New Video: "Creepy Crickets" - Prowler

Here is a new video from local party starters Prowler for their track “Creepy Crickets.”  The video, directed by friend and filmmaker Lord Humungus, was straight out of Frankenstein. Shot in black and white, it is stoic, bizarre and downright fascinating.  Enter the darkness below. - Alexis V.


The Communion Club Nights Tour w/Birdie Busch & Prowler at JB’s Oct. 3

The Communion Club Nights Tour rolls into Johnny Brenda’s tonight. While the tour brings a trio of artists, Willy Mason, Roadkill Ghost Choir and Rubblebucket, it extends a friendly hand including local performers at each stop (in this case) Birdie Busch and Prowler. The show begins with Birdie Busch whose recipe for sound incorporates fundamental ingredients - memorable refined lyricism projected through vocals which embody a steady anchoring presence, all while the folk-oriented instrumentation works to encapsulate a peaceful yet ever-moving feel. Willy Mason uses a spoken-singing style that serves to authentically mold to his words lifting the emotions to the surface while echoing traditional folk. Six-piece Florida natives Roadkill Ghost choir are a hybrid of alt-country and indie rock. Then the tone distinctly changes as Prowler brings their customized danceable spaced-out electro-funk. The couple of Kalmia Traver and Alex Toth lead the group of eclectic, morphing horn-laced synth dance-pop of Rubblebucket ,who just released Save Charlie, wrap up this interesting and talent-littered night meshing sophisticated layered grooves and rhythms with succinct vocals. Johnny Brenda’s 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 7:30pm, $15, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Prowler Opening for Wild Cub at MilkBoy Philly Aug. 11

Tonight at Milkboy the oddball grooves of Prowler take the stage. With a combination of fragmented lyrics, gritty backend, and an electronic pulse weaved into their songs, Prowler creates an energetic and sweaty dance party. They combine tasty layers of guitars, quirky vocals, and percussion to create their unique blend of boogie-rock. “Satan don’t take no junk mail, ya heard?” Headlining the show, hailing from Nashville, is the electronic dance outfit, Wild Cub.  Also on the bill is homegrown Nashville indie-folk singer/songwriter Natalie Press. Milkboy Philly, 1100 Chestnut St., 8pm, $12, 21+ - Michael Colavita 


Prowler EP Release Show w/Sunny Ali & the Kid and Busses at JB’s Oct. 13

Local noisy dance rockers Prowler will be celebrating the release of their new EP, Y’all Don’t Know, tonight at Johnny Brenda’s. Led by Tyler Griswald, the group will be bringing their unique brand of “swamp rock” and “colossal, spaced-out basement boogie” to get asses movin’. To help the guys and gal celebrate properly, they’ve recruited sardonic pals Sunny Ali & the Kid, whose sneering-grin, countrified garage rock is always an enjoyable listen, and the tension-filled, retro rock sounds of Busses. It’s going to be a solid locals only hang at JB’s this evening. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., $10, 9pm, 21+ - Dan Brightcliffe
