Tool frontman's side project to play gig in Seattle

Maynard James Keenan's side project, Puscifer, is finally back with a new album, "Condition of My Parole."
Keenan is better known as the frontman for Tool and A Perfect Circle.
The Puscifer gig is, "the space where my id, ego and anima all come together to exchange cookie recipes," Keenan said.
It started out in 1995 as a sketch on "Mr. Show," an HBO comedy series. Since then he's toured and recorded under the name, often with a changing cast of musicians.
As Blogcritics.org said, the latest incarnation is, "electronica, rock, industrial, alternative and Southern rock."
The good news is that Puscifer seems to have stoked Keenan's creativity. Tool just announced its first recording in five years.
Catch Keenan and Puscifer at 8 p.m. Monday at The Paramount, 911 Pine St., Seattle.
Tickets are $21.25 to $45.75 at www.stgpresents.org or 877-784-4849.

Evan Dando and The Lemonheads burst onto the music scene way back in 1986.
I remember this well. Evan was a couple of years ahead of me at my middle school, and for a while we all basked in his glory.
The Lemonheads made it big with "It's a Shame About Ray," and a new recording of Simon & Garfunkel's "Mrs. Robinson."
Today, Dando is the only original band member. He's touring, playing the entire "It's a Shame About Ray," album.
The band appears with The Shining Twins, Street Chant and Erich Luening.
Catch the concert at 8 p.m. Saturday at The Triple Door, 216 Union St., Seattle. Tickets are $20 in advance, $24 at door. Buy them at www.thetripledoor.com.

Singer Rickie Lee Jones, 56, is celebrating 30 years of performing with two shows at Dimitriou's Jazz Alley in Seattle.
The songwriter and vocalist had pop hits in the late '70s including "Chuck E.'s In Love."
During her career, she has evolved into a versatile performer, at home with jazzs standards, blues, R&B and rock.
That musical diversity is at the heart of her latest album, "Balm in Gilead."
Hear her live on stage at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday at Dimitriou's Jazz Alley, 2033 Sixth Ave., Seattle.
Tickets are $35 at www.jazzalley.com or 206-441-9729.

Finally, people who love Irish music can find a pair of concerts this next week.
Paul Byrom, formerly a member of "Celtic Thunder" and said to be the best living Irish tenor, is playing tonight at the Triple Door. The show is at 7:30 p.m. and costs $25 in advance, $30 at the door.
Gaelic Storm, the band made famous by an appearance in the movie "Titanic," is at the Neptune on Saturday. They just put out their second album, "Cabbage." The show is at 9 p.m. Tickets are $19 in advance, $22 at the door.
