Maynard James Keenan’s Puscifer to perform in Portland in April 2016

2016-Puscifer-640

Puscifer, one of many musical side projects of Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan, will perform on Friday, April 8 at Merrill Auditorium in Portland. Tickets for this Waterfront Concert go on sale at noon on Tuesday, Dec. 29 via porttix.com.

The theatrical, irreverent 
Puscifer’s new album “Money $hot” was released on Oct. 30 via Keenan’s Puscifer Entertainment. The album landed at number one on Billboard’s Independent Music chart, number two on the Alternative Albums chart and number 30 on the Top 200. In a four star review, Revolver Magazine described the album as “a meditative and hypnotic – not to mention wholly engaging – offering” and both Crave and Kerrang placed the release on their year end, best of lists, with Crave saying, “The yin and yang of masculine and feminine energy interweave a pulsing eroticism that curls itself around the mind like one of Keenan’s many grapevines.”

Other upcoming Waterfront Concerts include Brad Paisley on Jan. 29, and Megadeth with Children of Bodom on March 23, both at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor. For more information, visit waterfrontconcerts.com.
