It’s that time of year for barbecues+friends+beer+explosives+sunshine!
We have all of that PLUS a crazy lineup this coming SATURDAY! It’s the ★☆OFFICIAL☆★ afterparty of The Fourth, even though Burlingtonians celebrate on The Third. Reminds me of how we also don’t celebrate Columbus Day because, man, that guy was a jerk. Burlington’s like, IDGAF about national holidays, Man! I wonder if it’s like a political statement against nationalism or something…or it’s probably just because we like to extend our holidays to the sandwiching days! Partytown! To quote Dan Bolles: “true freedom means you can celebrate freedom whenever the hell you want to.” (Thanks for the 7Days shoutout!)
Anyhow I digress.
What we have set up for you is a celebration of SUMMER (no mater how much you love America, we don’t discriminate.) First up on the grill is Super Bonheur, energetic, delicious, locally raised meat. Yum! Then we’re dousing the fire with (Uncle) Sam Gas Can, hypnotic lo-fi poppers from Northampton, MA. In the smoker, we’ve got a SURPRISE GUEST. Hint: You already know these homeslices, or if you don’t I guess it’s not really worth the hype…Whatever they’re a piece of crap band anyway. Golly gee—Buffalo chicken wangz and Tennessee BBQ are making an appearance as the electro-pop duet, Spacemen Saturday Night!!! (Wait, this is also on a Saturday Night, wooOooOOoaAahh what a crazy celestial event!) For dessert, we’ve prepared our sweet, sweet summer Secret Lover, a 60’s pop rock piece from Wo0stah, MA. And to top it off, NANCY, your favorite All-American rock ‘n’ roll, famous NYC Weiners are bound to burn the house down! (But not really, no worries, Norbert.)
BYO sparklers + bevs, but please sparkle outdoors only, and use a solo cup. This is America. Be classy.
Thanks to Norbert, the bands, Burlingfriends, The People of Nacirema, and all the F+F’ers for their voluntary devotion to the cause of RAD MUSIC.
