Jimmy Eat World: 9/27/23 “Fresh out from a Shinedown/Papa Roach concert the evening prior I made my way down to Athens Georgia (home of R.E.M., Widespread Panic, and others) for an evening of 90s alternative/post grunge/emo. It was my fourth time at the historic 1,028 capacity Georgia Theater, and the general admission show was a no surprise sell out. Jimmy Eat World having just come off of co-headlined tours with Manchester Orchestra and My Chemical Romance was in town to round out September with the one off show. I arrived an hour before the doors opened in hopes of grabbing the first balcony center stool virtually overlooking the stage, which I was able to with relative ease. The 1993 formed band from Mesa Arizona is still composed of lead vocalist and guitarist Jim Adkins, guitarist Tom Linton, bassist Rick Burch, and drummer Zach Lind. With 10 studio albums, the last nine featuring the current line-up and 14 charted singles (including 2 #1’s) the set list was up in the air. I had to wait and be surprised! Arriving at my seat revealed an overview of a surprisingly cluttered stage as openers ‘The Pauses’ (Inderocktronica) equipment was positioned directly in front of Jimmy’s. The place filled to capacity rather quickly for a Wednesday evening, and at 8 p.m. the three person opener from Orlando FL took the stage for a 30 minute / 7 song set. Singer and bassist Tiemey Tough and her team received a great response as she sang the praises of Athens. ‘It’s my favorite city. I love Athens, I’m such a huge fan. We love playing here.’ Not only did they exhibit a unique sound but they had a unique set up. Stage right controlled by Tiemey had a satellite dish styled light shining out into the audience that illuminated in a red pattern according to the way she played and sang. She had a statue of a cat on the same side of the stage that also illuminated red and followed the same light pattern. Stage left was reserved for guitar, keyboard, and a synthesized control panel box. For the music that came from the left side of the stage a similar satellite style dish as well as the guitarist’s pedal board lit up green. The bass drum in the center illuminated orange according to the beat. The full kit also included a set of electronic drum pads. Jimmy Eat World gave them a special shout out more than once during their own performance dubbing them ‘fine outstanding people’. The half hour intermission between bands cleared the stage entirely for a very organized set up for the Headliners. Drums and keys were in the background on rolling risers, and bass, lead vocals, and guitar were in the forefront, left to right. At that point I was able to zoom in with my Samsung Galaxy phone camera 15x from the balcony to take a picture of the setlist taped to the stage floor to follow along with. At 9 p.m. the lights dimmed as the band took the stage in silhouette back lit in blue for the first song ‘Congratulations’, a deep cut from the new album. The 1 hour and 22 minute / 19 song set included only one other from their latest release and aside from the hits featured a number of deeper cuts. The next two songs, big hits, set the momentum early: #1 ‘Bleed American’ and #2 ‘Sweetness’. The no-question-frontman Jim Adkins addressed the crowd, ‘You guys came out ready for Wednesday I gotta say’ and again prior to the fourth song a #21 charted single ‘Something Loud’, ‘I can already tell this one’s gonna be good.’ Jim’s words were few most evening long, mostly gratitude, and the band held their respective positions all evening with little movement about the stage. It was all tastefully done as the pureness of the rock ‘n’ roll musical performance spoke for itself. ‘For Me This Is Heaven’, ‘Kill’, ‘Just Tonight’, ‘Lucky Denver Mint’, ‘Place Your Debts’, ‘Hear You Me’, and ‘Let It Happen’ comprised the set of deeper cuts to the delight of their long-standing fans! Swapping out his electric for an acoustic, Jim moved into ‘555’ a promo only single from the new album ‘Surviving’. Although they only performed two songs, it is a strong two decade comeback album, one of my favorites, and worthy of listening all the way through if one hasn’t heard it already. ‘It’s always a jam here, it’s always a party here, thank you so much’ Jim commented before leading into ‘Hear You Me’ from ‘Bleed American’. The song written about the two women who headed up the band Weezer’s Fan Club and died driving back from a show was an outstanding addition to the set, the title words being the women’s most infamous expression. Charted singles ‘Sure And Certain’, ‘A Praise Chorus’ and ‘’Work’ kept folks singing along. Jim turned the mic over to Tom on guitar for the vocals on ‘Blister’, an uncharted single going back to 1999. The band saved their two number ones for the end of the regular set, ‘Pain’ and ‘The Middle’. Prior to the opening chords of ‘The Middle Jim once again expressed his gratitude. ‘When a good thing comes around tonight, it’s just like, you know, it’s the best thing in the world for any musician.’ ‘Thank you all so much for the opportunity to play music for you.’ While I videotaped the entire song I couldn’t help but thinking it was going to come out bad as the entire balcony was literally shaking with folks jumping up and down during the chorus. It ended up coming out great! As the lights went down, we all knew an encore was ensuing as a crew member slipping on stage to load up Jimmy’s microphone with guitar picks gave it away. The encore was a full eight minute rendition of the last cut off the ‘Futures’ album ‘23’. The crowd was left cheering, and we were all wondering if the band could squeeze out just one more song, but alas, the lights came on and the roadies quickly begin packing up. It was no BS rock ‘n’ roll fueled by guitar driven anthems that made it a notable show, one well worthy of attending when the band pencils in a date in your town.!” Review and photo by DAve (Concert #825)
