Sunday 11/15

Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan thinks you’re all “insufferable retards”, but I’m sure he’ll have no problem taking your money anyway (unless you’re the guy who won tickets off of our Facebook, stick it to the man!) with his “other” band, which is totally NOT a side project, Puscifer at The Fillmore. Think twice about that 35 dollar t-shirt, kids. Click HERE for more info. And here’s a Tool video. Remember them? They were great.


Also on Sunday:

Virginia stoner/doom outfit Windhand rattle the rafters at Underground Arts. Click HERE for more info.



Kevin Hawkey is the co-founder, head writer and editor of Riot-Nerd. He enjoys Fighting Games, Metal, Marvel, Horror and all the weird shit in between. A lifelong Philadelphian just as comfortable in a circle pit at Underground Arts as he is drooling over the new Hot Toys figures at Brave New Worlds, Kevin’s idiosyncratic sensibility gives this site it’s unique dichotomy between “riot” and “nerd”.
