So yeah, there's this band called Jimmy Eat World, right? They're pretty good. They figure some of their FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND fans [you know, all those people who made their last album go gold - sheesh] would want to see them live, so they're going on a late summer tour with openers Desaparecidos, Recover, and the Promise Ring [ya know, that band who put out the best album of 2002 thus far]. Dates are already selling out, so look at the dates below and act fast. The band also has plans to film a live concert DVD over a sold out two-night stand in Washington, D.C. in June - if you have tickets, make sure to yell "Play OPENER!" as loud as you can for me. Finally, the band is asking people to fill out a questionnaire to help them become more familar with their fans - each entry has a chance of winning a signed plaque of their gold record. You can enter the contest here.
