Jimmy Eat World returned just over a week ago with Integrity Blues, their strongest record in at least nine years. Their tour in support of it includes some small-ish shows for the band -- like Asbury Park's Stone Pony and NYC's Webster Hall -- and those shows just got a pretty cool opener.
In the earlier half of their career, Jimmy Eat World were a pretty influential emo band, and new-school emo band Prawn (who probably owe a thing or two to the Static Prevails/Clarity era) will be opening both of those NY/NJ shows, plus the DC show at 9:30 Club. All three are sold out.
