Fullerton, CA record store/label/way-of-life Burger Records, who has somewhat cornered the market on low-fi, nasally, tongue-in-cheek powerpop/punk/garage, has been hosting Burgerama fests in California for a few years. But now they're taking the show on the road with the Burgerama Caravan of All-Stars, featuring The Growlers, Cosmonauts, Gap Dream, and Pangea. That tour includes a stop in NYC on October 5 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for that show are on sale now and all dates are listed below.

If you live in the San Francisco area, Burger is throwing a two-day festival, Burger Boogaloo, this weekend (July 6 & 7) in Oakland's Mosswood Park, featuring appearances by Jonathan Richman, Oblivians, Redd Kross, The Seros, FUZZ, Trashwomen, Audacity, Traditional Fools, Mean Jeans, Shannon & The Clams, Guantanamo Baywatch, Pangea, Gravy's Drop, Mikal Cronin, Gap Dream, Peach Kelli Pop, Wet Spots, Stompin' Riff Raffs, DJ Jonathan Toubin NY Night Train, DJ Russell Quan, MC Oscar, and more. Tickets are still available.

Many of the groups named above are featured on the label's new cassette compilation, Taste of Burger Records, which has a whopping 57 tracks. You can stream the whole thing below.

Burger's next two releases both come out on July 23. One is Love is the Law, the new album from Portland's The Memories whose folky pop is not that far from The Beets. You can stream a track off that below. The other is The Life and Times of a Paperclip, from SoCal duo The Garden and their drum-and-bass setup will probably appeal to fans of The Intelligence. You can check out the video to "I'm A Woman" below.

burger knows how to be a record label

pangea and gap dream are two of the best acts i've seen this year. having never heard of pangea before seeing them i was blown away. burger's soundcloud account is probably the best radio station around.

Burger has some decent bands on their roster and have put out some solid albums from both known and unknowns, but ever since they blew up and hired a press team, they put out a ton more shit releases. I liked it better when they didn't blast out a cassette every day of the month. Now, it's like for every decent cassette they release, they put out 9 that are wastes of time.

By chance I have watched/came across lots of music men in drag in like only a few days time like Ty Segall in "Thank God for Sinners", "My Kind of Woman" by Mac Demarco. Idk, weird/gnarly.

Do people even like their music, or are they just attracted to the image of these guys? Because it doesnt look like anyone cares about the music in these comments haha.
