The Bad Society Cruise Feat. Girlpool + Masters of Fright
Join The Baffler as we set sail on the fetid waters of the East River for the first-ever Bad Society Cruise—with musical guests Girlpool and Masters of Fright—on the evening of Wednesday, August 14.
Departing at 7:30 p.m. from Skyport Marina in Manhattan (2430 FDR Drive), we shall cruise the vile stretch of phallic condominiums and factories-cum-coworking spaces that line the shore, taking in the sunset before turning ourselves over to three leisurely hours of commiseration. The night will start with a set from NYC woodwind shredders Masters of Fright, an orchestral ensemble that performs the mystical arrangements of Sammy Weissberg.
Later, we’ll be treated to the ever-expanding musical stylings of Girlpool, the duo of Harmony Tividad and Cleo Tucker, who will travel all the way from sunny Los Angeles to crack a bottle of shitty champagne on the bow of our hardy schooner. On their third and most recent album, What Chaos is Imaginary, Girlpool responds to the sinking feelings of modern life with surreal synth-laced poetry and expressive indie rock: “There’s a silver lining / and a ripping seam / everything’s overrated,” Tividad sings on its title track.
Unlike other magazine cruises charging thousands of bucks for intellectual stimulation of questionable merit on faraway islands, we guarantee only bottom-shelf booze, top shelf-rock, and breathtaking views of a city wholly indifferent to your existence—all for the bargain price of $30 in advance (or, cough up $20 more and find yourself awash in a year’s worth of our fine and fair magazine to boot)!
(Note: This event is 21+ and the bar will be cash-only.)
