Tool Plays The Pete; Stage AE Hosts Hayley Kiyoko; PSO at Arts Fest (Monday, 6/5/17)

1) The last Tool album, 10,000 Days, dropped 11 years ago. Earlier this year, the headliners for the Governors Ball Music Festival in New York City were announced: Phoenix, Chance the Rapper … and Tool? Oh, yes. A tour announcement followed in March, including a stop at the Petersen Events Center. Alas, according to the official Twitter account of associated act A Perfect Circle, 2017 will not see a new Tool album. The mysterious alt-metal quartet always shied from the spotlight. The band members appear in only two of their eight music videos. Most of their videos opt strictly for stop motion animation. Vocalist Maynard James Keenan, who also fronts A Perfect Circle and Puscifer, often performs wearing Kabuki masks, wigs, or other guises. Tool formed in Los Angeles in 1990. The group’s first album was 1993’s Undertow, and three more followed. 8 p.m. 3719 Terrace St., Oakland. (CM)

2) The music video for Hayley Kiyoko’s “Girls Like Girls” tackles young sexuality in a serious way. It may be because of its sincerity, along with Kiyoko’s hypnotic vocals, that the video garnered over 67 million views and counting. The song appears on her second EP, This Side of Paradise. She’s released two other EPs, most recently 2016’s Citrine. Prior to her solo career, she was a member of The Stunners, a now defunct pop girl group. She might not have a surfeit of solo material, but it’s enough to garner an appearance at The Club at Stage AE. Kiyoko might also record more if she weren’t such a renaissance woman. Her film appearances include the horror movie Insidious: Chapter 3. She had a recurring role on “CSI:Cyber” and played Velma Dinkley, the brains of the group of “meddling kids,” in two made-for-TV Scooby-Doo movies. Special guest is Sweater Beats. Doors open 7 p.m. 400 North Shore Dr., North Shore. (CM)

3) The Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival continues today and features 10 days of free art and music shows! There’s also theater and dance productions and hands-on arts activities for kids. Don’t forget the festival food including gyros, Italian sausage, grilled chicken kabobs, funnel cakes, plenty of deep-fried food items and some surprises!  The musical headliner for tonight is Pittsburgh’s own Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. 7:30 p.m. Dollar Bank Stage. Festival opens at noon daily and runs through June 11. Point State Park and Gateway Center, Downtown.
