In 2007, the company sent an e-mail out to its employees at a NYC office warning that a python was loose in the facilities. Definitely sounds like a prank, I know, but it was true: an engineer kept a ball python named Kaiser in his cube and Kaiser escaped. The e-mail to employees apologized for the awkward timing and assured them that this was no April Fool stunt.

Antigone Rising visits USA TODAY’s StudioA

Going strong since 1993, the members of alt-country group Antigone Rising have rubbed elbows with the Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, the Allman Brothers Band and Rob Thomas — all while making a name for themselves by putting in the hard work (early in their career, they played about 280 shows a year).

The sister-fronted band stopped by USA TODAY’s StudioA for a three-song set. Here, they play “That Was the Whiskey.”
