FIDLAR at BURGERAMA

With the most artistic and colorful performance of the night, Fidlar earned their spot as the Sunday headliner for Burgerama. With large-headed characters on either side of the band, the fog rolled out as the music built up and Fidlar unleashed its sound onto the OC crowd. From beginning to end, the audience never stopped moving as the Frida Kahlo and wizard-like characters fist-pumped behind them. Just when everyone thought it was over, they came back with an encore of “Cheap Beer” and finished off the night just right.

The atmosphere was pretty chill for day 1 of California’s FYF Fest, where we caught some of our House Party friends, FIDLAR and Chairlift

Take a walk around if you’re going this weekend, ‘cause there’s a ton to check out. Stop by the craft booth to customize some buttons and postcards, or sign your name on the most epic of chalkboards – giant sunglasses! I even stopped to treat myself to a tasty little chocolate chip cookie sandwich from BabyCakes NYC. Thumbs up for baked goodies!

Hey Chicago,
At the Drive-In, Black Keys, Doomtree, Santigold, Frank Ocean, M83, Neon Indian, Fidlar, Growlers … Want me to keep going? Because I can. The list is that long. 
From August 3 to 5, Grant Park will be flooded by festival go-fers, summer sweat, and tears of joy. It’s a little gem called Lollapalooza. You’ve probably heard of it.
You may think it’s too early to map out your summer plans, but beware, 3 day passes are already sold out. Snag a day pass while you still can. 
You’re Welcome.

Hey California,

As mentioned in the previous post, the weather has been a little gloomy with cloudy skies and random spring showers. But summer is right around the corner, and I guarantee you that all its incessant sun and heat will make you look back on these days fondly.  Beach time and summer music festival will eventually be calling out your name, so you gotta get prepared.

Here’s a handy step by step photo guide on how to stay cool this summer, demonstrated by FIDLAR at a recent show in heat stricken Indio, CA.

They’ll be playing at the record release show for OFF!  @ The Whiskey on the 8th of May before traveling along the coast for a short Cali tour:

May 11 Slim’s w/ OFF! @San Francisco, CA
May 12 Pioneer w/ Meat Market @Santa Crus, CA
May 15 Che Cafe w/ OFF! @San Diego, CA

Last Saturday, the boys and girls of Burger Records presented the first annual “Burgerama” in Santa Ana’s The Observatory, with a line-up that would make any suburban garage weep destructive tears of joy. With the Fi turned down extra Lo and waffle soles pounding mosh-pits and faces alike, Fidlar and OFF! laced up their Vans kicks and joined fellow bands Wavves, Strange Boys, and Ty Segall (to name a few) for one night of impulsive stage diving and crown surfing fun. If it was past your bedtime and you couldn’t make it that night, check out this recap.
