The S.S. Coachella: an attempt to drain any remaining irony out of the song "Common People."
Quick and approximate math:
Plane tix to FL: 540
2 days hotel: 100
Ship tix: 700
On ship expenses: 350
1710 total, which means you are spending 74 dollars to see Sleigh Bells.
Now I think the question is can Cage the Elephant headline S.S. Coachella?

This cruise thing doesn't appeal to me at all. But let's be fair, Brandon. Travel expenses and spending money shouldn't be lumped into the "price per act" equation.
Why not? It's all out of pocket money being spent on the same event.
Why not? You have to spend that amount to go see the act on the ship no?
Who the fuck would pay $74 to see Sleigh Bells? I'm sure we can find an "alt" girl who will scream into a mic over Korn guitar chords for an hour for less than $30 for the whole package
Question: How long until Insomniac makes their own cruise ship party?
... HARD doing this, now Golden Voice. We just need Insomniac or UMF to throw their own cruise party to have a bunch of bros and hoes getting all cray on a ship and raging so hard they fall off.

What OTHER ports of call?
Ah, Rill Rill. The one noteworthy song of theirs and they couldn't be bothered to play it in their 20 minute set.
6/26 Sunflower Bean @ Constellation Room, 7/3 Telecaves @ Non Plus Ultra, 7/7 Mitski @ The Echo, 7/22 Weird Al @ Hollywood Bowl, 7/28 Tokimonsta @ Hammer Museum, 8/3 Marissa Nadler @ The Echo, 8/4 Radiohead @ Shrine Auditorium, 8/7 Sufjan Stevens @ Hollywood Bowl, 8/27-28 FYF Fest, 9/24 Music Tastes Good, 9/25 Lush @ Fonda
Eh, i dont see the bro factor being as big a deal as at HARD. I'm guessing most bros would rather fist pump to Atrak than to Pulp.
Mayer Hawthorne 05/08
This whole thing screams bro, I don't see how you can think otherwise
hey supre, the "s.s." indicates it is on a boat, why the redundancy in the title motherfucker?
although i highly doubt it is a steam ship.
Ya I don't think there will be a lot of bros there at all. Not a "bro" friendly lineup at all.
S.S. Coachella does not but anything UMF and Insomniac makes will hence the: "We just need Insomniac or UMF to throw their own cruise party to have a bunch of bros and hoes getting all cray on a ship and raging so hard they fall off."
Expect the line up to look something as follows: Benny Benassi, Afro Jack, Above and Beyond, Dada Life, some rando SHM dj, Avicii... you know the usual UMF and Insomniac shiz.
