Here is what RFT Music writer Jaime Lees had to say about the show in one of this week's Critc's Picks:
Best known for its catchy 2001 power-pop anthem, "The Middle," Jimmy Eat World is a band that has always walked right on the line of major mainstream success. Though a solid favorite among many in the Millennial generation, the band has never been as popular as its tourmates like Weezer and Green Day, and even "The Middle" was a surprise hit single. To the casual listener, Jimmy Eat World might seem like a one hit wonder, but this is a band that many not-so-youngsters freak out over.
Check out "I Will Steal You Back," from the band's latest, Damage, below.
