ROCKS OFF CONCERT CRUISES
Skyport Marina, East 23rd St. & FDR Dr.

There are plenty of ways to get your rocks off this summer as the Rocks Off Concert Cruise series celebrates its tenth anniversary. In addition to such great live bands as Railroad Earth, the Black Lips, Tortured Soul, Murphy’s Law, Red Rooster, Mr. Scruff, the Electric Six, the Detroit Cobras, and Jesse Malin & the St. Marks Social and tributes to Bruce Springsteen, Pink Floyd, Sublime, and more classic groups, the Temptress, the Jewel, the Half Moon, and other ships will take beer lovers to the June 19 Brewfest on Governors Island and offer choice views of this weekend’s Red Bull Air Race (featuring three and a half hours with an open deck, a full bar, and live DJs; tickets range from $30 to $95 for the actual race, with packages going up to as much as $1,650, but it’s only $20-$25 aboard the Harbor Lights).
This Week in New York has four pairs of tickets to give away to any of this summer’s Rocks Off concerts, as well as the Air Race. Just send your name, daytime phone number, and event choice to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, June 17, at 3:00 pm. Winners will be selected at random and must be at least twenty-one years of age. Only one pair of tickets can be given out for each show. Good luck!
