Soul Clap

If you're just joining us, start with PART ONE before continuing on....

Saturday morning we all woke up in the Bahamas, hit the buffet and the pool before the next show, fueling up for a day on the beach and a night at Senor Frogs. Situated on deck chairs with coconuts in hand, two pro-surfers were up-and-at-em bright and early. Alek Parker and Dylan Graves were there to judge Jonathan Toubin's late-night Soul Clap party, along with John Norris, Ben Blackwell from the Dirtbombs and others. Parker and Graves set the tone and brought the party - and their bathrobes - to the Lido Deck.

The Vivian Girls held court poolside and Kickball Katy (aka Katy Goodman aka La Sera who plays NYC shows with Tennis this week) won the hearts and lots of hugs from all the kids on board. In their set on Saturday at Senor Frogs they sounded more confident and melodious than I'd ever seen them before, finally growing into their echo chamber garage sound, or maybe it was the fruity "yard long" drinks their biggest fan (seriously, he had a different Vivian Girls t-shirt for every day of the cruise) bought for each of them before the show. Watch out for a cameo from them in the forthcoming Black Lips video.

New Orleans based Quintron and Miss Pussycat closed out the Bruise Cruise with their psychedelic organ fest. Miss Pussycat brought along her absolutely delightful puppet show for that morning's "Pancakes and Puppets" breakfast. I didn't see enough of The Strange Boys - if they'd played just one more set I suspect they might have been my faves, but at least that means I have something to look forward to the next time they play New York. They were on the bill at Senor Frogs and I loved their jangly guitars, open sound and the tight and twisted vocals from Ryan Sambol. And ditto for Miami youngsters The Jacuzzi Boys who were loved by many, including John Dwyer from Thee Oh Sees. After all the bands had finished playing at Senor Frogs on Saturday, Dwyer grabbed his beer and said he was off to tell The Jacuzzi Boys "they were the best thing [he'd] seen at this thing."

Turbo Fruits

Ty Segall's one short set on Saturday before Thee Oh Sees wasn't enough - Ty Segall opened the festival on board the ship that day and played a restrained and somewhat shy set behind his curtain of hair. Someone commented that if they work on their stage presence one day they might grow up to be like Thee Oh Sees.

Everyone was curious how the Bruisers (aka the people there for the bands) would get along with the "normal' cruisers (who were also on the same ship) (Bruisers were given wristbands so the cruise staff knew they were allowed in the shows), and I'd like to think that we brought a little something-something to people's normal, regular vacation. Poolside at a photo shoot with Turbo Fruits (see above) one very nice lady asked me, completely unperturbed about the quadruple cannonball photo-op that splashed everyone, "Is that one of the bands on the Bruise Cruise?" I told her it was Turbo Fruits. "Oh, I've never heard of them," she said a little sadly, then she looked at the bright side, "But at least now I can tell people I saw them!"

You already saw one set of pictures. The rest of the pictures from the Bruise Cruise continue below...

Here the fuck we go again... It must be such a hard life to sit around in NYC every day in your life pretending you're a starving artist/musician/poet, waking up at noon each day and making your way into part-time shift at the local barista (if you feel like coming in at all, since you know, your parents pay 75% of your rent and your grandpappy sends you 1000k a month for leisure expenses) then setting out for a hipster cruise complete with pasty white trustfundarians, a special appearance by The Hipster Grifter, Kickball Katy and that French guy you fucked two months ago at the film festival. Meanwhile, some of us work full-time jobs that barely pay the bills, can't remember what the ocean looks like for the life of us and rely on free shows to see any band play these days. I wish this cruise was the the Titanic, same end result and all.

Jeez, don't fucking complain about something if you can't afford it. That's not our fault for being fortunate enough to enjoy life. Some of us have jobs and earned it. I was there. I met some cool people. Sure some of them were the douchebaggy types but there were a lot of people like me who put our money down on a neat vaca concept (and I only take one vacation a year so it's not like I travel the world monthly on a yacht or something like these comments make it out to sound.) It was a great way to relax, enjoy bands I enjoy and for what it's worth, my friend said he walked in on Jerod from Black Lips balls deep in Kickball Katy.

Yes, 10:29. It seems like MTV News' John Norris was there. Check out the video posted by 10:20.

Not that Norris gives this thing any legitimacy. If it was Kurt Loder then it would be a different story.

