Undaunted: Now You See Them’s Thunder-Confronting Acoustic Finale

Undaunted: Now You See Them’s Thunder-Confronting Acoustic Finale-attachment0

When Asheville-based, folk-leaning indie-pop group Now You See Them were told to shut down their performance in the face of oncoming rain as their Sunday set at Bele Chere came to a close, the band instead decided to tempt fate. Braving the increasing drizzle, the threatening sound of thunder, and a sound engineer who didn’t realize their plan, the group turned a shortened set into a fantastic bit of live music.

Here’s a look at the entire performance:
