Rounding out our Bonnaroo highlight reel this week, we have Explosions in the Sky in their four-Fender glory performing The Only Moment We’re Alone off their 2003 release, The Earth
The long drawn and epic introduction to “Last Known Surroundings,” the first song off Take Care… is undoubtedly the highpoint on an album that, despite its predictably frequent moments of euphoria and jubilation, eventually fizzles out with barely a whimper. Is it time for post post-rock already?
Over the last few years, the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, which boasts an impressive array of celebrities buried within its grounds, has played host to a series of unique concerts. The latest batch of artists to sign on to perform amongst the tombstones include Explosions In The Sky, James Blake, Mark Lanegan and Flaming Lips. The psychedelic-rock act, who will play the cemetery for two nights and one morning on June 14 and 15, will seize the opportunity by performing their 1999 breakthrough album The Soft Bulletin in its entirety as well their interpretation of Pink Floyd’s seminal classic Dark Side Of The Moon. Ticketing information and further details about these shows are still forthcoming.
