Burger Records Caravan of Stars Lands at The Bowery Ballroom

October 29th, 2014

Sean Bohrman and Lee Rickard, half of the power-pop band Thee Makeout Party, formed the indie garage-punk label with a philanthropic bent Burger Records in 2007, becoming well known for releasing albums on cassette. As a means to celebrate the bands on their roster, they began hosting an annual Burgerama festival, in their native California. And then Burger Records decided to quite literally take the show on the road with the Burger Caravan of Stars, which comes to The Bowery Ballroom tomorrow night. The night’s bill includes the Coathangers (above, performing “Hurricane”), Together Pangea, Cherry Glazerr, Mozes and the Firstborn, AJ Davila y Terror Amor and Wax Witches—plus DJ Justin Strauss (of Milk ’N’ Cookies). That’s a lot of live music.
