Explosions In The Sky In Concert: ATP Festival 2010

September 14, 2010 The Austin post-rock band curated All Tomorrow's Parties in 2008. Now it's returned to perform at the music festival's 10th-anniversary party. Listen to the band's epic set here.

The Austin cinemascope rock band Explosions in the Sky plays densely swelling instrumentals of the variety that goes well with dramatized football games; fans of the movie and TV show Friday Night Lights would recognize its sound instantly. Considering the epic nature of the band's post-rock guitar symphonies, it's no surprise that Explosions in the Sky's music translates well to the live stage.

The group is no stranger to the All Tomorrow's Parties music festival. In 2008, Explosions in the Sky curated a night at the U.K. version of the festival. This performance, recorded Sept. 4, will likely be the band's last of 2010; it's scheduled to write and record material for a new record due in 2011.

Special thanks to WFMU for the recording of these ATP concerts. For more information, visit wfmu.org.
