Beach Goth Pop-Up

A series of secret shows went down at 700 Naud recently, with bands Starcrawler, Cowgirl Clue, Puzzle, Neo Globs and The Mattson 2 taking to the stage as a prelude to upcoming Beach Goth festival.

The venue transformed into a shrine dedicated to all things The Growlers, covered in costumes and props from past shows, exclusive merch, ticket giveaways, a photo show by the band’s documentarian Taylor Bonin, and their own decorated 1977 Lincoln parked right outside. Who in their right minds could’ve predicted a drag show, Chinese lion dancers bursting out of nowhere, a marionette act opening for Puzzle and Neo Globs, or a woman jumping on top of the bar and swallowing a sword?
