KEXP Suggests: Burger A-Go-Go at the Crocodile 2/24-2/25

KEXP Suggests
Martin Douglas

For years, Burger Records has been America’s most celebrated and formidable source for contemporary garage-rock, slowly conquering the world of underground guitar music one tinnitus sufferer at a time. Since 2014 the label/record store has spearheaded a festival called Burger A-Go-Go, a woman-centric celebration of the styles of music Burger proudly hangs its hat on. This year, Burger A-Go-Goes on the road for the very first time, hitting the Crocodile this Saturday and Sunday, February 24th and 25th!

Atlanta rabble-rousers the Coathangers headline Saturday night, sure to stomp stomp stomp their way through a gleefully anarchic set, with Death Valley Girls, the Flytraps, and Feels rounding out the night’s proceedings and putting quite a few pairs of earplugs to the test. While the weekend’s first half evokes grit, grime, and discarded beer cans on the floor of the Crocodile, the following night is sure to contribute a sense of melody that will be difficult to shake.

Headlining Sunday is Los Angeles-based psychedelic sextet Dengue Fever, bringing their Cambodian pop-influenced flavor to the mostly garage and punk-influenced weekend. Their set will be augmented by the sugary and bright stylings of Winter, the sun-kissed Summer Twins, and the ripcord-pulling power-pop of Patsy’s Rats (the latter of whom you will not want to miss by being fashionably late). Both nights of Burger A-Go-Go are 21-and-over events, and you can find two-day passes here. Eardrum protection is unfortunately sold separately.
