Emblem 3

NOW IT CAN BE TOLD: Here are a few snapshots commemorating Syco/Columbia band Emblem3’s visit to the Westfield Garden State Plaza Mall in Paramus, NJ. Some 1,500 fans turned out to pick up the X Factor stars’ debut album, Nothing to Lose, in a special early sale and participate in a meet-and-greet/signing. Apparently the incessant screaming caused mild hearing loss and/or insanity in some observers, but the band escaped unscathed. (7/31a)
