Scranton’s Tigers Jaw thrilled a packed hometown crowd in the Northeastern Pennsylvania city’s Ritz Theatre at a highly anticipated stop of the band’s tour celebrating the 10th anniversary of the its self-titled second album.
“There is just something special in the air knowing you’re playing the songs in the place where you started out,” Tigers Jaw’s Ben Walsh said in a recent interview with Highway 81 Revisited. “You take into perspective all the amazing opportunities you’ve had since those early days and it just makes you so appreciative for where you grew up. Also there’s always family and longtime friends around and it’s so fun to reminisce.”
Also on the bill were The Sidekicks, Cave People and Cherry. Tigers Jaw will tour next in Japan and Australia before playing at Philadelphia’s Fillmore of Dec. 27.
