    The band from Milwaukee? Formerly known as The Midwestern Charm? Loved the EP and the last full length from Midwestern on Texas is Funny.

    No. The beloved New Jersey punk band Bigwig that were on Fearless Records and Fueled By Ramen.

    Why? What possible reason is there for Bigwig to go on tour? Jesus.

    Seeing how they're from New Jersey and these dates are primarily in the Northeast area....yeah. Plus, they tend to only play festivals, so this is different.

    EDIT: I updated some info on these shows

    March 22 Brooklyn Bazaar Brooklyn NY (w/ Iron Chic)
    March 23 Atlantic City Beer Fest Atlantic City NJ (w/ Descendents)
    March 24 McGarvey’s Altoona, PA (w/ Richie Ramone)
    March 25 White Eagle Music Hall Jersey City, NJ (w/ Mighty Mighty Bosstones) (sold out)

    I'm from New Jersey, too, and I know that everyone loves them. You're thinking of Youth In Revolt. Nobody in New Jersey likes that band.

    You must be confused. Bigwig was a staple of the late 90s/early 2000s in New Jersey. Not sure why you and your friends don't like them but a lot of people in this area did/still do. It's great that they've returned and their live shows are a lot of fun.
