After the Austin City Limits festival was canceled...
NME reports that Atoms for Peace are streaming a surprise show from the Moody Theater in Austin online. The show took place last Sunday after the last day of the Austin City Limits festival was canceled.
Thom Yorke tweeted at the time: "Austin Texas tonight. A storm to end all storms! Lightning and thunder & rain like I have never seen.."
The final day was canceled due to bad weather. There were flash flood warnings and between five and eleven inches of rain fell on Saturday around the festival site.
Shelby Meade, communications director for C3 Presents (the promoter of the festival) said: "Our first priority is always the safety of our fans, staff and artists. We regret having to cancel the show today, but safety always comes first."
Franz Ferdinand, The National and Phoenix were set to play at that time. Arctic Monkeys, Muse, Queens of the Stone Age and Kings of Leon had already performed that weekend.
Franz Ferdinand singer Alex Kapranos tweeted: "So disappointed that ACL is cancelled. I've been looking forward to this all week."
