King Tuff, AKA Kyle Thomas, is the epitome of the garage-rock, stoney vibe that Burger Records has become known for. His three-piece band will always look like they're having more fun than you; it is apparent that they are truly doing what they love on stage. At one of their Pickathon performances this past summer, Tuff successfully got the crowd to call and respond, "Out! House!"—a reference to the fact that everyone was going to be using Honey Buckets all weekend. His antics are the cherry on top of a genuinely righteous performance that will remind you why you like rock 'n' roll in the first place. RACHEL MILBAUER
