Why we’re ready to see The Growlers live

Forum Melbourne is going Cali next month

Since blasting onto the scene in 2009, The Growlers have gone from strength to strength leaving a new blend of rock in their tracks.

Their 2018 release Casual Acquaintances certainly quenched our “beach goth” thirst and we can’t wait to have them back Down Under next month.

As if you needed any more convincing, but these are the reasons why we’re so excited to see The Growlers live.

The Cali Swagger

When you’re half a world away from the Golden State, it’s always nice to feel like you’re on Malibu beach listening to your favourite tunes. Everything about The Growlers is quintessentially Californian in the best way possible. So while we can’t all get on a plane and make the trip abroad, we can’t wait for The Growlers to bring the sunset strip to us.  After launching their own Beach Goth festival back in 2012 – with is still going strong – these guys have every right to own that Cali swagger of theirs.

The Tunes

That’s the main reason we’re going, right? To hear our favourite The Growlers tunes live. With seven albums and a bunch of EPs and singles under their belts, it was a pretty hard choice but we’ve picked our top three tracks:

Problems III
I’ll Be Around
They’re festival veterans so we’re expecting one epic set

Aside from having their own super successful festival, these guys have sure been around the circuit. With psychedelia at the forefront of their sets, it’s no wonder The Growlers have played festivals around the world from Coachella to Bestival.

In short, we are hanging out for The Growlers at Forum Melbourne next month and can’t wait to see what they do with Casual Acquaintances live. We’re certain it’s gonna be pretty special.
