It’s the end of the world as you know it

American mainstream music has long been a morally depraved wasteland of winsome one-hit wonders and fleeting pop phonies.

Daring turncoats are quickly silenced and sonic dissenters are squashed at their roots by the iron fist of our pop culture’s bullying big brother: the major label record industry.

Luckily our suffocating red, white and blue subjugation is barred from crossing international waters and the rest of the world is allotted room to breathe. British rock gods Muse are an American breath of fresh air.

Muse’s signature brand of Brit-pop gloom, metal intensity and soaring falsetto melodies have generated a tidal wave of international acclaim for the band that is just now cresting over our homeland’s Eastern seaboard. In the face of American indifference, Muse crafted two of the ’90s greatest rock and roll records in Showbiz and Origins of Symmetry. Its latest otherworldly oeuvre, Absolution, paints an apocalyptic soundscape of jagged rock riffing and mind altering melody, that is sure to make American skies fall. Drafting the support of Dallas indie- rock trio The Secret Machines-whose debut From Here to Nowhere has won the hearts of emo-elitists and psychadelic-alternative rock elders alike-Muse is officially invading the states. So, as opposed to being left behind to choke on the dust of Muse’s musical revolution, why not make sure to catch the band at their performance tonight? The foreign incursion will take In The Venue hostage this evening around 7 p.m. When the world ends, don’t be left in the dark.
