Heavy on the vine

. May 24, 2012.

Alcohol and rock music have a long shared history. Fans may be more likely to think of beer, or Jack Daniels, when they think of their favorite musicians, but Maynard James Keenan, best known as the singer of hard-rock acts Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer has been working for nearly a decade to make a new name as the owner of Caduceus Cellars, a winery in the Verde Valley of Arizona. Filmmakers Christoper Pomerenke and Ryan Page followed Keenan and his partner Eric Glomski as they struggled to establish their vineyard and winery in the arid environment of Arizona. The result is Blood Into Wine, a 2010 film being shown as part of the Michigan Theater’s 2011 Summer Documentary Film Series. It’s bound to appeal both to Keenan’s devoted fanbase and wine lovers who may never have heard “Stinkfist” or “Judith.” $9. Monday, July 25. 7pm.  603 E. Liberty St. 734-668-8463. www.michtheater.org
