Rain is great, hail not so much. Still, Elise Wunder and Das Wunder Band gave a great show tonight, playing a bit beyond their 8pm scheduled end-time to an enthusiastic crowd of dancing soaked people at Equinox Brewing Co. in Fort Collins. Strong winds, driving rain that at times fell almost horizontally, and hail that kept getting bigger every 20 minutes or so, for an outdoor patio show, usually means the show is over.
But the band was tucked safely away under the brewery roof, and once the speakers were stowed inside under the roof, the concert resumed in earnest (though at no time during the whole storm did the music stop). Only half of the audience left the crowded patio once the rain began, leaving enough room for those who remained to dance in the rain to the live bluesy tunes still pouring out onto the patio.
Missed the fun? Das Wunder Band will be playing another show at Equinox 0n Saturday, July 27th, though the rain may or may not turn up on cue for the next show.
