The Atoms For Peace Make-Up ACL Performance has thankfully hit the interwebs, and we’ve got the full video below.
As you’re probably well aware, especially if you happened to be at Austin City Limits’ second weekend, the festival was rained out on the final day. As a result of dangerous thunderstorms and flooding, festival organizers decided to cancel the remaining shows in the interest of audience safety. Despite reimbursing paying audiences a third of their admission fee, Mother Nature really dropped a major buzz kill on fans eager to see Atoms For Peace, Phoenix, Niko Case and Lionel Richie.
Not to be outdone by the forces that be, Yorke and company — always game for a performance — organized a last minute show for fans. Partnering up with ACL Live and Youtube, Atoms For Peace provided a streaming performance from the gig held at the famous Moody Theatre in Austin. Yorke and Flea delivered an outstanding performance, a performance that perhaps closes out Austin City Limits on a more satisfying note.

Outside of refunding fans of ACL Fest a percentage of their admission fee, there’s no official word on further compensation. Insider speculation suggests rained out fans may receive quicker access to ACL 2014 tickets.
