Grammy® Award-winning artist Weezer announces The Weezer Cruise. Taking to the ocean January 19-23, 2012, The Weezer Cruise is a music festival-at-sea curated by Weezer on the Carnival Destiny sailing from Miami to the island of Cozumel, off the coast of Mexico.
Along with Weezer and 2,500 passengers, The Weezer Cruise will feature fifteen bands performing shows around the ship through the day and night, festival-style. Weezer will perform on the pool deck as the ship pulls out and then again in the indoor main theater.
In addition to Weezer, there will be performances from Dinosaur Jr., Sebadoh, Gene Ween and Dave Dreiwitz, Wavves, The Antlers, Yuck, Free Energy, Boom Bip, J. Mascis, Lou Barlow, Keepaway, Ozma, The Nervous Wreckords, The Knocks, Sleeper Agent, and Yacht Rock Review.
Since the real Weezer disappeared into the Bermuda Triangle following the release of Pinkerton, this is less a cruise and more an expedition to discover what really happened to the once-beloved band.
It's also the first—of many—signs that those who grew up in the '90s are now entering into the nostalgia cruise demographic. If you told 15-year-old me that I was going to someday write about a Weezer cruise that features Sebadoh I'd be stunned.
Then I'd question why you traveled back in time to tell me such unimportant news.
