The Cool-Tite crew is pumped to return to The Observatory OC this coming weekend, October 24th and 25, for The Growler‘s annual Beach Goth party! The lineup is stacked with a diverse range of acts – with bands like FIDLAR, Grimes, Die Antwoord, Parliment Funkadelic, The Subhumans, Ghost, Warpaint, The 5,6,7,8’s, The Coathangers, and Prayers – this year is destined for greatness. The Growler’s, who are up to headline both nights, have promised two unique sets that should be the perfect cap for the craziness that is bound to ensue.  If you haven’t yet, make sure to grab your tickets HERE!

To help prep your mind, body, and soul, we’ve put together some recommendations for how to do Beach Goth 4 right!



Unlike other festivals on The Observatory grounds, Beach Goth encourages you to let your freak flag fly by dressing in costume. We’re sure you’ve already got at least one planned – Halloween is just around the corner!


Get properly lubed up before entering the mystical land of expensive Pabst tall cans!  (And don’t forget to hide your stash).



With so many goodies on the list, we put together our top picks. Obviously The Growlers are a must, but here are some other acts not to miss:

The Mummies – b/c these dudes are BACK FROM THE DEAD to rip shit up with their garage rock madness.

Die Antwoord – b/c the South African creeps are bound to blow minds and freak y’all out.

The Adicts  – b/c there honestly couldn’t be a better place to get covered in glitter as you witness one of the longest running UK punk bands, viva!

No Parents – b/c it’s all a blast with No Parents!

Night Beats – b/c we can’t forget to get psyched out, and these dude’s will get you there.

The Growlers

Hope to see you there!
