According to a fan submission from the Jimmy Eat World show last night -- they were recording the performance. I got a kick out of the "source" being "I'm staring at crowd mics right now." Well played ManchesterOrch8.
That pint of beer that Rick and I shared became 2 and 3 pints, but what really came out of that invigorating conversation was a spark. An idea. A desire to change the future. We wanted to make a beer that highlighted a bands 10 year album release, Arizona agriculture, and just plain Arizona. We wanted 10 AZ ingredients and most importantly, we wanted to give the profits to organizations who would greatly benefit our community. When Jim, Tom, Zach, and Rick walked through our brewery doors this morning, the energy was high, and the passion was endless. We talked about our charity choices, and how excited we are to...
#futures10 collaboration beer for charity will be available at the Tucson Rialto and Tempe Marquee gigs! All profits go to @mssociety and @littlekidsrock We are working with @arizona_wilderness to create an indigenous saison recipe that supports a bright future by incorporating locally grown heritage grain from @haydenflourmills and hand picked prickly pear fruit we found at our neighbors house with a bunch of other cool stuff from @agritopiafarm too! Stay tuned for more info.
Jimmy Eat World have announced a U.S. tour to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Futures. The dates and ticket links are in the replies and pre-sales start on Thursday at 10am local time. The password for presales is FUTURES. Additionally, the band is releasing remastered represses of Static Prevails, Clarity and Future as double LPs. They're all available here, or from ShopRadioCast here.
The AV Club's year-long article series Fear of a Punk Decade has finally made it's way to 1999, and the article details the rightfully praised Jimmy Eat World masterpiece, Clarity (among other 1999 albums). Check it out and leave your thoughts on both that year in punk and the album in the replies.
Being from Denver, I felt an extra sting when I heard Clarity’s obvious ploy for radio play, the single “Lucky Denver Mint.” At the same time, I had to admit, “What a goddamn song.” It’s as if Joshua Tree-era U2 had somehow mated with all my favorite melodic emo bands of the ’90s, from Christie Front Drive to Texas Is The Reason. The difference was, most of those bands had hit a brick wall,...
In a recent article, Rick Burch of Jimmy Eat World, revealed they'll be trying to release earlier material and singles on vinyl in the near future.
Burch said the members of Jimmy Eat World are now working on re-releasing some of their early singles and albums in a different format to satisfy younger fans. Yep, Jimmy Eat World has been around long enough to have young adult fans just now discovering their sound. The format for the re-releases won’t be mp3, but vinyl LP disc. In rock and roll, everything comes around again if its coolness quotient transcends the hipness du jour. Hence Jimmy Eat World as a vinyl band for millennial listeners.
I played up until my senior year. I quit because in my junior year I started dealing with some nagging injuries and I wasn't having that much fun. And that's when Jimmy Eat World were getting together and playing. I quit and left the baseball field to practice [with] Jimmy Eat World and haven't played since. I've been [with] Jimmy Eat World for the past 20 years.
