The Growlers play Thalia Hall


The Growlers are a highly original Orange County, California, band that has long playfully described its music as “beach goth.” The band is hosting its fifth annual Beach Goth Festival out West in October.

For me, I was hooked after hearing the band’s 2013 album Hung at Heart. The latest album, City Club, is another gem and will be released September 30. The StrokesJulian Casablancas produced the new album, adding some new twists to the band’s signature sound.

These guys don’t visit Chicago much more often than once a year. So catch them while you can at Thalia Hall Wednesday.
