After being brutally rocked 'n' rolled for seven hard, sweaty, superintense hours at last year's Bruise Cruise kickoff party, everyone was totally exhausted. Eyes were bleary. Hair was messed. Mascara was smeared.
It was basically an all-night, non-stop garage-y gangbang. And as we said in our post-show recap: "Most Bruisers had become zombies. People [were] passed out on couches. They were sleeping on their feet."
So thankfully, the Bruise Cruise board of executives made the sage decision to split this year's hardcore kickoff action into two nights, getting down at The Stage with explicit septuagenarian spitter Blowfly on Wednesday before blowing another load on Thursday with Fucked Up.
Now normally, it'd cost $25 to get in on this bruisin' and cruisin' group scene. But you wanna get fellated and Fucked Up for free, right? Well, just see the cut for contest instructions.
