Do you like weird? Get to this show for a zany electronic-experimental freakout. Arkansas' Attractive and Popular mix more rocking with the bleeps and buzzes. Orlando's Yip-Yip is more pleasing to the ear, but no less bizarre. The duo is known for wearing matching head-to-toe checkered jumpsuits and other kooky accouterments.

It's hard to determine which is more enigmatic and intense, Tool the band or Tool's fans. The L.A. supergroup formed in 1990 and has acquired a cult-like following. Fans pontificate ad nauseam on the Interwebs about Maynard and Co. as if they were superior beings from a distant magical land, and they're not talking about Los Angeles. The group's phenomenal success, as evidenced by its super-hit album, Lateralus (2001), can be owed to an ability to be powerful but indefinable, morphing across genres like the liquid metal cop in Terminator 2. Throughout its history, Tool has blended in with the politically minded punk and post-punk grunge scenes of the '90s, all the while casting its spell on third-eye-seeking prog-rock fans and basic-black-wearing metal heads. Their theatrical flourishes and sprawling dynamic arrangements, brought to you live with an expensive light show, ensure a night of blissed-out, artsy-fartsy aggression.
