Marilyn Manson

Welcome back, Twiggy

Did you see Across the Universe? My sister freaked out when I told her that the blonde playing Lucy is Marilyn Manson’s current girlfriend. Evan Rachel Wood also inspired the love songs on Eat Me, Drink Me and starred with Manson in the video for “Heart-Shaped Glasses.” The other songs’ inspiration came courtesy of ex-wife Dita Von Teese and a ridiculous press feud with My Chemical Romance. As evil as it might seem for an almost 40-year-old man to be banging a 20-year-old, it is the return of Manson’s first love that will make this tour truly evil. Guitarist Twiggy Ramirez returns to the Anti-Christ Superstar’s side for the tour, and will, we hope, stick around for a new album. The reunion was apparently inspired by Led Zeppelin. What this means for other past guitarists like Tim Skold and John 5 remains unknown. Also unknown is whether Wood will be the only person Manson waves his dick at during this tour. Paramount Theatre, 911 Pine St., 682-1414, www.theparamount.com. $39.50-$49.50. 8 p.m. T.J. TRANCHELL
