Bruise Cruise Festival sails from Miami Fl to Nassau Bahamas Friday February 10-13, 2012. Tickets on sale here.
Bruise Cruise is ecstatic to announce a new addition to the lineup, a man who truly needs no introduction – Jello Biafra! The head prankster of 21st Century Renaissance Men, on a short list Biafra has worn the hat of musician (Dead Kennedys frontman); public speaker (first person tried for obscenities on a recorded album); record label jefe (co-founder of Alternative Tentacles); politician (Green Party candidate for Mayor of San Francisco and ran for a Presidential Nomination); and most recently released an album with his latest musical outlet, Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine entitled Enhanced Methods of Questioning.
But long before all this, since his teens Biafra has been a rabid vinyl junkie. Freshly inspired by a guest appearance on Mr. Jonathan Toubin’s fabulous Soul Clap, Jello has reinvigorated his DJ-ing career, so we are thrilled to have him spinning wax for Bruisers from his very own and very personal collection, mixing together soul, garage, surf, punk cuts with other “incredibly strange surprises”. And if dancing the night away to Biafra’s twisted personal collection is not treat enough for you, he will be hosting a surprise lecture on board the ship. It might be a rant. It might be Q&A? It might be all or none of the above! But it will definitely be a moment to behold!
Bruise Cruise has teamed up with Pro-Surfer Dylan Graves for our latest Bruise Cruise promo video which offers tips and advice for passengers to maximize fun, sun and take advantage of all the amenities (e.g., free room, open bar hours, etc.) on board the cruise. Dylan was on board the inaugural Bruise Cruise last year with fellow Pro-Surfer / comrade Alek Parker. Check out the video here: http://vimeo.com/34271195
The festival’s record label, Bruise Cruise Records, is excited to premiere the unreleased King Khan and the Shrines track “Bite My Tongue”. The single will be part of a split 7” with Mikal Cronin. The 7” is part of a limited edition vinyl collection featuring artists from the 2012’s lineup. Every attendee will receive one 7” in their complimentary gift bags.
