Pictorial Review: Muse + Cage the Elephant at Verizon Center

Matthew Bellamy is perhaps the most purely talented front man in rock and roll. He can sing with the best of them, play Bach-level complexity with ease on the piano, and not only makes his own guitars, but wails on them, too. And, sometimes…he does all three at once. A Muse show is grandiose, epic, and imbued with all the trappings of cock rock that the post-Nirvana world has mostly eschewed. In short: it’s something to see.

They recently brought their cavalcade to Washington, D.C.’s Verizon Center with support from Cage the Elephant. This is what it looked like.

Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
