The crazy thing is they confiscated all umbrellas at the door (almost all of them anyway). I was hoping to take a picture of all the umbrellas they had piled up by the entrance, but I forgot. Why they did that, I don’t know.

Ends up there wasn’t any rain for almost the entire concert – it felt like a miracle. Then like magic – it was magical I swear – it started coming down in buckets right as the encore kicked in (“King of the Bongo” I think?). Everyone went nuts – in a good way.

What made it even better was that right before the encore that Celebrate Brooklyn guy – the worst possible guy for the job – came out and told that crowd that due to “dangerous” thunderstorms about to come our way (cue: everyone in attendance BOOS at once, and then…. THUNDER…), Manu Chao would be allowed to come out and do one more song for us, but then we needed to all get home safely. He did not wish anyone luck finding their umbrella though.

Bigger pictures – especially of the crowd and rain, @ FLICKR, and one more photo and a bunch of comments HERE.

This show took place in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, NYC – a “Celbrate Brooklyn” “benefit” show – on June 27, 2007. It was the second night in a row, and the second year in a row.
