Burger x Observatory Celebrating its Fifth Anniversary


The Fullerton label marks its fifth year of hosting concerts at the Observatory with a weeklong fest that culminates in this weekend’s massive finale. Saturday is headlined by the majestic, shimmering dreaminess of Brit shoegazers Slowdive, juxtaposed with the animalistic raving of Atlanta sonic reducers Black Lips, S.F. psychedelic primitives Thee Oh Sees and the breathy-voiced, bleary-eyed electronica of Pittsburgh’s Black Moth Super Rainbow.

Sunday closes with the percolating synth-pop of Toronto duo Crystal Castles, defiantly raucous rockers The Orwells, rap icon Too $hort and soul groovers Chicano Batman. Arrive early Saturday for the soulfully lulling country-blues of S.F.’s Sarah Bethe Nelson, and on Sunday for reclusive psych-poppers The Jigsaw Scene. Also Sunday, March 13.

2:00 p.m. March 12
