TONIGHT: Burgerama at the Turf Club
Burger Records is a great record shop/label out of California that is the Robert Pollard of indie record labels. Prolific, talented and always well–intentioned, they have brought us everything from Ty Segall tapes to compilations benefiting animal shelters. Their latest endeavor (in addition to all their regular stuff), is the Burgerama Caravan tour, which grabs a bunch of bands who are associated with the label and takes them on the road. Their stop tonight is at the Turf Club, and you can sample a song from most of the bands who will be gracing the stage. Like the label, it skews garage-pop with variations between fuzzy, a little surf and some power-pop for good measure. Don’t miss out tonight—not sure you’ll see so many good bands on one (non-festival/block party) stage this year.
