Cheeseburger

Cheeseburger
Cheeseburger, the Brooklyn-based party-popping band brings its own brand of fist-pumping, raw rock'n'roll to beer-guzzling, awesomely-psyched audiences across the country. Best friends and artistic collaborators since their college days at RISD, singer Joe Bradley, guitarists Christy Karacas and Eric Dufresne, and drummer Luke Crotty write songs inspired by good times with their friends and foils in New York City.

Cheeseburger's self-titled debut earned worldwide acclaim, as critics were awestruck by the frenzied and gritty garage punk sound garnering the band's comparisons to the likes of the Stooges and the Dickies. Since then, they've written and recorded the theme song to Adult Swim's hit animated show, "Superjail!" and licensed songs to the Grand Theft Auto IV video game and the Will Ferrell movie, "Step Brothers."

The band's 11-song sophomore album, Another Big Night Down the Drain (Williams Street Records, 2011), dropped in May, and features the original band members plus Jayson Green (vocals) and Christian Gordy (Bass). The result is a bigger sound that carries the same riff heavy garage punk vibe that fans have come to expect.
New York City's once ubiquitous free Sunday afternoon indie rock shows on the waterfront are heading to the lower Manhattan side of the East River this summer via a new six-week music series dubbed Beach Party, slated for July 10 through August 14 at Beekman Beer Garden.

The array of acclaimed bands scheduled to perform include
July 10 Cheeseburger
July 17 Xray Eyeballs w/ Frankie and the Outs, and The Babies
July 24  Swirlies w/ Psychedelic Horseshit
July 31  The Raveonettes w/ Eternal Summers
August 7  Mission of Burma
August 14 tba
Beach Party
With the iconic Brooklyn Bridge and East River as their backdrop, the respective bands will take the stage on the Beekman Beer Garden's 200-ton sandy beach at 3 p.m. Sunday afternoons.
Presented in association with producers involved with the indie-oriented Seaport Music Festival on Pier 17 (south side) and the RiverRocks series on Pier 54, the Beach Party concerts are free, and limited to 1,100 people. Doors open at 11:30 a.m., and all shows are 21 and over.

In true beer garden form, the venue features craft beers - including Sixpoint Crisp Lager, Blue Point, Ommegang Witte Beer and Magic Hat #9 - poured from taps along two 40-plus foot bars.

During inclement summer weather, the Beekman Beer Garden's 10,000 square-foot beer garden tent will house shows, thereby ensuring no storm-related cancellations.

In addition to a full bar, the venue offers a menu of traditional beer garden fare, created by Buddakan alum Jason Mayer, including German bratwursts, cheddarwursts, and burgers, as well as lobster and crab rolls and clams on the half shell.

Accessible by the J, M, Z, 2, 3, 4, 5 at Fulton Street or the A, C at Broadway-Nassau, the Beekman Beer Garden is located at Beekman Street and South Street on the north side of Pier 17.  More information on the Beach Party music series is available at BeerGardenEvents.com and/orSeaportMusicFestival.com.

Beach Party is produced by Beer Garden Events and Dima Productions - founder & curator of the Seaport Music Festival, recognized for presenting a plethora of indie music's most relevant breaking and established bands on the Pier 17 stage in lower Manhattan (www.SeaportMusicFestival.com).
