The rain came down--and came down hard--just after !!! lanched its party-funk sound in the still-early afternoon of Day Two at ACL. But, perhaps because the crowds weren't yet completely soaked, there was a certain novelty to the precipitation--and !!! frontman Nic Offer used that novelty to great ends on Saturday.

As the crowd danecd through the rain--perhaps as a means to trick themselves into thinking they actually enjoyed being drenched on a cold day--Offer sprinted back-and-forth across the slick stage and into the crowd, teasing audience members by stealing their umbrellas and ponchos and running away with their possessions.
