Photo essay: Trans-Siberian Orchestra @ the Pepsi Center

Jeopardy answer: A band that insists on lifting its string players on motorized, fog-enveloped machines is automatically awesome — or painfully, hilariously cheesy. Jeopardy question: Who is Trans-Siberian Orchestra? Photos by Mateo Leyba.

Oh, Trans-Siberian Orchestra. You are a spectacle among spectacles, an over-the-top tribute to holidays and sentimentality as much as scalp-singeing lasers and hilarious arena-rock guitar solos. When you visited the Pepsi Center on Tuesday to play songs from their latest epic, “Night Castle,” you didn’t disappoint. Your sets, costumes and ear-rumbling songs were everything we’ve come to expect from robotically-calculated, seasonal rock orchestras. Symphonic metal? Pyrotecnics? Aw hell yes.
