Budget Rock V infects Oakland

28 bands for $25 dollars = cheapo entertainment at the Stork Club on Telegraph and 23rd St. We have an election-themed profile of the garage rock microfestival co-promoter Chris Owen, plus a buttload of related links.

Budget Rock Lineup

Total BS
(Last Herd-era Bob Seger cover band feat. members of Harold Ray, Comets on Fire, and Drunk Horse. Just don’t bring up Seger Liberation Army.)

Omens
(Criminally underaknowledged Dead Moon-meets-The Lyres fuzz beat kings of the great Rocky Mountains, perhaps their last show ever?)

Losin Streaks

St. Jorge & the Dragons

Teenage Harlets

Morlocks

Garage Rock Forum

Now in its 5th year, we are moving this thing to The Stork Club in Oakland on November 10-12. There are a few more surprises awaiting final confirmation, but for the most part here’s what we’re looking at (plus lotsa food, hot dog eating contest, DJs, Tina Luccesi Swap Meet, and more, with your host Mike Lucas):
