Burger Records is growing fast. In 2013 alone, they put out 300 or so releases (more than just cassette tapes), while their annual festival, Burgerama, managed to triple its attendance from 2013 to 2014. Now, they've booked their biggest show to date: Burgerama Four, headlined by Weezer, Ty Segall, and Fidlar — with an assorted cast of characters that includes a rare appearance by psychedelic godfather Roky Erickson, U.K. post-punk legends Gang of Four, Ariel Pink, J Mascis and what's sure to destroy at least a portion of the internet: Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.
For those who've never been to a Burgerama, the two-day festival is like Cypress Hill's SmokeOut meets Gonerfest, and now, a Gen-X thrift store version of the Warped Tour. The two-day festival will take place on March 28 and 29 at the Observatory in Santa Ana. Last year's event was held on three separate stages (indoor and outdoor), but no word yet on what this year will look like.
With Weezer headlining Burgerama Four, it looks like Burger Records is on the tipping point of becoming a bit more well, big time in 2015.

Gang of Four
