I love living in the age of the internet. It blows my mind that a band that regularly sells out stadiums around the world can post a little comment on its website about playing a secret show at a music festival in Texas, and that based on that, people buy plane tickets, probably online, to fly there. Then a handful of these folks get to watch Muse play at Stubb’s. MUSE. At STUBB’S. It’s like playing in a shoebox for a band of that stature. And then, somebody makes a tastefully-shot black-and-white mini-film about the whole affair. And finally, what occurred on March 19th is now available for your viewing pleasure (or teeth-gnashing envy, whichever the case may be) on April 5th. Amazing.
