Cheeseburger @ BV-SXSW
Cheeseburger

Sunday (7/10/11) is the penultimate Sound Bites Series show with pow wow! who are currently finishing up their debut album. After garnering a lot of buzz (and playing what seemed like every week) back in 2009, they took most of last year off to regroup and rethink. With a slightly retooled sound -- they're definitely a little more '80s indie and a little less early '00s rock now -- they'll play the Fulton Stall Market at 3PM. I DJ before and after.

Then after the Sound Bites show, you should head over to the Beekman Beer Garden for the first of the summer's Beach Party shows. This week it's the wildness that is Cheeseburger, plus Hard Nips. I hope Beekman (formerly Water Taxi Beach formerly Spiegeltent) is ready for flying beer. This should be fun. With the truncated Seaport Music Festival schedule this year (and no Pool Parties) I'm glad more is going on down at the Seaport, one of my favorite places during the summer.

In honor of Cheeseburger's free show today, here's a set of unposted pictures from a BrooklynVegan SXSW party in 2010 at Spider House. They continue, along with the Seaport show flyers, below...

It's always good to have a lead singer who is sincere. I am certain that this guys like to eat a few cheeseburgers.

Is this fat rock? It's kinda right on the borderline.

Current Cheeseburger singer used to be the frontman for Panthers right? Former singer had health issues and had to be replaced?

a Cheeseburger is neither vegan nor kosher. Bad form, BV!

"Free" ?!?

As if anybody would PAY for these shows?

I don't usually make judgements on people based on their appearances, but that singer does look to me like a guy who might expose himself to school girls on the subway.

Wasn't it like 90 fucking degrees out that day? How the hell is the singer wearing a flannel shirt with a blazer over it. My balls started to sweat just looking at these pictures.

I was about to say the same thing. It must be extremely cool by the water.
