The Black Lips and Vivian Girls are preping for a few days of sun and indie rock as part of Bruise Cruise 2011. After the hangovers wear off and the tans fade, the pair will reconvene for a string of US dates together in April which will include April 12th at Webster Hall. Tickets go on AMEX presale at noon tomorrow (1/26) and regular sale at the same time two days later. Full tour schedule is below.

La Sera, the solo project of Kickball Katy of VG, is scheduled to play March 2 at Bowery Ballroom (tickets) and March 3rd at Bell House (tickets) with Tennis and Holday Shores.

Both The Black Lips and Vivian Girls have new LPs on the way in 2011. Vivian Girls recently signed to Polyvinyl and will release their new LP Share The Joy via the label this spring.

I feel like I'm back in 2008, when people pretended to care about either of these bands.
