This post is sponsored by Honda and their redesigned 2015 Fit, the champion of resourcefulness.
The Howling Tongues know how to get a crowd moving, but when it comes to hauling gear they’re just as savvy. To put their creativity to the test (and, selfishly, nab a chance to see the guys’ live show), we picked up the band from their home in Cumming, Ga. in the all-new 2015 Honda Fit, a deceptively roomy car that actually stood a chance of fitting their gear and pulling into Paste’s tiny parking lot. Packing into the hatchback and braving Atlanta’s infamous rush hour traffic in order to make the set, the band impressed us all around.

Packing is typically as much about brains as it is brawn. With the hatch open, the guys tackle the task of using every inch.

Not one to shy away from the unconventional venue, Harlow had the Paste crowd on their feet and eager to hear about the next show.
