Neither rain nor threats of thunder kept Live at Lakeview from canceling its third concert of the summer on Thursday.

Instead, it went indoors in a more intimate environment at Tep’s Villa Roma’s banquet hall on Lake Tahoe Boulevard.

Despite the switch and locale, the concert drew nearly 200 people, though not as much as what the concert at Lakeview Commons normally draws.

Placerville-based MerryGold opened up the show with a wide range of bluegrass and folk music that channeled simpler times and the spirit of the pioneer days of the Old West.

World’s Finest, a Portland, Oreg. based band hit the stage next, infusing nearly 200 people in the banquet hall with a raw blend of ska, Americana, dub and bluegrass.

People hit the dance floor, including a group decked out in pirate gear.
