The Tralf, of all places, has been the host to some pretty great post-rock shows over the last few years. From Explosions in the Sky and Mogwai (maybe the loudest show I have ever attended) to the brain crushing Swans shows this year and last, the Main Street venue is becoming one of the go-to spots for deafening, slow building, and you guessed it, epic instrumentals. The tradition continues this evening with San Marcos, TX outfit, This Will Destroy You. The band name itself is quite the threat to audience members’ ear drums. Since forming in 2005, the band has released a steady output of material with its most recent being this summer’s Another Language. Check out the album’s first devastating single, “Dustism,” below before heading down tonight.
Doors open this evening at 7pm. Tickets are available at the door for $15. Furture Death and Silent Land Time Machine will provide support.
