NICE, BUT CAN THEY BREATHE FIRE?
ARENA'S MANAGEMENT DEMANDS KISS

No, KISS wasn't in town, but this was the next best thing. Members of the Tsongas Arena's management, including box-office manager Carla Dubiel , General Manager Craig Gates, Ralph Martin, who works in operations, and ticket seller Sarah Mallard, donned the black-and-white makeup of 1970's rockers KISS and assaulted the downtown, shilling for votes to 'demand' that KISS play the arena.

The crew got the attention of Lowell Police Superintendent Ken Lavallee. After determining that they were not just a group of looting hoodlums, his vote was won and, being a good sport, he even had his picture taken with them.

The band is holding an online contest to determine where they will play this summer.

To demand that KISS play the Tsongas Arena, go to www.eventful.com/KISS and demand Lowell, MA 01852. Voting ends June 30.

THIS DAY IN TORY 1977
KISS ADD BLOOD TO COMIC BOOK

May 26, 1977 - KISS announce their debut KISS Marvel Comic book and deposit their own blood in the comic book ink at the Marvel printing plant.

Gene recalled the event:

As the KISS comic book project moved along, someone came up with the idea of putting real blood in the ink. It wasn't me - maybe it was Bill Aucoin. We got in the DC3, one of those big prop planes, and flew up to Buffalo to Marvel's printing plant, where they pour the ink and make comic books. A notary public actually witnessed the blood being drawn.
