evenko and HPX Present:

Jimmy Eat World w/ JJ Wilde

The Marquee Ballroom, April 22 & 23, 2020

Made up of Jim Adkins, Rick Burch, Tom Linton and Zach Lind, Jimmy Eat World has had a prolific career with 9 studio albums — 5 of which have reached Top 10 on Billboard’s 200 Chart.

The band has had 7 Top 10 hits on Billboard’s Alternative Songs Chart, with “Pain” and “The Middle” reaching #1. Their latest album, Surviving, is punchy, dynamically explosive and hearkens back to the heavy yet crafted melodic edge that woke the world up to Jimmy Eat World a quarter century ago.

Don’t miss your chance to catch Jimmy Eat World in Halifax. Tickets are on sale now. *April 23 show SOLD OUT*

We would like to acknowledge that the festival takes place in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) people first signed with the British Crown in 1725. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations.
