The Burger Boogaloo‘s second day of summertime fun at Oakland’s Mosswood Park continued with musicians like Seth Bogart, Shannon and the Clams, and the Dwarves exploring the Dirty Mouth amphitheater and King Khan and the Shrines and the Flamin’ Groovies ruling the Tassel Castle. Legendary filmmaker John Waters offered priceless band commentary and said the sweetest things about Shannon of the Clams, while off-color comic Tony Clifton received mixed reactions for his schtick. (For a recap of Day 1, head here. Check out the many faces of Burger Boogaloo here!)
Here are some of our favorite still and animated moments from the action-packed day, including the Fadeaways’ backflip off their drum set!
We missed their red flannel pajamas in the Dirty Mouth but caught them performing an impromptu downhome set with their washboards and other humble instruments.
BUCK BILOXI & THE FUCKS
Lo-fi punk disasters from New Orleans.
DEATH VALLEY GIRLS
This LA quartet pounced on the Tassel Castle with their Sharpie tattoos and self-described “doom boogie.”
These St. Louis punks fired up the Dirty Mouth with sparklers, Roman candles, and catchy lo-fi punk.
This Tokyo trio delivered a dynamic, partially airborne garage-punk set punctuated by high jumps, amp diving, and a backflip off their drum set.
Absurdist synth punk from New Orleans featuring members of Buck Biloxi and Static Static.
The Shake Some Action team of Cyril Jordan, Chris Wilson, and George Alexander were joined by Roy Loney for a hit-laden set that spanned the band’s storied career.
The crowd went wild for punk classics such as “Drug Store,” “Fuck ’em All,” and “You Gotta Burn,” and one guy even broke his leg in the pit. It was oddly heartwarming to see several people immediately form a protective circle around him, scoop him up, and carry him out to safety.
TERRY & LOUIE
Former members of the Exploding Hearts, Terry and Louie cranked out their power-pop gems as well as Exploding Hearts delights such as “Modern Kicks.”
SHANNON & THE CLAMS
John Waters’ touching introduction about these Oakland sweethearts kicked off their shimmery set.
KING KHAN & THE SHRINES
These multi-instrumental maniacs threw an unhinged dance party complete with provocative costumes and a collective kneeling moanfest.
SETH BOGART SHOW
Seth Bogart set aside alter ego Hunx for this steamy, one-man electro show set against a backdrop of fun, specially made videos and male and female go-go dancers.
