Live Video: Cloud Cult at Arts In Nature Festival

Live Video, Little Big Show
Jim Beckmann

It's fitting that the Arts in Nature Festival is where Cloud Cult planted the seed. Their concert last summer inside the Lodge at Seattle's Camp Long marked the first time the the Minnesota band went fully acoustic. They had recently rearranged songs spanning their entire catalog for what would become a series of all-acoustic performances and the album to follow, "Unplug", and the audience was thrilled by this new, but not unexpected direction. Some were even brought to tears. KEXP filmed the entire Camp Long performance, so you can here

Even better, you can see Cloud Cult for yourself when they headline Little Big Show #9 at Neptune Theatre on Friday, May 16. Tickets are still available, and 100% of ticket sales benefit Hugo House, a non-profit community writing center in Seattle.
