Fans came in droves last Monday to check out pop punk icons Tigers Jaw as they played the Union Transfer. Tigers Jaw is on tour in support of their latest album Charmer which was released on Run for Cover Records last week. In March of 2013 the band announced that three out of five members of Tigers Jaw had parted ways with the band. Many speculated that this would mark the end of Tigers Jaw. However, the two remaining members of the band, Brianna Collins and Ben Welsh, decided to continue the band. The band’s live performance featured many songs from their previous releases as well as Charmer. The crowd went crazy for old staples like “Never Saw it Coming,” “Chemicals,” and “I Saw Water,” which still prove to be fan favorites. Openers included scene favorites Pity Sex who won over the crowd with their fuzzy pop punk sound, Run for Cover Records new comer Petal who charmed the crowd with her indie pop sound, and Detroit punk rockers Loose Planes.
