jimmyeatworldJimmy Eat World

8 p.m. Thursday, August 1. The Pageant, 6161 Delmar Boulevard. $25 to $27.50. 314-726-6161.

Best known for its catchy 2001 power-pop anthem, “The Middle,” Jimmy Eat World is a band that has always walked right on the line of major mainstream success. Though a solid favorite among many in the Millennial generation, the band has never been as popular as its tourmates like Weezer and Green Day, and even “The Middle” was a surprise hit single. To the casual listener, Jimmy Eat World might seem like a one-hit wonder, but this is a band that many not-soyoungsters freak out over.

Something for Everyone: Using elements of rock and punk, combined with infectious choruses and a hyperkinetic live show, Jimmy Eat World provides a little something for every fan with pop in their heart.
