    Up Close and Personal

    How would you like to have your very own concert from one of your favorite rock bands? Better Than Ezra is offering a weekend of music/ the full BTE experience with a stay at the hotel Monteleone in New Orleans. Its a fascinating concept in which you pay for hotel and both shows. Obviously you must be a die-hard fan to want this, but BTE is offering much beyond the typical musical artist-fan relationship. The hotel is across the street from the venue and BTE claims the hotel knows them. BTE has always done a great job aligning themselves with the city of New Orleans and being more than just a band. They even offer a show for students only. I remember seeing Outkast at UNC and watching so many non-students come in. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but it was for the students. It loses its certain cache when others crash the party. It posed the thought in my head, now that we are in the MP3 age, do bands have to do more to rise above the clutter. Are their any bands out their who provide this type of intimate/rewarding experience for their fans?
