Going Live: Tigers Jaw, Pianos Become The Teeth

They may not be used to soundtrack a Revlon commercial, but when punk and alternative greats say au revoir, they do so while making an imprint. On their last tour of Canada and the United States, Scranton’s TIGERS JAW set up shop at the Hard Luck Bar on Sunday to say farewell, and alongside Baltimore’s PIANOS BECOME THE TEETH, SAINTHOOD REPS and SLINGSHOT DAKOTA, they nearly tore apart the space. Indefinite hiatuses aside, the group fed off the Toronto venue’s destructive energy (Kyle Durfey is still an underrated frontman) and jammed out oldies (“Never Saw It Coming”, “Plane v.s. Tank v.s. Submarine”) to help etch pop punk’s place in the history books.
