Coheed & Cambria brought their blend of rock, metal and prog to the 9:30 Club for the second of two nights on Tuesday, headlining a well-thought-out bill with Between the Buried and Me—-whose own rock/metal/prog hybrid is notably more schizophrenic—-and slow-burning instrumentalists Russian Circles.
