Together Pangea have been doing their own take on noisy garage punk since forming more than a decade ago in Los Angeles when singer-guitarist William Keegan, bassist Danny Bengston and drummer Erik Jimenez met while at Cal Arts. (It wasn’t until several years later that Roland Cosio joined the band.) They’ve put out four EPs to match four LPs, the most recent of which, Bulls and Roosters (stream it below), arrived last month. The Waster calls it “a wiser album that finds the band cooling off just enough for listeners not to burn their tongue.” Further adding: “The sticky melodies have all the muscle to roundhouse their way into your ear. On Bulls and Roosters, the four-piece make the hooks sweeter without losing the punch they’ve had since Day One.” Now touring the country in support of the new album, Together Pangea (above, doing “Better Find Out” live for Jam in the Van) play Music Hall of Williamsburg on Saturday. Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Tall Juan and Nashville, Tenn., trio Daddy Issues open the show.

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.
