When performing a Rain Dance at a concert, especially one in which a world music artist like M.I.A. is performing, you must consider not only the durability of your props, but also their aesthetic value. Are the colors pleasing? Will using, say, an umbrella, give the Rain Gods the proper hint of your intentions? Do you have an actual dance to go with that prop or is it the other way around? A good prop won’t make a good Rain Dance but a bad prop will absolutely kill a Rain Dance.

Our week of Austin City Limits Fest ends on a wistful note as mud-trekkers made the most of the festival’s last day with a sweet little umbrella dance. You kids stay dry out there.
