The Growlers roar into town

. October 1, 2015.
Growlers

California-bred and self-described “beat-goth” group, The Growlers, will make a pit stop in Ann Arbor as part of their 150 shows per-year touring schedule. Formed in 2004, the five-piece band has always been difficult to categorize – an amalgam of honky-tonk, punk, surf, and psychedelic rock that doesn’t so much blend as it does explode into a cacophony of sound distinctly their own. All that time on the road has formed a bond that’s allowed them to continue experimenting. Their latest effort, Chinese Fountain (2014), written and recorded in a little over a month, doesn’t make them any easier to label, though it does feature some of lead vocalist, Brooks Nielsen’s, and guitarist, Matt Taylor’s, most pointed lyrics to date.

With special guest, The Babe Rainbow
