Burger Records is an independent record label and record store based out of Fullerton, California. And they rock. They rock hard. This would be fully realized if you’ve ever attended the Burger Boogaloo, a 2-day rock-n-roll/garage/punk rock festival that happens in Oakland’s Mosswood Park the first weekend in July. The founders, Sean Bohrman and Lee Rickard, curate unique lo-fi, DIY music collections on CD, cassettes, and vinyl and promote dynamic live shows that showcase both lost gems and burgeoning bands. JohnWaters, adoringly labeled "The Pope of Trash", wrapped up the sixth edition of Burger Record’s Boogaloo Sunday night and if you are eager to keep rockin’ to the robust sounds of the weekend, check out what the library has to offer you:
