I would love to see this. They are doing a "Clarity" tour right now. Playing the whole album cover to cover.

I wonder where Tessa is right now. Actually, wait... is she a fan of JEW?... I think she's the board's token JEW fan.

Yeah. They're doing a long version of "Goodbye Sky Harbor" with xylophone loops and stuff as well. I can't make it to the SF show.

This would be great.

Coming from a huge JEW fan who includes "Clarity" in his top ten favorite albums - It'd simply be impossible. I love JEW but they're not headlining material, and Clarity is like 65 min long.

I just went to one of the Clarity shows. It was nice to see them play the album in full, but the venue I went to sucked and the crowd was filled with annoying pot smoking, pushpit-starting, fight-starting college kids whose musical growth has been stunted so that put a damper on things.

It was my 3rd time seeng J.E.W. in the past 10 years, and you know what? It kind of felt like every other J.E.W. show I had been to before. Aside from a few songs off Clarity, they usually play most of Clairty regularly. Their sets barely change, and you can always expect them to play 3 - 4 songs off each Clarity, Bleed American, Futures and whatever new album they're supporting. Its like they play the same songs from the older albums, then when they come out with a new one, they just add 4 more to the mix. I like them, but they don't seem to give me anything new whenever I have seen them.

When Jimmy Eat World opened for Queens of the Stone Age in Calgary, they got booed of the stage and lead asshat told everybody he'd never go back to that city again... I wish I still lived there.

Actually there are two of us who are regulars, but I don't bring it up much... except when they start getting attacked.

I would pay a hundred dollars on top of my ticket price to see Jimmy Eat World at Coachella, but only if the rest of you assholes would stay away.

Also, Calgary is like the Canadian equivalent of Texas. You can have your country music, cowboy hats, and rednecks, and I'll keep Jimmy Eat World.

Don't get me wrong, I love Calgary - my mother was born there, and I've been many times. I still like the Flames. It's just not a place I would live voluntarily.

But then Alaska is like the American equivalent of Antarctica. You can have your snow and...snow and we'll keep Texas.

jimmy eat world is incredibly boring live...i mean like, put you to sleep boring. they play well live, and usually play their jams, but they have ZERO stage presense. i'd rather listen to them on my ipod than see them live. they are not a coachella band

thank you.

Well my brother lives in San Antonio so I am one of very few Californians/Americans who understand that there is more to Texas than hicks and cornbread (although those are the best things about it). So, you're welcome.

Seriously, though? A guy from Alaska is bagging on another state? Alaska has the lowest land : interest ratio of any state in the union.

Alaska also has the highest beautiful place to asshole ratio of any state in the union. Don't fucking mess with my state.

I took all of those myself, over the course of the past year. Actually, the one out the car windshield was my girlfriend- I'm driving.

Exactly, SXSW, ACL, three good basketball teams - that's why I'd prefer Texas over Alaska, let alone Jimmy Eat World.

The worst thing about living in California is that Shiner is an import.
