Jimmy Eat World’s front man, Jim Adkins, is a social guy for someone who writes constantly about isolation and heartbreak. As the crowd during Jimmy’ s sold out show at the 9:30 Club patiently waited for drummer Zach Lind, Jim told the crowd about their tour a while back when they were opening for Rocket From The Crypt. Granted, at least 70% of the crowd either had never heard of Rocket or were too young when Rocket was in their prime so this story flew over their heads. In fact, most of the crowd looked to be in their early twenties so by that count, the first time these fans first heard Jimmy was through their breakout hit “The Middle”. Jimmy Eat World seems to also realize this, as the night was full of songs from their 2001-2004 releases, Bleed American and Futures.
