Howler, who were discovered by the same person who brought the world The Smiths and The Strokes, could very well be the next big thing. The Minneapolis quintet is just about ready to release their debut album, America Give Up, which will be followed by a series of shows in the NYC area. Over the course of Jan. 17-21, the five-piece will be performing in-store shows at Other Music and Piano’s in Manhattan, and Death By Audio and Cameo in Williamsburg. For more information on the age restrictions and ticket information, check the band’s website, howlerband.com.
