Antarctica gig lined up for Live Earth concerts:

OK, so they’re not rock stars. But scientists with the British Antarctic Survey will guarantee Al Gore’s promise that the Live Earth concerts on July 7 will be performed on all 7 continents.

They’ll be performing during the dead of winter at the Rothera Research Station. In fact, it’ll be the first time anyone outside the station has heard the indie rock-folk band, Nunatak, play at all. (Nunatak, by the way, is a Greenlandic word that means an exposed summit of a ridge mountain or peak within an ice field or glacier.)
