Photos: Burger A-Go-Go Fest 2014

This past weekend, Burger Records held a small festival called Burger A-Go-Go. That name implies a dance-filled occasion, but considering the goofy charm of the label, they’re probably referring to Monster A-Go-Go, one of the most painfully stupid movies ever filmed. Judging from its lineup, though, which includes Dum Dum Girls, the Muffs, and Best… More »

Watch Best Coast’s Live, Binaural Session For Jawbone

Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino doesn’t really strike me as the audiophile type, and yet she recently recorded a live-in-studio session for the speaker manufacturer Jawbone, showing off its binaural recording technique.
