It's not the journey, it's the inebriation; now that winter has yielded, so happily resume the Rocks Off concert cruises, those raucous, awesome yachts that glide down the Hudson with a few rock bands and a few hundred more sloshy fans aboard. Trust us, "cultural Titanic" is an underestimation of the experience; the boat ride down the Styx is more civilized. This year's maiden voyage welcomes Southern rockabillies Nashville Pussy and metal-ish comedy acts Green Jelly and Psychostick. Other RO acts this season include the Expendables, Drop the Lime, Eric Krasno & Chapter 2, and Indobox. And so they beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the rawk.
