When I first walked into Howler’s spacious band room the crowd was sparse but the warm, orange and yellow lighting was already setting the mood. Closet Straights didn’t keep us waiting long, bringing their cool, folky vibes to the stage. Their country-esque fashion sense, rolling guitar riffs and the warm lighting transformed the empty room…
