Twenty years of music in two hours. Sound impossible? Not for the veteran musicians of Jimmy Eat World. Band members Jim Adkins, Tom Linton, Zach Lind and Rick Burch were up for the challenge and delivered on some of their biggest hits at SLO Brewing Co. this past Tuesday night.
Not many bands can say they have known each other since preschool and grade school. With eight albums, 20 years and many tours under its belt, Jimmy Eat World is a veteran band that consistently makes relevant music. What’s its secret? Jimmy Eat World guitarist and backing vocalist Tom Linton believes it is because of the bond they have as a band.
Jimmy Eat World will be heating things up at the Veterans’ Auditorium in San Luis Obispo Oct. 1 to celebrate the release of their sixth full-length album,”Invented.”
