Dream Setlist: Jimmy Eat World edition
MEET: Jimmy Eat World. Oh wait…
I’m sitting on my couch trying to find a shiny and unique way to introduce Jimmy Eat World into this article, in attempts to pull you in and get you interested in their show at the Fillmore Underground on Thursday, July 12. I could go for the location label (Arizona boys), or perhaps the genre mashup (alt-emo gods), or the even the cop out adjective tornado (Radiowave mega-giants). But, at the end of day, I know you all know who Jimmy Eat World is, if not for the absolute legend of a song “The Middle”.
So instead of typing up a lil’ love letter to Jimmy Eat World, authors of some of my absolute favorite albums, like, oh I don’t know, Bleed American and Futures, I’m just going to list my top five must-see-live songs in preparation for Thursday. Not that I’m pressuring you, fellas, but hit me up if you need a set-list curator. My twitter handle is @aliehswalsh. You know what to do.
(Disclaimer: yeah, ok, I know I won’t hear these songs live BUT a girl can dream right? Yes, right, ok leave me alone.)
“Integrity Blues (Acoustic)”
“Goodbye Sky Harbor”
“Lucky Denver Mint”
I’m not saying I’m changing lives with this lil wishlist, but you’re lying if you don’t have your own wishlist curated shoved deep in your soul before you go to a show. Nevertheless, Jimmy Eat World are starting their next chapter of the Integrity Blues album cycle on July 10th at The National in Richmond, VA and will be stopping Charlotte at the Underground on July 12th! If you see a purple-haired weirdo high-kicking in the back with a PBR in hand, come say hi and tell me cool it for a second. Then high kick with me.
Enter to win a pair of tickets!
