I hope it's not going to be a cruise, but if it is a cruise I hope it's something Goldenvoice just wants to promote through the Coachella fanbase and they don't actually use the name Coachella for the event. I'm all for Paul Tollett exploring new business ventures but the idea of branding a cruise ship event with the Coachella name doesn't sit well with me. Noroviruschella has a nice ring to it though.
my uncle went on that cruise ^ and said it was too gay even for him...which blows my mind.
I have a friend who works on a cruise ship doing video stuff and he said he about quit during that cruise for how much fucked up things were happening.
Explain "fucked up."
What's your esteemed position on heterosexual orgy cruise parties, Rynoo?
The Backstreet Boys have reunited their original lineup for a new album. (Reisig and Taylor / July 17, 2012)

All the fuss over a new crop of boy bands such as One Direction must have spurred the Backstreet Boys to get to work.
Even if they're more of an Encroaching-on-Prime-Adulthood Band these days, the '90s O.G.s of billowing white suits and frosted-tip haircuts announced big new plans today on "Good Morning America," including a new album that will feature all five original members.
The yet-untitled work will be the band's first with its founding lineup of Nick Carter, Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough, A.J. McLean and Kevin Richardson since 2005 (Richardson announced his return to the group three months ago, after leaving in 2006). The group previously had a successful arena tour with boy band predecessors New Kids On the Block in 2010.
The band is currently working in a London studio with producer Martin Terefe, and the album release is planned to coincide with the band's 20th anniversary next April -- an anniversary that should make nostalgaic millenials feel that icy breath of the Reaper on their necks.
will the cabins be separated by genre?
Which boardie will fall overboard first?
Will Paul Tollett be captain of the ship? Will Dani be the master-at-arms?
Oh good. I was hoping this thread about the announcement was going to turn homophobic. That's what the Coachella vibe is all about.
Let's not get into your girlfriend rubbing her tits all over me so she can get closer to the stage or offering to blow me in a porta potty for more E.
I'm gay. Your pussy has no power here.
Also, interesting that this is supposed to be a cruise leaving a port in Florida. Strange they wouldn't do a cruise leaving Long Beach to Mexico instead, considering it's Southern California and, well, Florida really isn't "Coachella"
I'm skeptical. 6PM PST would make it 9PM in Florida. Usually announcements are in the morning. Since it is 2 AM in England, I think we can rule out a Rolling Stones announcement.
But since it is 11 AM in Australia, this is clearly an announcement about The Vines closing the Gobi.
Cloud Nothings and Girl Talk according to Billboard.
HEY EVERYBODY GUESS WHAT: GIRL TALK ON A GOLDENVOICE CRUISE. WHO KNEW?
oh good i've been waiting for Girl Talk to do a Cloud Nothings/Daft Punk/ Katy Perry mash-up
I hear Perry Farrell is going to do a DJ set on the Lido deck during the shuffleboard tournament.
Hot Chip's new song "Motion Sickness" WILL NEVER SOUND BETTER.
Holy shit that's a pretty fucking great line-up!
This sounds fun, especially stuff like this:
Aboard the S.S. Coachella fans have their choice of various restaurants and activities rooms in addition to the concerts, and run-ins with the stars will be inevitable. In some cases those encounters will be planned, like a wine tasting with Mr. Murphy.
“It wouldn’t be Coachella without grass.”

^ Oh i'm sure there will be grass on board.
