Tool Time

Saw Tool in Evansville last night. A damn fine show.

Set list:
46 & 2
Lost Keys (Blame Hofmann)
Rosetta Stoned
Wings for Marie Part 1
10,000 Days (Wings for Marie Part2)

Lots of extended material. During "Lateralus," members of opening act Melt Banana joined Tool for an instrumental freakout.

Slight problems: Maynard James Keenan's vocals were low in the mix, but for all I know, that may have been intentional -- he's not your standard metal band frontman. Also, this being Evansville, there were plenty of rednecks, hillbillies and other assorted white trash in the audience. My favorite was the one who started moshing during the slow, understated part of "Wings for Marie," which is a song about the death of Keenan's mother.

Hi, I have to tell you that I hate you. I hate you with all my heart! Watching Tool playing live is y biggest illusion and besides, something that can only happen every 5 or 6 years, considering their productivity gaps.
