Nauseous Bay Area garage rockers give their all on the high seas

By Sunday morning we were back on international waters and the waves were noticeable. Quintron hand delivered non-drowsy anti-nausea medication to a fellow rocker. Meanwhile, Miss Pussycat's "Puppets and Pancakes Breakfast" was a hit.

I somehow missed Kyp Malone from TV On the Radio's performance in which he announced Whitney Houston's death. Shortly after, San Francisco's Mikal Cronin took the stage and delivered a solid performance with Segall doing double duty on guitar.

Things reached a fever pitch when an open bar was called during Quintron and Miss Pussycat's energetic set. Then a feather-adorned King Khan & the Shrines followed as the final live act.

In one of the last dance opportunities aboard the ship, Quintron DJ'd a Swamp Stack Dance Party mixing Archie Bell and the Drells' "Tighten Up" with the infectious Bohannon beat.

Three days on a cruise ship is ridiculous enough, but adding the Bruise Cruise to the mix is insane. You meet people, you make friends, but you'll be happy to see your next show back on land.
