As a person who truly despises Taylor Swift, I truly despise that I enjoy this album.
That’s right. I’ve said it. I LIKE 1989 BY TAYLOR SWIFT. She is the queen of bubblegum pop that destroys every male celebrity she has dated. Though she has still kept up with her breakup and makeup songs, she has found a new sound that will make even the most hipster of hipsters rethink their anti-mainstream mindset. With producers like Imogen Heap, Greg Kurstin, who has worked with Tegan and Sara as well as Lily Allen, and Ryan Tedder from OneRepublic, how can you go wrong? Well, I’m saying she didn’t (except for possibly “Shake It Off”, but it’s still dang catchy).

WLOY staff members, Patricia and Tara, got to see The End of America. Don’t worry that’s just the band name of people who love part harmonies and Americana. These dudes hail from the great city of Philadelphia, but we got them to come Baltimore to give us an interview.

What: National Aquarium
Where: 501 E Pratt St, Baltimore, MD 21202
When: Open Dailey (Hours Vary)
If you’re here in Baltimore, you can’t miss out on the National Aquarium, where the mystery of beautiful underwater life is revealed. While some people may say, “Once you’ve seen one aquarium, you’ve seen them all”, the Baltimore National Museum is especially worth seeing. Its exhibits include sea creatures from all over the world, and the museum works hard to help preserve our oceans and the species that inhabit them, which are increasingly disappearing as our environment changes. Located in the heart of Baltimore’s inner harbor, you can make a day, or even two, out of a day at the aquarium and all the fun things the harbor has to offer! Find out more here!
