There are three or four songs that sound like classic Jimmy Eat World, with angular, razor-sharp guitars. There are a couple that are a lot more dreamy, and some that are very groove-acious."

Redlands CA Greek Amphitheatre (30)
Santa Cruz CA The Catalyst (October 2)
San Francisco CA The Fillmore (3)
