Jimmy Eat World is an amazingly talented Arizona band that was a doorway for me to get into alot of great music. This was, of course, before The Middle and Sweetness became huge MTV and radio hits. Once I started to really getting into Jimmy Eat World’s Clarity, some of my indie-hip friends started giving me some more indie/”emo” music, most notably Sunny Day Real Estate and Death Cab for Cutie.
I realize that Jimmy Eat World will probably never make another Clarity, but I still consider myself a loyal follower of them. I saw them live for the first time this spring (see picture). Here’s some of their rarities which includes a Christmas classic, a couple of their songs done acousticly, and a stand-out track from the EP they recently released.
