Slim’s – San Francisco

Texas post-rock outfit This Will Destroy You brought their ethereal soundscapes to Slim’s last Wednesday as part of their 10-date North American tour. The band has been around since its formation in 2005, and for those unfamiliar with TWDY, their music remains predominantly atmospheric and very much instrumental. Think of Explosions in the Sky (another post-rock band from Texas) or God Is an Astronaut with evocative guitar sounds and dreamy, yet cold electronic layers.

Sporting a minimalist stage setup in SF, the four-piece made up by Jeremy Galindo (guitar), Christopher King (guitar), Donovan “Dono” Jones (bass, keyboards) and Alex Bhore (drums) performed primarily in the dark, only becoming visible after a few sporadic light explosions and projections revealed each band member. But with three studio albums under their belt, TWDY delivered a solid set in front of a surprisingly packed crowd.
