NICE, BUT CAN THEY BREATHE FIRE?

KISS
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.
