I've seen Howler 3 times. I bought tickets to see them in 2012 before their album was released, less than two weeks after reading about them in the NME. I saw them in the Temple at the Institute in Birmingham (back when it was still the HMV Institute I think). At the time, they were one of the best bands I saw live. At one of their concerts, I sort of met Johnny Marr. His son was the support (unfortunately, he was not my cup of tea), which I think is part of the reason he was there.
