OK, surely by now you've read our cover story from last week's Weekly on Anaheim's Burger Records, the history of the label and their new store opening in Fullerton this past Saturday?
Well, it opened as scheduled (never a sure-thing when it comes to opening up a retail operation), bringing out a healthy crowd and a good deal of rad used records along with their own vinyl and tape releases. Audacity played a reliably rowdy set, music was purchased, and a fun time was had by all. Here are some photos!
Burger Records features tons of records worth perusing in a variety of genres; I personally scored a 12" of "Purple Rain" with a fold-out Prince poster included and intact.
There were a lot of people watching Audacity. This is as close as we could get! They covered "Wreckless Epic" by Thee Makeout Party, who were scheduled to play but did not (and whose membership includes Burger Records dudes Sean Bohrman and Lee Rickard).
The lights went out a couple of times during Audacity's set--surely the power generators couldn't stand up to the force of their rock. Luckily I got this dude's camera's flash so you can kind of see what's going on. (Kind of.)
