Welcome to The Growlers’ Madhouse

Everyone’s favourite Californian psych-rockers, The Growlers, have officially made their Australian return.

And what better way to welcome them back than a debaucherous, booze-fuelled pop-up downstairs at Monster Children HQ? THRILLS flew the five-piece out for their mammoth east coast Beach Goth tour, and they kicked it off with a pop-up featuring special guest performances from Kirin J Callinan and The Jim Mitchells, and an array of Growlers props, artwork, photography, video, and limited edition merch.

Growlers fans come out in full force, packing MC06 and making sure that the gallons of refreshments from Jameson and Byron Bay Brewery wouldn’t be left around for the MC staff’s future enjoyment. The Growlers Metro show, presented by THRILLS, followed the Sydney pop-up, and it was a major sweatfest. MC stalwart (and piece of furniture) James Adams was there to capture the madness, so check out his snaps from the night below.
