LOOK: FILTER’s On Tour With The Growlers (FILTER Exclusive courtesy of FILTER Instagram)

Our writer Alejandro Rubio is on tour with the merry band of pranksters known as The Growlers. Follow their antics as they travel cross-country here!


In the few weeks that the band has left their native Costa Mesa, CA to grace the rest of the states and Canada with their music, they have already picked up an addiction (to Quarterlanche), made new fans (finger puppet monsters go crazy at Growler shows!), and fans have even gotten engaged at their shows! Who knows what else will happen next while The Growlers are on tour!


Here is Alex's first full recap:


"Planned to leave at 7 am. Hit the road at 9 and after a few stops at an Arabian market and a few roadside fueling stations, we finally made it to Tucson a little after 8. We passed the time reading, sleeping, smoking and taking cold medicine while Mexican ranchera music rattled the speakers. We walked around Tucson searching for cigarettes and finger puppets before the band went on. Prior to the show a nervous looking guy asked Brookes to make an engagement announcement for him to propose to his girlfriend. Brookes botched it by congratulating their marriage. She said yes anyway, the show ended and we went to the motel."
