Jimmy Eat World - Marquee Theatre - 10/30/2014

Jimmy Eat World's recent Arizona appearances have all been special, and Thursday night's was no exception. The band's sold-out show at Marquee Theatre was less intimate than last year's mini Arizona tour, The Rock Lottery, or Jim Adkins' solo Christmas show, but hearing Futures in its entirety with a two-part encore made for one of Jimmy Eat World's best club shows in recent memory.

The vibe of Jimmy Eat World shows really hasn't changed much over the past 10 years. Being surrounded by large crowd screaming the whoas and ohs of "Sweetness" is the same experience one could have had in 2004. Better yet, avid fans were singing before Jimmy Eat World even took the stage.
