Puscifer, Live in Las Vegas 02/16/2009

Last night in Las Vegas, Maynard James Keenan’s Puscifer, the project he describes as his “creative subconscious”, made their live show debut at the Pearl Theatre in front of a crowd of 2,500. According to the SPIN review, the eccentric, electro-lounge industrial music of Maynard’s Puscifer was just a small part of a grand variety show that included a variety of over-the-top comedic visual accompaniments and a large list of guest musicians and performers such as Brian Posehn, Gil and Rani Sharone,  Milla Jovovich, and Tim Alexander.

Keenan is an oddball, and the three show set at the Palms Springs Casino that he’s doing right now with Puscifer is the way for any fan to experience this extremely creative (and unwaveringly theatrical & provocative) artist in his rawest and truest form. No video of the concert has surfaced yet, but in the meantime I highly encourage you to watch this brand new video interview the Suicide Girls conducted with Maynard at his winery. Among other things, they delve into the purpose of the crazy Puscifer, the unwritten duties of creative individuals, and his personal love for “the art of” winemaking. As he emphasizes in the video, he’s not content merely being just some rockstar or another guy in the band. To his end, MJK will be a 21st century renaissance man.
