Lucky Pineapple is comprised of an unlikely combination of classically trained musicians, veterans of the Louisville punk scene, theatre performers, and improvisational noise artists. Since their inception in 2004, LUCKY PINEAPPLE have tried to play out of the ordinary shows including art gallery parking lots, Zombie Proms, film festivals, house parties, a student lounge at Transylvania University, as a musical interlude during a teen talent show at the Louisville Free Public Library, frequent appearances on WFPKâ€™s Live Lunch series and at Louisville Slugger Field, home of the Louisville Bats AAA baseball team. Their live performances have included light shows, video projection collaborations, matching tuxedos, inflatable palm trees, a go-go dancer and a semi-regular group of back-up singers. In 2005, recording engineer and LUCKY PINEAPPLE fan Mike Bridavsky was at a Tape-Op convention and found himself in a poker game for which the prize was a free day of recording at Steve Albiniâ€™s Electrical Audio in Chicago. He won and decided to donate his prize to LUCKY PINEAPPLE. The band accepted and chipped in for a second day of recording. The five songs that came from this session provided the foundation for The Bubble Has Burst in Sky City. The band filled the album out with additional material recorded at their home studio. The album was mastered by Carl Saff in Chicago and was released in September of 2008 on Noise Pollution. Several months later, that album caught the ears of sonaBLAST, who agreed to back it for a national rerelease in August of 2009. Concurrent with the rerelease, the band partnered with local filmmaker Andrew Vititoe to produce their first music video for Moment in an Empty Street. The video debuted at the Louisville Film Societyâ€™s Short Film Showcase, and subsequently made available online and on cable channel Fuse On Demand. The band is currently performing in support of The Bubble Has Burst in Sky City.
