having a residual effect, but it looks like the shock rocker's February 29 at the House of Blues might be worth hitting up. Manson has reunited with original bassist Twiggy Ramirez, who co-wrote the band's two biggest albumsAntichrist Superstar
. Twiggy and Marilyn Mansonsplit back in 2002
with the catch all "going different directions." (Why do band breakup explanations always remind me of divorce papers?) Manson doessome weird shit
on his own, but with his BFF at his side there's a chance things will get wild. On the off chance things go down in Dallas, I want to see it. --Chelsea Ide
