Not Just a Hot Vacation Spot


I know, I know, you're gonna say,"but Swan('s) Island is off the coast of Maine!" Although that maybe true, if you're very, very lucky the coolest new band may be coming to a town near you. Swan Island is a group of 5 ladies that enjoy their rock. Their new album is unlike anything you are probably listening to now. They call it "white metal," I say toe-ma-toe. Let's all decide by going to see them. I say you need this as much as I do.
