Tool will hit American Airlines Center Friday, bringing a set full of songs from their 2019 Fear Inoculum album and a handful of tunes from their other four studio albums.

Mick Jenkins

February 2, 8 p.m. | Trees
Mick Jenkins started with mixtapes and EPs before signing first with Cinematic Music Group and then RBC Records. His latest album, The Patience, was released last year to great acclaim.
