Or, as Burger puts it, “They’re Coming Right Out Of The Gate With A Lineup To Set The Fields Aflame. Rock & Roll Hall Of Famer Ronnie Spector Doing Ronettes Originals! Milk ‘N’ Cookies And The Gizmos Performing Legendary Pop Stompers! Thee Oh Sees, Off! & Reigning Sound Sending You To The Orgasmtran! And Future Legends Shannon & The Clams, Nobunny And The Muffs Guaranteed To Tickle You Testee!”

Glom that list of bands at the top of the page – your dear ol’ Uncle fairly weeps with joy at the thought of possibly seeing girl-group legendess Ronnie Spector, not to mention two of my faves from the pre-punk era, Milk ‘N’ Cookies and The Gizmos (both of whom were the subject of many the written appreciation from my battered Smith-Corona back in my ‘70s fanzine days). It all happens next weekend, July 5 and 6, at the Mosswood Park in Oakland.

I mean, who would wanna miss the Reigning Sound, Thee Oh Sees, Nobunny or the Phantom Surfers, either, among the host of 2014-era veterans, either? Loads of up and comers as well.

You can get plenty of details right here, at the Burger site, and meanwhile, here’s the teaser video trailer if you haven’t spotted it already on the interwebs.
