Back in May, we announced the stacked lineup for the 9th Annual Burnhearts/Pabst Street Party, which is taking place on Bay View’s Potter Avenue on Saturday, July 2. Well, most of the lineup. Today, Milwaukee Record—a proud media sponsor—is happy to announce the long-running block party’s headliner is Direct Hit!
Following Friday’s release of the band’s excellent new album, Wasted Mind, on Fat Wreck Chords and last night’s release show at The Metal Grill, Burnhearts can now officially announce the city’s premier pop-punkers will close out the event, which also features WebsterX, Space Raft, Tigernite, and New Boyz Club.
We have no idea how a band whose rally cry is “Fuck you, get pumped!” that just put out a concept album about a drug trip will adapt its material to fit the family-friendly affair, but we’re excited to see them try to pull it off.
