How About Bubble Concerts?

The past year has been rough on many, including the live events industry. For musicians, their crews, venue teams, and concert devotees, it's been a long time since things have felt normal—and probably will be a long time until they feel normal again. Last weekend, rock band Flaming Lips tried to bring back a sense of normality by holding a concert with the band and the crowd inside large, individual plastic bubbles. As fun (and perhaps claustrophobia-inducing) as that sounds, it's probably not a very safe idea, in terms of COVID transmission. Head over to The New York Times for more.
