Indie rock theme cruise premieres in 2011

If you have internet access, you know there are plenty of online sites to find new, independent music (and if you don’t have internet access, vist www.satellitestarinternet.com).  But up until now, how many cruises do you know that can say the same thing?  Most musicians that have appeared on cruises have been big-name stars, whether it was Kid Rock collaborating with Carnival Cruises, VH1′s “Best Cruise Ever” with Three Doors Down, or Vince Neil’s Motley Cruise.  The Bruise Cruise Festival aims to change all that.

Taking place from February 25-28, 2011, the cruise will take its lucky passengers from Miami to Nassau, Bahamas, along with a cavalcade of indie music stars, including Southern psych-punk group The Black Lips, the beautiful but deadly Vivian Girls, the dangerously poppy Surfer Blood, garage rockers The Strange Boys, and the lo-fi, reverb-drenched The Oh-Sees.  New bands are still being announced.  Aside from music, the cruise is set to feature an open cocktail bar during certain hours, a competitive miniature golf course, and a “soul party dance-off.”  Most exciting and unique, however, might be puppeteer Panacea Theriac, who goes by the name Miss Pussycat and also performs with her husband Robert Rolston, who goes by Quintron and will also be on the ship.  Miss Pussycat’s puppeteering will be accompanied by pancakes, waffles, and story hour.
