Tuesday, August 5, 2014 Guest Edit: Yasi Salek @ Burger-A-Go-Go!
When it comes to music, the all-girl concept is great in theory, but can also easily go the way of Lilith Fair real fast if not executed properly. But in the case of this past weekend’s Burger-A-Go-Go, the female-centric festival put on by cult Southern California label Burger Records, awesomeness definitely prevailed. It helped that the line-up was robust and diverse, packed full of emerging acts like The Aquadolls, Death Valley Girls, and Feels (hands down my favorite new act, keep an eye on them), heavy-hitters like Bleached, Dum Dum Girls, and Best Coast (pictured above in her highly coveted Jagermeister t-shirt), and Burger sweethearts Colleen Green, Peach Kelli Pop, and Shannon and the Clams. Watching The Muffs play to the super psyched all-ages crowd, many of whom weren’t even born when the band put out their first album in 1993, was pretty special, but the most stand out performance of the night definitely came from Atlanta punk rock princesses The Coathangers. Their raucous, electrifying set almost certainly inspired the formation of dozens of new bands out of the adoring teens in the crowd, and even got this old lady to take a stage dive (I have life in me yet).
