Lightning strikes this band


It was an electrifying event to say the least. Members of ArcAttack brought their high energy mixture of music, a primer on electricity and lightning bolts from two Tesla coils to the stage of the Centre for Performing and Visual Arts in Newnan on Feb. 3. The band member playing the guitar in center stage is wearing a metal suit that acts as a Faraday Cage device and is subsequently unharmed by the 500,000-volt arcs of electricity. Photo/Ben Nelms.
