The fact that Burger Records flipped itself from a local label to a world wide brand shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone these days. But what you might not know is that they’re always down to throw a local show, whether it’s in their native Fullerton or somewhere on another continent. Today mark’s the label’s sixth-annual international Burger Revolution, a full day of local concerts around the world with support from the label as their sponsor, no matter how big or small the gig might be.
Naturally, there’s one in Fullerton at the record store where it all began for the Burger boys. The show features an international showcase courtesy of Japanese indie pop band CHAI and Crystales, a Spanish surf shoegaze band from LA.
Currently on their latest US Tour, CHAI’s rapid fire salvo of poppy distortion, crispy hi-hats and reverb drenched vocals make for a non-stop Osaka-style punk rock dance party. Fresh off the release of their 2017 album Pink, the band’s booked more West Coast shows in San Francisco, LA at Amoeba, Long Beach at Alex’s Bar, but not before rocking for the Burger crowd in Fullerton for a free show presented in partnership with Day of Music Fullerton.
