singer Maynard James Keenan's many projects, here's a clip 'n' save guide: Legendary prog-metal outfit Tool is his main gig; A Perfect Circle is the hard rock group he formed with guitarist Billy Howerdel; Caduceus Cellars is his winemaking operation; and Puscifer, above, is essentially an oddball solo project that has earned a cult following, in no small part due to its cameo on Mr. Show with Bob and David. Got all that? Then you'll be fully prepared when Puscifer comes to Fergurson Hall of the Straz Center on June 11 (two days after they perform at Bonnaroo). Tickets start at $32.50 and they go onsale Friday. Click here.
-- Can Styx live up to the daunting precedent set by Dennis DeYoung and the Florida Orchestra performing the music of Styx earlier this year? We'll see on June 3, when the group performs at Ruth Eckerd Hall. Tickets are $35-$79.50 and they go on sale this week. Click here for details.
