Explosions in The Sky

Friday, April 6

Remember the Care Bears? Remember how, whenever they would go up against some sort of villain or evil-doer, they would lock arms and beams of light would shoot from their ‘lil Care Bear bellies, a super-move called the Care Bear stare? Well, if there were music to somehow accompany the Care Bear stare, it would most likely be the crescendoing peak of an Explosions in the Sky song. Accompanied by a thunderous roar from the excited audience, Explosions took to the stage opening with “Yasmin The Light," the second track off their 2001 release Those Who Tell The Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell The Truth Shall Live Forever. Punctuating their set with some of their newer shit (which is not as awesome as their old stuff, to be sure, but definitely not bad), the band pulled the audience through songs from pretty much their entire catalog (except for their first album) as colorful lights and fog encapsulated the band like they were some sort of gate keepers to a magical cloud paradise (you know, like the Care Bears).
