We’ll leave after midnight on a warm night with no moon. I know a place above the city where we can lay back on a wool blanket and feel the rocks under our bones. We’ll watch as the stars ignite their first tentative glimmers of the night, fighting initially through the atmospheric haze. It’s never easy when you first start to find your light. My iPod is charged; maybe bring that base that plays music with no cords because we’ll be far from any outlets and I have something I want to hear. I know life’s been hard on you lately, hard on me. Maybe it wasn’t meant to be easy. The grey of life makes tonight’s sky seem all the more brilliant. A galaxy, a comet, a supernova. We’ll listen to (and watch for) those explosions in the sky. The stars will sing – maybe tonight our music doesn’t need the words.

Explosions In The Sky is a band from from Austin, Texas that tells amazing stories through songs which happen to lack words. Try it and see for yourself, the dizzying landscapes they can take you through.
This show was the second of three sold-out nights at the classy Great American Music Hall in San Francisco just back in March.
