The Growlers and Kirin J Callinan
Some of the best rock music has been made in California. The Growlers are the present-day sum of that Golden state legacy. Imagine the Heartbreakers, but with random hints of surf rock, garage rock, British wave keyboards, reggae, country-western, and guitar sounds on loan from the 1960s. The Growlers layer all that and more into an inventive and dance-worthy roots rock show. They call their thing ‘Beach Goth,’ which is misleading. There are none of the trappings of bona fide Goth to be seen. The Growlers look more skate park or Whole Foods than faux vampire. The Growlers are touring in support of their latest LP, Casual Acquaintances.
