Burger-A-Go-Go's back with more non-male love

Burger Records is more than just the SoCal-based label dominated by scruffy ruffians shotgunning beers all the time. A first glance at not only their extensive roster but the typical scene flooding their festivals and gatherings would appear to make that the truest statement about the label. But it isn't. For the last four years the label has specifically curated an event catering to the promotion of bands, groups and solo artists where one or all of the members are non-male identifying. That event is called Burger-A-Go-Go, and it's awesome.

Now, using "female-fronted" or any iteration of the sort as a selling point for anything is pretty played out and low-key offensive, but in this case, it works within the context. Femmes haven't been well celebrated in the realm of music or anything else throughout history nearly enough as they should, but for the next two nights, Burger is doing a little bit to quell that in Portland.

Sentimental garage-pop act Patsy's Rats will be holding it down on the local front and sharing the stage with a grip of punk, garage and dream pop acts, like The Coathangers, Death Valley Girls, Summer Twins, and much delight from Dengue Fever, who dish out psych-pop with a Cambodian Rock flair, among others. 

Tickets for Burger-A-Go-Go will run you anywhere from $20-$35, but it's well worth it to see a bunch of acts that aren't what the music industry considers the "standard."

Summer Twins June Residency at The Bootleg

Riverside raised sisters, Chelsea and Justine Brown, are bringing their sun-drenched garage pop to the Bootleg Bar every Monday this month. The two girls, who are both self-taught on their respective instruments, blend 50’s style pop harmonies over gritty rock ‘n roll. Their sugar and spice approach to the retro genre has gained them a fan base in Japan, where they are signed to IRMA Records. Summer Twins is California Dreamin’ at it’s best - breezy, romantic, and catchy, with just the right amount of kitsch. Peep their new video for “Forget Me,” the song which will be on their 7 inch EP due out June 25 on Burger Records. The video is a mod-tinged surf pop dreamland, sprinkled with cats and crafting and all the delightful vintage touches you would expect. - Jacqueline Caruso
