Noticed early on by Louisville native Jeremy deVine’s Temporary Residence label, Austin’s Explosions in the Sky have risen from being lost among the oceans of instrumental bands to being revered for their cinematic methods: rousing transitions, guitars that alternate between glassy and gargantuan, satisfying codas that unfold like denouements to a film. Speaking of that: Their biggest mainstream exposure came when the quartet wrote the original soundtrack for the 2004 feature “Friday Night Lights.” It’s an apropos pairing, considering Texans’ unchecked affinity for all things football. Tuesday’s show is one of two North American dates before the band plays All Tomorrow’s Parties in New York, after which they’ll head to England to open for Radiohead singer Thom Yorke. —Mat Herron
