Bad? Nah. The thing about Jimmy Eat World (for me) is that I found them at the exactly perfect entry point: at age 17 with their biggest album. I'm lucky and grateful that they are a band that has "grown up" alongside me, so I know it's definitely not nostalgia. Even still, I have a hard time imagining a full grown adult* listening to Bleed American or Clarity for the first time and getting the "feels" like I did/do when I hear that music.

ANYWAY maybe you'll see the show and come away liking a song or two. They put on a high energy and fun show, so I doubt you'll be too terribly bored even if you don't recognize the material. Do come back and let us know how it was.

*I believe Eulogy is the exception to my rule, so as always, take what I say with a grain of salt

Then again, it's hard to come off of such a great album like Integrity Blues. Always glad to have more songs, but this might be my least favorite of the post-Clarity era of the band.
Strong disagree!!!!!!!

And I guess I’m the exception to the rule but I was also
Dealing with a lot of heavy extenuating adult circumstances when I found them and so that could have contributed.

I think Delivery, 555, Recommit, and Congratulations are all time greats. And that’s half the record.

I'll go to bat for 555, Stay (All The Way), Diamond and Surviving.

I don't hate the album or anything, it just feels a little weak as a whole, especially coming off of Integrity Blues.

Ben Gibbard has done a ton of them. I obviously loved Jim’s. Excited to see more.

Ok so these are not live streams they are pre-recorded live performances. Whatever it was still fun and good and I will take it.

Did I do a virtual meet and greet? Yes. Was it a waste of money? Probably yes. Do I regret it? No. They seem legit nice and that is extremely refreshing.

Did you ask the drummer for some more dirt on Stephan Jenkins?

I've definitely thrown more money than usual at bands during this pandemic via Bandcamp, merch, etc. I want them to still be around when this is over.
