There are a number of perfectly legitimate reasons you need to memorize the detailed band breakdown for tonight's Bruise Cruise Kickoff Party.
And we can think of three straight away: (1) Maybe you love Jacuzzi Boys, but you hate Black Lips (WTF?), and you're launching a 38-city boycott; or (2) You need to properly pace this round of degenerate drinking, so you don't pass out in a puddle of your own puke by the halfway point; or even (3) You just can't wait to start fantasizing about this awesome nine-band gangbang.
Whatever your reasons, see the full schedule after the cut.
