Rocketboat is a local band that is off to a great start. They started off with their first album named “Rocketboat”. All of their songs are completely amazing and my favorites are; “Music, Space, And Girls”, “No Consolation”, and “Lauraine”. Rocketboat had their first show December 7th and they decided to stop by at our station! We interviewed Marc and Josh about their band and how they felt about their upcoming show at Abbey Pub. Check out Rocketboat at http://www.facebook.com/#!/wearerocketboat?fref=ts . We will be playing all their music on WARG 88.9fm!
