Burgerama 4 || DAY 1 with Volcom Womens!
We have SURVIVED Burgerama day one! With tons to do and lots of bands to see there was never a dull moment. Though the heat was insane, it didn't stop anyone from having a good time. Every single band CRUSHED it leaving everyone satisfied yet wanting more;)   DIY tents were set up all around to make your own buttons & color your own t-shirts! Keeping people entertained is what we do! ;)   The fashion scene was awesome of course! A sea of multi colored hair, creepers, high waisted jeans, floral prints & sunnies. It was certainly one of the most colorful events we've been to in a while!   There were so many great bands performing that we just couldn't choose ONE favorite! Every single female band blew us away with their talent and on stage presence. Dare we say they were better than the boys? We think so... shhh ;) La Luz was first on our radar and they did NOT disappoint! In fact, they completely set the tone for the rest of the day. They left us in awe & wanting more so luckily we got a chance to chat with them after their performance. Stay tuned for our exclusive interview with them!   Bleached was hilarious and won over the crowd with their generosity and humor. Here's a snap of her giving away one of their records to a loyal fan.   Luckily at the Bleached show we spotted our favorite one girl band, Colleen Green! She really is one of the coolest cats around and so generously gave us a few minutes of her time to speak with us!   Known as the prettier face of grunge, Clementine Creevy from Cherry Glazerr wooed us with her strong yet graceful voice.   We spotted this blue haired babe in the crowd from a mile away! Soko the sexy French singer/actress had a lot of wise things to say about the music business and gave us some insight on her latest projects! Soko we love you!   Floral crowns + Guitars + Babes = HINDS   Overall, day one was a huge success and we can't wait to see what's in store for us today! Stay tuned... xx

Melissa was kind enough to take the time for a quick Q&A with us about what's on the horizon for her and The Aquadolls. With the release of "Stoked On You" are you excited to take The Aquadolls on tour? Oh yeah!! I am so ready to play a bunch of shows! Where would you go? I really want to travel the world and go everywhere. First we should tour the USA, then hit Europe, Japan, Brazil, the works! I know we have fans all over the world and I want to play a show for all of them! How many Burgeramas have you been to? Funny story, but the first year they had Burgerama, I was supposed to go but I actually got caught ditching school by my mom and she ripped my ticket up and I couldn't go, which really made me sad, but now it's our third year in a row playing and we're stoked! How would you describe Burgerama to somebody that hasn’t been there? It's a really fun music festival. Lots of people, lots of moshing, sweat, and good times. Who are you most excited to see perform at Burgerama 4? Ty Segall!!
