The ominous post-rock peaks scaled by Explosions in the Sky could be used to accentuate just about anything, from terror propaganda (sophomore album Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Live Forever, released the week before Sept. 11, 2001, bore in its liner notes a jetliner with the words "This plane will crash tomorrow") to high-school football (the Texas instrumentalists wrote the score for 2004's Friday Night Lights). Baltimore duo Wye Oak opens. Tickets $19 in advance, $21 at the door. 9 p.m. Wednesday. Tipitina's, 501 Napoleon Ave., 895-8477;
