BURGER RECORDS BEACH BASH 2 WRITTEN UP IN THE NEW YORKER
In ten short years, California’s Burger Records has graduated from a homegrown boutique label to a real and remarkable contributor to the history of rock and roll. With more than eleven hundred D.I.Y. releases under its belt (most of them dubbed directly to cassette tape), the label has become synonymous with starry-eyed underground power pop and keyed-up garage. This weekend, Burger throws its second annual beach party on Coney Island, hosted by Randy Jones, most recognizable as the cowboy from the Village People. Arrive early to get a spot up front for the Zeros (a seventies punk act), Nobunny (a garage rocker who performs in a homemade rabbit mask), and all-vinyl soul and R. & B. sets from the d.j. Jonathan Toubin, of the celebrated New York Night Train party series. And don’t miss the budding bands that are the meat of Burger’s roster, including Habibi, an all-female crew with sea-mist riffs, and Sunflower Bean, Brooklyn rockers barely out of high school who write songs beyond their years.
