words and photos by Joe Cortez
"It's nice to be in a room full of winners."
It was billed as secret show but you'd never know it judging by the hundreds (perhaps as much as a thousand) of eager kids waiting en masse outside The Observatory in Santa Ana last night for a chance to get in to see The Growlers perform and announce the line-up for this year's annual Beach Goth event.
Beach Goth has been getting bigger and better with each passing year and 2015 looks to be the best yet with a stellar line-up that includes headliners Grimes, Die Antwoord, Julian Casablancas + The Voidz, FIDLAR, Camera Obscura, Ghost, Juicy J, Warpaint and of course The Growlers themselves. Tickets for the 2 day event happening October 24 & 25 at The Observatory in Santa Ana go on sale this Friday at The Observatory's website:
Local heroes and So Cal faves, The Growlers are known for their wild shows and last night was no exception. Be sure to check out photos from Tuesday night, also featuring shots of pre-show DJ Johnny Basil, are below.
