Electric Mustache is speculating that Mesa pop-punks Jimmy Eat World will make a special appearance at the soon-to-be totally-different Modified Arts tonight.
After a cryptic message on the bands Twitter it's looking more like the surprise is going to be Jimmy Eat World. This is the message posted on the bands Twitter:
"Stay tuned today for a surprise announcement. If you live in PHX and have plans for tonight, cancel them."
We'll keep everyone posted but one thing is for sure, if you live in Phoenix and you have plans for tonight, chances are you're going to want to be at Modified Arts instead.
Interesting, to be sure. I was planning to leave the New Times Christmas party in time for the new Modern Family, but maybe this is also worth checking out. I dunno though, tonight's episode is called "Undeck the Halls:"
"Claire and Phil threaten to take away Christmas when the kids get in trouble; Cameron and Mitchell take Lily to get her first picture with Santa."