It's me again, 11:11. If I wasn't born yet when this Svevonius character was around releasing stuff, then that makes him and the rest of everyone who attended pretty lame for hitting up this quarter-life crisis hipster cruise. As 1:04 says, "kinda sad." Hipsters, I show you the future you have to look forward to: Clinging onto your youth and relevance on a cruise wearing PacSun clothes like a past-his-prime John Norris or dancing around in an ugly red suit like some legendary-turned-burnout hipster two decades older than you.

This is all so silly. Music/appearance is subjective to taste. If this were a metal, or some hippie band, or some freak-folk cruise there'd be just as many comments about sausages and bad hygene. This is their thing, accept it and move on.
P.S. Ian Svenonius sucks.

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2011 1:33 PM

Admittedly, Ian's current projects are a shell of his prime...but if you are not aware of the contributions to indie and punk made by his previous bands Nation Of Ulysses and The Make Up, you really don't know nearly as much about music and indie culture as you might think you do.

Hey I wrote a few negative comments here, but the truth is I wish I had the opportunity to make out to something like this. Nothing like this ever goes down near where I live and there's not even a scene of any kind aside from suburban kids taking fashion tips from Eminem and Hollister Co. mannequins while listening to awful radio stuff. It's easy to mock "hipsters" but given the type of people I have to deal with on a daily basis, I don't know which would be more bearable. Why can't there be more in-between normal people who don't need to prove themselves through fashion but still are aware of decent music and art?

I must say these pictures really captured an embarrassing level of actual uninhibited fun times. looks like people really let their guard down and genuinely enjoyed themselves, cool.

wow, so many haters here! not all of the bruisers or hipsters for that matter are trust fund kids pretending to live the starving artist life. they actually are poor, but love life enough not to waste it being ordinary.

I work and play hard and love my rock n' roll. taking this trip took some sacrificing but it was DAMN WORTH IT! it was more fun then any of you sad humans will ever have in your life. stop judging and live a little.

did you just type that up while you were leaning on a bar in brooklyn?

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2011 9:31 PM

Guys, I was there and I can assure you I did not have any fun. Not even a little. Everyone there was talking VERY loudly, and I'm pretty sure a few of them were drunk. I also might of saw some dancing, but I can't be sure. I will not be returning to the Bruise Cruise, and I encourage all of you to avoid it. Seriously BV commenters, please don't go.

Really it was awful. None of you should go ever. Music, socializing, and fun are way over rated. I hear people like such things have cooties! So you should stay farrrrr away. I hear next year will just have more of all these things. STAY AWAY!!!

any1 who was there and didnt have a good time, has no personality or are needy babys. this was 1 of the best times ive had. like minded people, every1 was nice, even the nonbruisers, the weather was perfect, food not so much..the music was great, my voice is 1 level hoarser forever from laughing my ass off. met really down to earth people that will remain friends when they come into my town, nothing negative happened except at ridiculous senor frogs. i paid for everything, not my parents. i saved my hard earned money and chose to enjoy myself. stop being jealous, get a job and shut the fuck up. please and thankyou.

You are "friends" with people you met on a cruise. You have known them for hours, and they are your "friends."

I can see someone (12:26) is a little bit "emotionally needy."

Posted by Anonymous | March 4, 2011 12:33 PM

Black Lips are great, Thee Oh Sees are amazing, why do people who probably spend theyr lives on fucking blogs complain and judge other people for doing what they love and actually make a living doing what they love and are succsessfullllll at what they love doing??? oh, thats why. you assholes. put down your taco bell or ho hos and do something creative.

except all these bands are no-talents that barely can play their instruments. and their music has no balls.

2:18 - I can assure you that hanging out with Hollister mannequins is infinitely more enlightening than spending time with hipsters

Posted by Anonymous | March 5, 2011 6:44 AM

i can't stand hipsters. i can't stand cruise ships. i can't stand "musicians". i can't stand "artists".

i went. it was fun.

there are d-bags everywhere you go. some of these remarks are clever. some just jealous folks with no life. some holier than thou and even cooler jerks than those on the boat... whatever.

the bands were all great. the best bands imho are those that can't play their instruments perfectly or those still learning. i like it loose.

with regard to the fashion... some silly yes. but... you're on a fricking boat. have fun with it.
