The Growlers Return to Nashville in May

The Gods of good rock ‘n’ roll shows are apparently giving Nashville some serious love lately. Just yesterday, it was announced that the Growlers, the band that helped make that fake End of the World day last May fucking awesome, are returning to Nashville May 19th (oddly enough, almost an exact year from said End of the World party) for a show at 12th and Porter.

It’s been a while since I’ve talked about this band. I meant to post about them being in Nashville recording their new LP with Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, but I guess I fucked up. Oh well. So if you didn’t know, yeah, they were in Nashville last fall to record a new album and they did so with Auerbach, so it should be pretty fucking cool. No word on the release date of that, but it’ll definitely be worth checking out. Plus, these dudes are fucking hilarious. Check out the interview I did with them last time. “Don’t fuck up, stay in school, eat your greens.” Valuable advice in this interview kids.

If you’re still unfamiliar with the Growlers, check out some of their music below along with some tour dates.  Come out to the show. I don’t normally endorse 12th and Porter, but they’ve had some rock acts come into to town lately, so props. Plus, I can’t wait to see these motherfuckers bring their deserted-island beach music back into town.
