Tool Show

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Kristin Joy, Oct 25, 2001.

  1. Saw Tool last night in Dallas. Holy ice skating Jesus...naked silver people hanging upside down from ropes in front of huge vid screens playing Tool graphics.....Maynard nothing but a black silhouette if front of spasmodic, acid-laced videos, screaming at the top of his lungs. Danny Carey is one bad mama-jama on that drumset. Intense. The arena wasn't the greatest as far as sound goes though.

    A few drawbacks: way too many chubby redneck girls wearing half shirts, and little poser boys going "punk" for one night. It was like Hot Topic had a sale in the middle of a trailer park.

    My man and I had a hell of a time though.....still wish I could've saw Crimson open!

    You mean this isn't about an exhibition of DIY and Garden tools? :( I thought this was Off Topic? :D
  3. Well I do work for Home Depot so I'm sure I can provide some appropriate OT yammering for that as well

    I went to the Dallas show too ! I took my son for his 16th birthday. It was his first indoor concert and I think he enjoyed it.
    It was an incredible show.

    My Friend Matt went to the show in Dallas last night, and he said that it was awesome. I may have to catch them when they come out this way....

    I caught the tool show when they were in Virginia Beach. It was a blast. The naked silver people were an interesting addition. I felt a little sorry for them because it was an outdoor show and it was cold and windy!

    Shouldn't this be in "Gig Stories" ? :D
  11. DUDES, the show I went to was the best I've ever been to. It changed my life, and I have a totally new outlook on music ever since.
