The Bruise Cruise 2012 has announced its extensive plans for landlubbers. With two nights of shows leading up to the cruise, it's gonna be more hectic or more manageable -- depending on how you look at it.
Earlier this year, Grand Central hosted a lengthy showcase of every Bruise Cruise act. It was an impressive, albeit exhausting display that stretched for about seven hours for those brave enough to stick around for the whole thing. This time, the rock is split up into a pair of evenings at the Stage in Miami. Cruise acts Fucked up, King Khan & the Shrines, Thee Oh Sees, Quintron and Miss Pussycat, the Togas, and Mikal Cronin are all scheduled to take part, and local acts Deaf Poets and Blowfly are on the bill as well. Read the full details below.
Wednesday, February 8:
Blowfly, Quintron & Miss Pussycat, the Togas (debut performance of Ty Segall, the Strange Boys' Philip Sambol, Shannon Shaw of Shannon and the Clams, and Lance Wille of the Reigning Sound), Mikal Cronin, and Deaf Poets.
Thursday, February 9:
Fucked Up, Thee Oh Sees, King Khan & the Shrines, the Soft Pack, and "special guests."
