Title Fight (above) and La Dispute shared a double headliner bill with support from The Hotelier at a sold-out Union Transfer on Thursday night.

The Hotelier kicked things off with a fast-paced set that drew heavily from last year’s critically acclaimed Home, Like Noplace Is There. Frontman Christian Holden kept stage banter and time in between songs to a minimum but commended the crowd for moshing to songs about, in his words, being queer and cross-dressing.

Kingston, Pa. four-piece Title Fight took the stage next. Touring in support of last month’s Hyperview, the band featured cuts from the latest album as well as highlights from albums spanning its entire discography. The group’s ability to blend genres and tempos made the set exciting and varied.

La Dispute closed the night with an energetic performance filled with its spoken word-tinged post-hardcore. The band dropped crowd favorite “King Park” from 2011’s Wildlife early in the set but didn’t fail to keep the crowd’s attention for the remainder of the show.
