Fall Out Boy Wondering If “Hello, Antarctica!” Has A Nice Ring To It
If you have an additional $2,500 floating around, you can fly with the band from Puntas Arenas, Chile, to Antarctica on their “Whisper Jet.” Total duration of this excursion? One day. Yep, 24 freaking hours. I guess the news of Social@Ross’ failure hasn’t traveled down to that continent just yet.
During Live Earth, Nunatak warmed our hearts the same way humans managed to melt the glaciers, but I wouldn’t be on the Internet if I didn’t tell you that the concept of playing Antarctica is old news. The IceStock festival has been held on New Year’s Day since 1990:
“The stage every year is built temporarily and it’s just two flatbeds from the back of tractor trailers next to each other, and that’s the stage,” Krauss said.
“On top of that they put part of an old military Jamesway — what used to be used in the MASH units, like in World War II and stuff,” Krauss said. “That provides a little bit of coverage from the side from the wind. There are big parachutes behind the stage to help block out the wind a little bit and also just to look cool.”
