Although I’m a late arrival to the post-rock party, I started following This Will Destroy You a couple years ago. With their sonic power, strong sense of melody and extreme technical abilities, this band’s music spoke to me in a way I’d never experienced before. So I jumped at the chance to see TWDY live at the Black Cat recently. As a bonus, to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the release of the eponymously named first full length album, the band would be performing it and the 2006 EP, Young Mountain, in their entireties.
Earlier this year, This Will Destroy You launched a series of performances celebrating the 10th anniversary of their eponymous 2008 studio album. That tour resumes next week, when it comes to the Black Cat for a show on Wednesday, May 9.
