Texas post-rock­ers Ex­plo­sions in the Sky bring their dis­tinct, at­mo­spheric gui­tar sound­scapes to the San Fran­cisco Bath­house on De­cem­ber 15. I can’t think of a bet­ter way to wel­come sum­mer in. Tick­ets $45 from un­der­ther­adar.co.nz THE BOX: I’ve be­come a Soho soak, and largely be­cause of the grip­ping crime drama The Killing. Af­ter all the CSIS, SUVS, Law & Or­ders, over the past decade I’d sworn off po­lice pro­ce­du­rals. But this show, based on a Dan­ish se­ries, has its own per­son­al­ity – grim but to­tally en­thralling. Set in driz­zly Seat­tle, it fol­lows the case of a mur­dered teen, from the per­spec­tive of the de­tec­tives, the vic­tim’s par­ents, and the po­lit­i­cal over­lords. TUNE: The movie is still a few weeks away but I’m ad­dicted to Life’s a Happy Tune, the fea­ture sing-along from The Muppets. I smell an Os­car. IN­TER­WEB: The Black Keys do bet­ter mu­sic videos than most, and the one-shot Lonely Boy is sim­ply awe­some. youtube.com/watch?v=a— 426RIWST8
