Ever imagined what it was like not to hear a sold out crowd “sing it back” to Jimmy Eat World? Well, prepare to be surprised.
Thanks to music blog WashedUpEmo and their fan Kris, you will get the chance to see Jimmy Eat World’s performance from the 1999 Vans Warped Tour. The video which featured the band’s full set at the Dallas stop of the traveling rock show, features beloved tracks such as “Sweetness” being performed to a modest crowd; bu the sound of it, it was definitely before their “big break.”
If you have the time, check out the full half an hour video below and let the nostalgia take you for a ride.
And the rest is history for the Arizona band.
Jimmy Eat World have been a little quiet for a while even though they most recently released their eight studio album, Damage last April.
Did you know that Taking Back Sunday had a lead singer before Adam Lazzara?
For Taking Back Sunday fans, it might not be a surprise but for others like us, it’s a little weird to not think that the microphone swinging frontman was not their one and only. With that being said, original Taking Back Sunday frontman, Antonio Longo, recently uploaded a video from one of the band’s first shows in 1999.
Lazzara though, was in the band at the time but not in front of the microphone, but rather behind the bass. Look really close in the video posted below. The line-up at the time that the video was shot included Longo, Lazzara, Eddie Reyes, John Nolan and Mark O’Connell. Pretty close tot he current line up.
The current line-up of the Long Island based band are set to release their sixth studio album, Happiness Is… and go out on a co-headlining tour with The Used in support of it beginning on March 14 at the South
By So What? Festival in Dallas.
