Burger Records has a whole lot going on down in Austin for this year's SXSW. In addition to their Wiener Records imprint's party at Spiderhouse, Burger itself is once again hosting its massive Bugermania show, a pool party with performance from Burger bands, co-presenting a showcase with Lollipop records and opening up a pop up shop at Urban Outiftters where you can pick up the punnily-titled "Everything Is Burger In Texas" cassette featuring a bunch of Burger bands.

If you're looking to relax by the pool and catch some music, Burger is throwing a free pool party at Pearl Street Coop on Thursday (3/19). Not only will there be, you know, a pool, but also music from Sarah Bethe Nelson, Vision, Gap Dream, The Aquadolls, Wax Witches and Michael Rault.
Thursday is also host to the 2nd annual "Love At First Bite Showcase" which Burger co-presents with Lollipop Records at the Whip In.

Black Lips / Zombies / Black Angels / Quilt @ Austin Psych Fest 5/2/2014
Boston's Quilt played early on Elevation, and not a ripple in the water came from their laid-back soft psych. They would be infuriating to see in a club on a Saturday night, but against the scenic backdrop of Carson Creek, they were appropriately pleasant. If one's learned anything from SXSW, going hard during the day can sometimes kill the momentum, and Quilt were a mid-afternoon reminder that there was a whole day - a whole weekend too! - ahead of them. - [Austin 360]Austin Psych Fest returned to Carson Creek Ranch for the 2014 edition edition got off to a hazy start last Friday (5/2) with sets from Black Angels, Black Lips, Quilt, Zombies, Graveyard, Fresh & Onlys, Dandy Warhols and many more. Pictures from their sets, and more, are in this post.
Pics from Liars' headlining set are up over at BrooklynVegan. We'll have pics from Saturday and Sunday up soon. Meanwhile, more pics from APF day 1 below...
