Making it 6 years as hard working DIY Band is no small feat; Starting in a third floor Dover, NH tenement, then moving 70 miles south to Boston, MA, the Swaggerin’ Growlers have become a widely recognized staple of the New England Punk/Folk Community. More importantly, the name has become synonymous with the phrase “A Damn Good Time!”.
Since this time last year, many exciting events and changes have occurred; The most notable being taking the show across country boarders into Canada. After having a taste of international touring (and all the whiskey, beer, and cider they could steal), they’re currently writing their 3rd album. And when its finished, you better believe they will be playing as far and wide as wide as their ’98 Dodge Ramvan can take them. Not to mention, whatever boats, trains, and airplanes they can sleaze and scheme their way onto.
…Show the hell up and party with us. That’s what these shows are, they’re the best goddamn party you’re not allowed to throw in your home. Though, at one of the parties at the old Growler house, the cops got called and hung out during one of the bands sets in the kitchen. But your house party isn’t sponsored by Narragansett, whereas ours is. Not to mention, it’s a triple header with Boston favorites Larkin Brigade and Jason Bennett & The Resistance, with our good friends The Old Edison (our unplugged brothers in arms) and Time & Place opening things up right.
