Cruisin’ with the Mountain Goats

December 31, 2008

Norwegian Jewel

Go on a cruise with the Mountain Goats, the Weakerthans, Sloan, and many more. The Barenaked Ladies have organized a six-day trip, Ships & Dip V, on the Norwegian Jewel [pictured], with you and whole slew of artists. It’s the first week of February, starting from Miami and going to Cozumel and the Grand Stirrup Cay. Part of me thinks, “Ooh, a week  with John Darnielle and John K. Samson” and then the rest of my higher brain functions kick in and remind me that it’s a cruise, and not even a cool cruise.

However, if it sounds like a fun- and music-filled vacation to you, you can find full details here. Book fast – there are only a hundred cabins left (of course, it’s also just a month away).

  1. Whoa. This is weird. Never heard of Ships & Dip before. Maybe if I liked to party and there were some bands on board that I really cared about…. and if I had an extra 800 bucks lying around that didn’t absolutely need to be spent on records. Then maybe.


  2. Yeah, presumably there were four previously that escaped my attention!

    I do have visions of John Darnielle blasting death metal from his stateroom…
