The upcoming Burgerama 5, presented by Spaceland Presents, and Burgermania 9 at SXSW will be sponsored by professional audio recording equipment company TASCAM. A long-time supporter of Burger Records artists and Burger Rock ’N’ Roll Radio, TASCAM said of the sponsorship; “we are excited to be working w/Burger Records and supporting new music. The DIY work ethic and philosophy of Burger and their bands go hand in hand with what TASCAM products were made for – doing it yourself and doing it your way.”
Returning after a five-year hiatus, Burgerama 5 is an all-ages mini-festival happening Saturday, March 9th at The Echo/Echoplex in LA. The event features over 30 bands with cult superstars The Mummies and Burger Records favorites The Flamin’ Groovies headlining. Tickets start at just $25.00 and are available to purchase at the Spaceland Presents website.
Celebrating its 9th year, Burgermania is one of the largest showcase events at the annual SXSW festival. Taking place at Hotel Vegas on March 21 and 22, Burgermania 9 includes over 90 bands/artists and an official SXSW showcase section in the event. TASCAM’s support of the event, along with fellow sponsors Sun Bum, Crosley, and ACM@UCO, makes it possible for Burger Records to launch an artist grants initiative to assist Burgermania performers with some of the expenses associated with playing at SXSW.
Recorded in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Silhouettes was mixed by bass player Kate Derringer and mastered by Jim Diamond (The White Stripes, The Dirtbombs, Ghetto Recorders). The album combines 60s garage-psychedelia and 21st-century modern pop-art, yet remains deeply rooted in a raw, untouchable Detroit sound. Shadow Show are guitarist Ava East, bassist Kate Derringer and drummer Kerrigan Pearce, the group made their debut in August of 2018.

Sponsoring Burgermania 9 are eco-conscious sun care brand Sun Bum, turntable and cassette player manufacturer Crosley, music business, performance, and production school ACM@UCO, and professional audio gear manufacturer TASCAM. These sponsorships have made it possible for us to launch artist grants to help offset some expenses for those playing Burgermania this year. The Burgermania 9 Artist Grant application period is open through February 29th and grants are available to artists participating in Burgermania 9 only.

Enter to win a pair of one-of-a-kind prototype Moxi roller skates in size 7 signed by the band Shadow Show AND copies of Shadow Show’s debut album ‘Silhouettes’ on CD, cassette, and vinyl!! Contest ends February 14th so enter now!
Detroit-based girl-group Shadow Show has released the first music video from their upcoming debut album Silhouettes out February 14. The video, for the 60s psych-rock inspired track “Charades,” premiered today exclusively on the IGTV and Youtube channels of Southern California Roller-skate company Moxi, whose colorful Lolly roller skates are featured in the video.
Shot in the band’s hometown of Detroit, and directed by Bobby Harlow of The Go, the video for “Charades” was filmed entirely with a super-8 camera, a reflection of Shadow Shows retro style and sound. About filming in and around Detroit, band member Kerrigan Pearce (drums) said, “we wanted to include all of the things that make Detroit home to us. The live footage was shot at UFO Factory, owned by local musician Dion Fischer. The rest was filmed in various places, such as Belle Isle, Detroit African Bead Museum, and another favorite bar Outer Limits Lounge.”
Canadian garage rockers Dead Ghosts new music video for the track,“Drugstore Supplies” premiered today on the Shindig! magazine website. “Drugstore Supplies” is the first single release from the group’s upcoming album Automatic Changer, out April 24.
Formed nearly a decade ago in Vancouver, Canada, Dead Ghosts grew out of founders Byran Nicol (vocals/guitar), Drew Wilky (guitar), and Mike Wilky’s (drums) desire to hang out, listen to records and play music. After the trio uploaded a few demos to Myspace, this was 2008, after all, the group were offered the opportunity to release a single via a small Iowa-based punk label. The single quickly led to the group’s first full-length self-titled album. By 2015 the group had joined the Burger Records roster and released two more albums, Can’t Get No and Love and Death and All the Rest.
With time the band added two members, bass player Mauricio “Moe” Chiumento and organist Craig Pettman. Playing a distinctive brand of swaggering, blues-infused lo-fi rock, the five-piece quickly won over transatlantic fans and scored fresh fodder for their lyrics with their punk-rock antics.
We are pleased to announce the release of Da Crime-Click’s cult classic debut hip-hop album Million Ways 2 Murda on cassette, CD, and, for the first time, vinyl. Originally released in the mid-90s, Million Wayz 2 Murda started as a self-distributed cassette that the group would sell to local stereo shops around their hometown of Memphis. Through word of mouth the cassette sold out week after week and the group developed a rabid following around town. As Crime-Click member Il Tone explained, “it was strange because we was (sic) just having fun and it turned into something big.”
The group, consisting of members II Tone, Mac Montese, Yung Madness, Big Cheese, K-D, and K. Redd, relocated to California and began work on a followup album Block Bleeders which they finished in 2005. However, due to personal issues in the group including the incarceration of some members, Block Bleeders was never released and remains shelved to this day.
