SWELL: What’s yer favorite venue to play and why?

SWIMM:  Well for sentimental purposes let’s just say Detroit Bar. Can’t believe its the end. We honestly have had some of the most fun nights playing music because of that place. It is pretty sad to think this will be the last time we will play there. Damn I just got sad. (more…)

Photo Tip of the Week from photo contributor, Kelsey Finn…
One thing I really hate in some of my photos is when I accidentally cut off my model’s arm or leg. This can create an awkward look to the photo. So I suggest shooting with a wide angle lens and taking your photos from further away. Eventually you will be comfortable with your camera and intuitively know how close or far you need to be to ensure your model is entirely within the frame.

It can humble us with the crash of a wave, even the really small ones.
It can inspire us in so many ways, with such little effort.
…and it leaves us all salty, refreshed, and ready to dive in for more as much as possible.

So, when was the last time you spent some time in the big blue sea? Warning: The side effects will do your mind and body a whole bunch of good.
