For decades fans of the band KISS have called themselves the KISS Army. But now that they’re set to play a concert off the coast of Australia for human and sharks fans, maybe there’s also a KISS Navy? Plus: in Oklahoma, the annual Honobia Bigfoot Festival is getting underway.

Fans of the band KISS have called themselves the KISS Army. Maybe there’s also a KISS Navy?

The band has added a very unusual stop on their farewell tour: an underwater concert.

Next month the band, their crew and a small group of fans will head to sea at Port Lincoln, South Australia.

The fans will head to a submarine in water where sharks like to hand out. The band, staying above water, will play four songs into a sound system that includes underwater speakers.

I don’t know whether sharks want to hear “Detroit Rock City” or “Rock and Roll All Nite,” but I do know that this is not the first time KISS has performed at sea.

The band’s been hosting what they call the KISS Cruise for nine years, after all.

And really, playing a concert for Australian sharks is just one more stop for a band that once added their own blood to the ink to print up their appearance in Marvel comic books.

Probably best not to repeat that stunt while the sharks are around.

This weekend you can head to the town of Honobia, Oklahoma, where the annual Bigfoot Festival is getting underway.

There will be speakers and sessions for Sasquatch scholars – for everyone else, there’s food, crafts, games, and Bigfoot storytelling – and the organizers use the proceeds for scholarships for local students.

So whether or not Bigfoot exists, he’s helping put people through college.
