Burger Boogaloo 2019: Day 2 Recap

jamc17
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!

THE CHATS

We didn’t catch these Aussie upstarts on smoko the entire weekend, but they did pummel the crowd with that viral hit, “Pub Feed,” and other fist-pumping punk anthems.

DERV GORDON WITH SO WHAT

Derv caused more than a slight diversion when he and Bay Area backing band So What crushed Equals classics such as “Softly, Softly,” “Baby, Come Back,” and “Police on My Back.”

DAVILA 666

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!

JESUS & MARY CHAIN

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.”

Burger Boogaloo 2017: Day 2 Recap

buzzcocks4

Now a summertime staple for many aficionados of trashy punk and rock’n’roll, Oakland’s two-day Burger Boogaloo music festival celebrated its fifth incarnation by bringing the Godfather of Punk Iggy Pop; punk legends the Buzzcocks, X, and Redd Kross; and leather-clad jet rockers Guitar Wolf to humble Mosswood Park. Rulebreaker, filmmaker, and wordsmith John Waters returned to deliver his now-highly anticipated band introductions, as did co-emcee Chuck Ribak and his arsenal of charming dad jokes (he is, after all, the father of Boogaloo mastermind Marc Ribak). (To witness the evolution of this Total Trash Productions and Burger Records love child, or simply relive the magic, visit our posts from 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016).

The first day saw Iggy, Guitar Wolf, Redd Kross, the Losin’ Streaks, and Wounded Lion annihilate the Butt City stage, while acts like Nobunny, Bloodshot Bill, Baby Shakes, and Personal and the Pizzas packed the toe-lovin’ Gone Shrimpin’ amphitheater. Unfortunately for us, our cameras were needed elsewhere that epic day but Aaron Rubin’s photos are incredible (check them out here).

Luckily, we were available to capture the filth and frivolity of Day 2, including performances by the Buzzcocks, X, Shannon & the Clams, and La Luz. Here are some of our favorite moments. (See the many faces of the Boogaloo here.)

GLITTER WIZARD

These local lads channeled early Sabbath and Stonehenge for their hairflinger of a set. (The Otter Pop aftermath was a welcome surprise.)

The Many Faces of Burger Boogaloo 2016

bbface01
The fourth edition of the Burger Boogaloo at Oakland’s Mosswood Park once again brought together a motley crew of music-loving folks. When we weren’t capturing the action at the Dirty Mouth amphitheater and the Tassel Castle stage (relive the magic of Day 1 here and Day 2 here), we snapped some shots of the people who performed, worked, and attended. Check out the hot dog costumes, dirt-smeared faces, portapotty kisses, and other summertime fun our cameras caught.

Burger Boogaloo 2016: Day 2

kingkhanshrines06
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!

POONTANG WRANGLERS

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.

THE DWARVES

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.
