A message from John Waters:
“A virus may scare the punk rock world out of Oakland in July but we’ll scare it right back on Halloween weekend! Trick or treat, we can’t be beat! Burger Boogaloo 2020 – a Monster Mash to top them all!”
It’s true kids, the Burger Boogaloo will take place Saturday, October 31 + Sunday, November 1 in Oakland’s beautiful Mosswood Park. Pre-parties and after-parties are also being rescheduled for Thursday, October 29 and right on through Halloween weekend.
Shannon & the Clams as Los Saicos at Elbo Room SF (RIP), 2013
Total Trash Productions, the mastermind of Burger Boogaloo, was born (a failed abortion) in 2009. The Total Trash Halloween Bash has been a legendary festival all its own since 2012. You may have heard some of the stories: Shannon and the Clams playing Creedence Clearwater Revival? Yeah, that really happened (all the photos in this post are from Total Trash Halloween events).

This year, for the first time ever (and likely the last) the Total Trash Halloween Bash will merge with the Burger Boogaloo for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. More of your new favorite bands playing covers of your old favorite bands! Will there be a haunted house? Maybe! Now bust out your Ouija board and start planning your costume(s)! After months of shelter in place we can guarantee there will be more mayhem, more beer on the head, more contests, more fun!
