Mom Jeans, a four-piece ensemble based in Berkeley, California put on quite a show at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland, Oregon. A little less than a year after the release of their 2018 album “Puppy Love”, Mom jeans has graced the stage during their brief stint on the “Sad Summer Tour” helmed by pop-punk icons State Champs, The Maine and Mayday Parade.

Though their music is very subdued in nature, poking into the emotional side of an otherwise pop punk presence, their stage presence was not only entertaining but also very energetic, paying great homage to their punk roots. With many leg kicks and on the spot guitar solos, ‘Mom Jeans’ puts on an excellent show for all ages to enjoy.
