Bruise Cruise

The Soft Pack, who will in fact be the surprise guest at both of the upcoming free Vice shows (that the band curated) in Costa Mesa and San Diego, are among those just announced on the lineup of Bruise Cruise II. The drunken "3 day tropical rock n roll vacation" opportunity will return in 2012 and is even already on sale!

FEBRUARY 10-13, 2012


After a successful first year, Bruise Cruise Festival is back for round two. This year's lineup will feature an even crazier spectacle of today's best rock 'n' roll talent, including King Khan & The Shrines, The Soft Pack, The Dirtbombs, and America's funnyman Neil Hamburger. Coming back for another blast of sun-soaked fun will be Bruise Cruise favorites Thee Oh Sees, Quintron and Miss Pussycat, and New York's infamous soul DJ, Mr. Jonathan Toubin.

Read all about the first Bruise Cruise HERE. A video promo and the flyer for the 2012 edition, with more Quintron tour dates, below...

Actually not a horrible lineup. King Khan, The Dirtbombs, and Neil Hamburger would be pretty cool.

This event seems to be a "black eye" in the music scene, no?

Posted by Anonymous | May 10, 2011 2:43 PM

how much cocaine is included in the ticket price?

Why is this black eye in the music scene? It sounds like a great time to me.

Thee Oh Sees are better than anything you listen to.

Still....not a fucking chance I'd get on that boat.

This cruise thing is the absolute dregs of modern youth - a bunch of spoiled zombies who smell bad. The last bill made sense - those spawned from this wretched scene of America's wasted youth. This bill however is a crime. Great bands who must be getting a shit ton of money to play this because there is no way some of these musicians would even want to be seen with such airheaded, soul-less ninnies. They ought to be ashamed (unless they really need the money then I can't blame 'em).

I can only hope that years from now, the zombies wake up from their living-dead lurch and realize the whiskered mustache and the phrasing of everything in the form of a question was all a big mistake. Also the whole having no soul thing.

Bands with soul for playing people without. It's like when celebrities visit cancer-stricken kids.

Why the fuck are the Dirtbombs so low on that poster? They were packing in clubs before half of these acts were born. Typical bullshit from a typical bullshit planet Earth.

Maybe you should calm down a little bit. You might enjoy life more.

I was on the original cruise. And I had a great time, but here are the 3 negative points:
1. Ocean waves made the boat rock side to side and it caused awkward situations when navigating a crowded dancefloor. In at least 2 occasions I slipped and fell in the middle of bump and grinders.
2. The lack of decent whisky on board made me drink low budget bourbon and I puked into numerous swimming pools from the additives.
3. The food was decent, but after the first day the kitchen apparently ran out of chickpeas which caused massive malnutrition on board. I heard that an entire wing of the boat was filled with scurvy victims.

I hope they rectify these issues.

kkhan is still around? I thought the USA finally got sick of him and deported his annoying act all the way back the Germadian suburbs.
