Yes, this happened.

Most of the people we met on the S.S. Coachella had never been on a cruise before. Like us, they weren't so sure what to pack or how to dress for three days of awkwardly saying hi to their favorite bands at a floating city on the sea. But, like the festival, the fans also brought their desert style to cruisin' with mixed results.

We could sit here and talk about all the "types" of people who sailed out to Nassau, but really, we'd rather just show you. These are the most memorable fashion moments we caught on the maiden voyage of the S.S. Coachella. Get your eyebrows ready to raise.

10. Best Shorts of All Time

Onstage, Nick Offer of !!! is like a forest fire on a windy day. The heat off his thrusting pelvis is intoxicating. He is the party. And man, does this guy love his short shorts! As you can see, the ones he wore on the ship have the cover of the Rolling Stones' Some Girls on them. These are actually the best shorts ever made.

9. Totally to Tie Dye for

Can we just say that these two dudes in tie-dye jumpers are wearing Keds and Toms? We cannot think of less ravery shoes to match with these adolescent Burning Man ensembles. They look like giant toddlers with fanny packs.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
