Apparently Explosions In The Sky have gotten a little more popular. Last week, my woman and I saw them play at the Society For Ethical Culture as part of the Wordless Music Series. When I've seen them in the past, I was usually close enough to (almost) get hit in the face with a guitar. Awesome! This time we were farther away than usual, but the seats were comfortable and the show was still great (in spite of the old people, the awful hipsters who kept calling the LPs "vinyls" and the fact that we had to pay more than face value for the tickets).

I don't think the audience was supposed to clap in between songs, but the band kept rocking out for over an hour without our approval. Luckily, my digital camera has a zoom lens and Shira was able to take a picture where you can see that the band is made up of regular-sized people.

They played some great songs from their new album, All Of A Sudden I Miss Everyone, and some old favorites from their last two albums. If you listen to their new single while looking at the pictures…it's pretty boring, unless you already like this band.
