upcoming Rocks Off Concert Cruises (win tickets)
As mentioned, Teengirl Fantasy‘s new album, Tracer, was released this week (stream it) — maybe you saw them at East River Park on Monday — and the band will play a release party on Thursday (8/23) aboard the Rocks Off Concert Cruise with their True Panther labelmates Lemonade, DJ Mike Q and Massacooramaan along for the ride. Since we last spoke, Kelela, who sings lead vocals on TF’s killer single, “EFX”, has been added to the bill. Tickets are still available but if you’d like to go for free, we have a few pairs to give away.
While we’re on the subject of boats, Big Freedia will shake things up on a Rocks Off Cruise as well on August 29 and, as mentioned previously, LE1f (who recently played Glasslands and PS1 Warm-up) has just been added to the bill. Tickets are still available and we have pairs to give away as well.
Both those shows are aboard The Harbor Lights which departs from East 23rd / FDR. Details on how to enter for both Rocks Off shows are below but please note these shows are 21+. We’re also giving away tickets to the Teengirl Fantasy show on Facebook.
Other interesting Rocks Off shows coming up include ’90s-era glam rockers Spacehog with Endless Boogie (who play Summerscreen tonight [8/22] with Daniel Higgs and Highlife) aboard The Jewel on Saturday 8/25 (tix); and Riverboat Gamblers, Cobra Skulls, and Fresh Kills aboard The Jewel on October 13 (tix).
As previously mentioned, Lagwagon plays a Fat Wreck Chords Rocks Off Cruise on October 20 with Dead to Me and others (tickets). Bonobo and Gibby Hanes also DJ a Rocks Off cruise on September 21 (tickets).
