Shannon and the Clams

July’s Burger Boogaloo bustin’ a move

This July marks Burger Boogaloo’s 10th year anniversary show and the Boogaloo folks are really busting out a sweet, sweet lineup. As tradition insisted,  the festival is hosted by purity king John Waters and will feature some solid favorites from the homefront and beyond. A small snippet from the two-day bill includes Jesus and Mary Chain, Shannon the Clams, The Scientists, No Bunny, King Tuff and those Australian sweets, The Chats. Speaking of which, we’ll leave you with this mullet and smoko-filled video as a taste and hope to see you at Mosswood Park this July. Smoko, baby. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

   

Fierce garage rock band Big Huge to play Market Hotel 9/1

Like their name implies, Big Huge's sound is explosive from the get-go. On their latest EP Orama, the NYC garage rock band has a strong, early-60's rockabilly sensibility,  all the blaring fuzz and bare-knuckle dirt of early 70's rock, and yet still delivers fresh sounding hooks destined for earworm status. The band is fun, upbeat, and the perfect companion to a late-night highway drive with the windows down. Check them out at the Market Hotel on September 1st in support of Shannon and the Clams and White Mystery. -Olivia Sisinni

Shannon and the Clams Mane and Marriage + Cancer Play The Knockout TONIGHT

Shannon and the Clams will be sharing a bill with Mane and Marriage + Cancer at the Knockout in San Francisco. Opening the show is Mane, an all-girl band from San Francisco. Drawing from '80s goth and post-punk, they have cornered the market for music that is "garnet meets violet meets meatlocker."

Marriage + Cancer is a band based out of Portland, Oregon. Playing a brand of music called "pissed pop" with reverb-filled vocals and almost surf rock guitar licks, the band is not be missed as they make rounds all the way from the Northwest. Throughout their career spanning multiple albums, Shannon and the Clams have demonstrated their love for all things '60s. Whether they be under the influence of '60s pop, surf rock, or R&B one thing is for sure - they put on a hell of a show. -Erin Dage
