great story from Hits Daily Double: BAND IN A BIOSPHERE: Talk about a band bubbling under. Epic recording artists Cartel will seal themselves inside a huge transparent bubble on Hudson River Park’s Pier 54 in NYC, where they’ll eat, sleep and breathe while writing and recording a new album live. The entire interactive, multimedia event, Band in a Bubble, will be sponsored by Dr. Pepper, offering fans “an unprecedented real-time look into the ups and downs of the creative process.” The band will enter the bubble during a live MTV broadcast on May 24 and live there with no escape until the bubble “bursts” on June 12, when they will perform new material in a concert event on the pier. Hopefully, Pauly Shore will not be with them when they emerge.
It’d be a lot cooler if Kings of Leon was doing it. Uhh, well maybe not even KOL.
