Explosions in the Sky Advertises a Concert, Media Invents a Controversy

Of the 365 days in a year, maybe post-punks Explosions in the Sky shouldn't have picked the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks to play a concert.

Why? This marquee, spotted in Boise, Idaho, advertises said concert. The words “SEPT 11” next to “EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY” caught the attention of NBC New York, which noted (helpfully!) that the show has “the unfortunate timing of taking place on the 10th anniversary of the terror attacks that killed more than 2,700 people at the World Trade Center.”
