The second day of the Burger Boogaloo (head here for day 1) brought more summer fun to Oakland’s Mosswood Park, including John Waters’ inimitable band introductions, Shannon & the Clams’ stage shenanigans, the Chats’ high-energy hijinks, and the Jesus & Mary Chain’s encore performance. Afterwards, Spain’s Hollywood Sinners and Canada’s Tommy & the Commies closed out the weekend at Eli’s Mile High Club while Wild Billy Childish & CTMF did the same at Starline Social Club. Thanks to Marc and his hardworking crew for another fantastic weekend! While we don’t know what Burger Boogaloo 2020 will bring, it might be wise to pick up some tickets now while they’re still a steal!
Swipe through for some of our favorite moments of the day, and check back soon for more photos of the many faces of the Boogaloo!
Despite some technical difficulties, this Detroit trio heralded the new day with their electric blend of musical mayhem and performance art—and a generous dose of Boogaloo sparkle that would last all day on those who were anywhere near the stage.
DERV GORDON WITH SO WHAT
After an eight-year hiatus, these Puerto Rican punks and their special Argentinian guest (saxophonist Sergio Rotman) revived their unique brand of fuzzy, razor-edged pop and psych. Boogaloo mastermind Marc was so excited that he accidentally knocked his mom down in the pit!
The distortion devotees rose again on the second day…and aptly blew the power five songs into their set. Fortunately, they were back up within a few minutes and treated fans to a slightly different mix of old and new tracks from the night before, including “Never Understand,” “Darklands,” and “In a Hole.” Bernadette Denning, who appeared on the band’s latest album Damage and Joy, joined them again for “Just Like Honey.”
