Lake Tahoe music lovers don’t worry about the rain, they just want to go see the rock band Train

Harveys Outdoor Arena was inundated by an afternoon thunderstorm Tuesday, July 21, hours before the band Train was slated to headline a tripleheader with the Fray and Matt Nathanson. Equipped with bundles of towels, nearly 3 dozen stage hands wiped down the bleachers and folding chairs, and, with Tahoe’s arid climate, the seats were dry for the nearly 5,500 who attended the show.

Here are Tahoe Onstage images by Kurt E. Johnson:
