Additional Information

Southern California’s Burger Records has a reputation for releasing numerous tapes and records, hosting insanely fun shows and festivals, and being a home to countless emerging garage, pop, and punk bands around the world. The label has picked up a lot of steam in the last year and they show no signs of slowing down. It only makes sense that the dudes at Burger would continue to spread this infectious passion for rock and roll across the globe and they’re doing it on March 8th in the form of Burger Revolution Day, a day dedicated to all things Burger! We're stoked to team up with our bodacious buddies at Burger once again and we’re damn proud to be joining the Burger Revolution by hosting our own showcase tonight. Chicago's STRYCHNINE combines elements of glam and post punk to create carefully arranged pop songs and they’ve just released a new tape so be sure to grab it on your way out. FLETCHER C JOHNSON, a three piece hailing from Brooklyn, blends garage-rock and folk sensibilities while maintaining a strong foothold in Beatles-esque pop. JOHN WESLEY COLEMAN returns having played here at a Free Monday back in December and the self-proclaimed “trash poet” incorporates indie rock slack with witty storytelling. In 2012 he released two full lengths, The Last Donkey Show on the indubitably excellent Goner Records and Trans Am Summer Blues on Tic Tac Totally, both offering more of his uniquely colorful tales with a hint of maturity. Milwaukee's JAILL returns to the Bottle for an early slot of scrappy, racing rock’n’roll. The trio released their last LP Traps on Sub Pop last summer and they’re widely considered one of the Midwest's more promising garage-rock bands. THE HALF RATS return to open the showcase with their youthful, surfy, and fun-as-hell garage-punk rawk.
