Now in their 18th year together as a group, Explosions in the Sky have surpassed any initial expectations by becoming the most popular instrumental rock band in the country, turning into festival mainstays while reaching a mainstream audience through their soundtrack work for the movie Friday Night Lights. Unlike kindred spirits and fellow 2013 Nine Inch Nail openers Godspeed You! Black Emperor, whose songs trade in a certain ambiguity, Explosions specialize in writing sweeping epics in which the hero always wins the day. Expects a lot of feels at this show, as the band often plays like the world is about to end.
