10 Best Hipster Halloween Costumes From the Growlers' Beach Goth Party
Matt Oliver / OC Weekly
Over the weekend,the Growlers'
Beach Goth Party blessed us with the union of two amazing things...Halloween and a day on the playa. In celebration of their newly-released albumHung at Heart
, the OC psych/surf tribe brought out a slew of bands to theObservatory
including Audacity, Thee Raincats, Tomorrow's Tulips and many more. Despite not having actual sand between our toes during the show (Santa Ana is a long way from Trestles, bro), the gothic vibe was definitely in full effect. With a wide array of mask-wearing blood-spattered, gimmicky guises, we saw a spooky side of hipsterdom that certainly warrants a recap--and trust us, it's not just a whole bunch of shots of zombies with ironic mustaches. Here are some of the best ones we saw. All images by Matt Oliver. See the rest of this slide showhere
