The album lives… live!

Friday night I stood for two-plus hours in awe as I watched The Appleseed Cast perform their entire 2001 double album Low Level Owl. The Lawrence, Kansas emo band played to a packed crowd at Chicago’s Bottom Lounge, and gracefully played the criminally overlooked double album, with a brief in[...]

Jimmy Eat World + Mark Trombino = Harmony

…or Clarity? Big shout out to Pierre Wentz over at Washed Up Emo for catching this one. In any case, it sounds like JEW and the former Drive Like Jehu drummer and whirlwind producer Trombino are back together. Trombino produced the band’s first three albums, and his in-studio wizardry re[...]

Passion Pit = Electronic-Rock's Jimmy Eat World?

I rarely mention Pitchfork in the guise of this blog… I won’t go into great details, and I will admit it’s easily one of the best aggregators for independent-related music information, so I do visit the site regularly. But when it comes to reviews, I try to stray from their pieces.[...]

Clarity Live

Yeah, there’s no doubt they sent this to everyone who bought their tickets for the Clarity X 10 tour, but you have to hand it to Jimmy Eat World for really caring about their fans:   “A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO OUR BOSTON FANS This is a note of gratitude directed at you from us, Jimmy Ea[...]

Can't Spell "B" without an "E"

For those that caught Bruce Campbell’s latest B-movie flick, My Name Is Bruce, it’s, well, a Bruce Campbell movie… though some of the jokes were a complete miss and would have benefited the movie had they not been written in the first place. In any case, one of the movie’s dr[...]
