Roar Along the Shore

Wednesday, August 8, 2012

There are a few things in Cleveland that are so legendary and filled with lore and novelty like the Cuyahoga River, and a big 'ol boat that floats on it, the Goodtime III.

Add some of Cleveland's coolest kids, 8 local bands, libations and a two hour cruise to end the summer and you have one hell of a floating party called Roar Along the Shore.


The second annual Roar Along the Shore is brought to you by my dear friend Danielle DeBoe and her Downtown Cleveland retail shop The Dredgers Union, and while I couldn't attend the first annual event I simply can't wait for this year.

the details:

when: Friday, August 24th at 8pm (must board the ship by 8:30pm, cruise from 9 to 11pm)

where: East 9th Street Pier (behind the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame)

why: Fun, drinks, 800 cool kids, the lake, beautiful views of Cleveland and music!

The Bands

Cobra Verde
The Stereo Workers Union
The Jack Fords
Glass Cities
Ragers
LT: Mixtape Casanova
Free Medicine

how: Tickets are $30 a pop and can be purchased online here, at The Dredgers Union on East 4th Street, at Room Service on W25th, or by winning a pair of tickets here on the plum!

  2. "Rich Girl" by Gwen Stefani. She's got hella style, a rockstar attitude, and dreams about what she'd do with all the money in the world. Every CLE girl on that boat will definitely be belting out the words and saying "Giiiiirl this is MY song!" :)

  13. well, I havn't been boating since I was ummmm....20 something. But if I were to boat at this point, I would seriously rock out to California love by tupac and Dr. Dre.

    it happens to be the best dance song ever, and I am pretty sure when I am 92, I'll still think the same thing, even in a walker I'd shake it, shake it, baby!!!

  22. My favorite song to boat to is Bamalam/Black Betty or whatever. Actually if I am on a boat, any song is a good boating song (sadly, I don't boat enough.) And I loved this boating adventure last year...pick me, pick me!
