Weezer and Wavves Embarking on a Concert Cruise


On the heels of announcing its plan to play side-by-side shows with the Flaming Lips, Weezer has announced another gimmicky but kind of cool concert idea: the Weezer cruise. The band will be playing indoor and outdoor shows during a four-day Carnival Cruise voyage, leaving from Miami on January 19 and sailing to Mexico before returning to Florida on January 23. Also onboard: Dinosaur Jr., Wavves, the Antlers, and other bands. While this does sound like fun, we'd probably show up to an ordinary venue to hear "Say It Ain't So" and some other hits. But sure: Play it on a cruise! [Official site via Billboard]
