Multiple music-related outlets are abuzz this morning over a rumor that MUSE will be performing at Stubb's in Austin on March 20. According to Pollstar, the band is playing Houston on March 18 with their next-scheduled show being in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on March 29. Stubb's event calendar has Minus the Bear and The Drums playing on March 20. Of course it doesn't mention whether that show is taking place on the indoor or outdoor stage. Metric is being mentioned as the opening act for Muse. They have a show in Tempe, Arizona on March 17 with their next show scheduled for March 21 in Seattle, Washington.
Regardless of where or when the Muse show takes place - assuming it does take place - it will be a rare opportunity to see this band in a club setting. And that's exactly part of why South by Southwest has the reputation it does.
I'll be in Cleveland on March 20, most likely at a Lake Erie Monsters game. If you happen to make it to the Muse show let me know what I missed.
