Tame Impala Rained Out At Desert Daze

Tame Impala’s set ended up getting rained out at Desert Daze last night. The Kevin Parker-led psych-rock band were set to headline the first night of the California festival, but they only made it three songs in before a man came onstage and announced that everyone had to go and seek shelter due to a thunderstorm; it had been lightly raining with some lightning for the previous hour.

Although organizers insisted that Tame Impala were not being cancelled and would still play, their set was officially cancelled a little less than two hours later. According to Stereogum leader Scott Lapatine, who was on-site, the performance sounded good until it was cut short (and there was a confetti cannon during “Let It Happen”). Watch some footage below.
