In recent years, Weezer has covered Toni Braxton, collaborated with Lil Wayne, and featured Lost's Jorge Garcia on an album cover; these, combined with a long decline in songwriting since the late '90s, might leave fans wary of new Weezer gimmicks. But this one actually sounds pretty good: Weezer will host a Caribbean cruise featuring performances by a remarkable bill of indie-rock luminaries, including Dinosaur Jr., Sebadoh, Gene Ween, Wavves, and newcomers Yuck, among others. (They'll be playing several performances themselves.)
The boat features four stages and will set out from Miami next January, headed for the island of Cozumel. It's like a floating music festival that costs a lot — fares range from $599 to $799 — but it also sounds pretty great, so if you have some cash to burn, get your tickets now.
