The “Conditions of My Parole Tour” is the band’s first tour this side of the Mississippi, and Louisville is only the fifth stop. They aren’t playing any arenas: Whereas leader Maynard James Keenan’s other band Tool enjoyed great success in such a setting, Puscifer has a decidedly more artsy feel that blends better into the formal ambiance of a music hall than into the sweaty atmosphere of a stadium. This is probably because it’s not just a music collective — it’s a satirical performance piece that takes some of its meaning from being viewed. Soulful songstress Carina Round opens the show with her own music, then turns right around and joins the band. —Simon Isham
