Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Tool is just one of those bands that inspires crazy cult-like fandom. Or a totally indifferent shrug of the shoulders.

But according to our sister blog County Grind, last night's show at the BankAtlantic Center was crawling with rabid devotees to the Temple of Tool.

So what if most of the material was from 1996's AEnima? And so what if Maynard James Keenan seemed to slink away from the spotlight?

Reviewer Arielle Castillo reports that Keenan's voice is "still in album-perfect shape." Also, the music and visuals kept the fanatics screaming.

Castillo's only complaint? "The entire evening's timing went off with an almost clinical efficiency."

We'd call that a win for the Temple of Tool.
