John Waters, the venerable sultan of sleaze who we recently visited at home in San Francisco, presided over this year's Burger Boogaloo festivities in Oakland's Mosswood Park. He was the consummate host. Our photographer, Bert Johnson, navigated between the Flesh Land and Psychoville stages on Saturday to capture images of the Japanese foursome 5 6 7 8's, durational performance artist The Legendary Stardust Cowboy, beloved Detroit guttersnipes The Gories, French rock act Magnetix, candid images of the fans, and more. It was backbeat psychosis, the sort of frenzied rock 'n roll weekend that gives devotees strength.
