Muse @ Kanrocksas 2011

Muse @ Kanrocksas 2011

I’m not all that familiar with Muse, so it didn’t quite click as to why they were chosen as the Kanrocksas Day 2 headliners. Then their show started and I quickly understood.

The Good: Holy smokes, like the Flaming Lips the day before, Muse knows how to own the big stage. The hexagonal LED backdrop. Singer Matthew Bellamy somehow pulling off the Kanye-hipster era neon sunglasses. The crowd going nuts during the chorus of “Uprising.”

The Bad: Purely speculation, but I’m guessing Muse’s setup was so elaborate that the Main Stage was only used for one other show (Girl Talk) on Saturday. This was strangely the first and only time I shot from the Main Stage pit all weekend.

The Irrelevant: Greg Gillis (Girl Talk) was behind Jason Stoff (Encor.es) and me walking into the photo pit. Yes we did nerd out and say hi.
