Icelandic Excitement

The Bates College Radio station, WRBC, brought Icelandic band FM Belfast to perform a free concert this past Saturday night for the Bates community. A totally great band that I would never have discovered were it not for the WRBC, the four fashionable Icelandic rockers also participated in a symposium on Saturday, similarly open to the Bates community, in which they discussed what’s ACTUALLY going on in Iceland Bates’ own Associate Politics Professor Aslaug Asgeirsdottir, also of Iceland, providing two contrasting but informed points of views.
