Crystal Ballroom
1332 W Burnside St.
 

[POST ROCK PROGENITORS] Long before Mogwai and Explosions in the Sky were scoring films about football and zombies, something was bubbling in the metal and hardcore muck of Louisville, Kentucky. Slint wasn’t exactly an ironclad member of either of those genres, but the lack of a better way to peg what we now call “post-rock” was a massive boon for these early masters of the slowly creeping, sludgy payoff. To sum it up succinctly—an approach Slint was uniformly opposed to—their mysterious debut Spiderland is as close to patient zero in the ’90s instrumental guitar rock epidemic as we’ll ever find.
