Oh wow, it’s been a little while since we appraised you of all the Burger Records haps, hasn’t it! That’s simply because Burger Records has been so busy bustin’ out the best tunes, both live, on cassette, vinyl, and now, DIGITALLY!! “WHATTT,” you may ask? It’s true, Burger is now digital! You can purchase your favorite Burger releases on iTunes, eMusic, or the digital provider of your choice. Your iPod no longer has to go hungry, there is now a burger for its belly as well!
Burgermania at SXSW was a flurry of shows, and Burgerama II was a huge success, with the LA Times saying “With Burgerama, [Burger Records founders Lee Rickard and Sean Bohrman] have given that rock ‘n’ roll high school aesthetic a senior prom.” So what’s going on in May? How is Burger gonna continue to top itself?
