Parx Casino Presents ALT 104.5’s Friendsgiving: A Concert For A Cause

Jimmy Eat World, Spoon’s Britt Daniel & Alex Fischel, and TALK

Thursday, December 8, 2022

Jimmy Eat World is celebrating nearly three decades and 10 albums of existence, all but one with the current lineup of lead vocalist and lead guitarist Jim Adkins, rhythm guitarist and backing vocalist Tom Linton, bassist Rick Burch, and drummer Zach Lind. The Mesa, AZ, four-piece commercial breakthrough came with the release of several singles from their album Bleed American, with “The Middle” hitting No. 1 on the Billboard Alternative Airplay chart and peaking at No. 5 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, where it spent 33 weeks total on that chart. Futures, their follow-up to BA, featured “Pain,” which also hit No. 1 on the Billboard Alternative Airplay chart, made Billboard’s Hot 100 (No. 93), and is RIAA-certified Gold. In October 2019, the band released their tenth album, the critically acclaimed Surviving, which became one of three “chapters” of their 2021 globally streamed series that also includes Futures (Chapter V) and Clarity (Chapter III), performed in their entirety (now available on their YouTube page, here).

Spoon is an American indie rock band from Austin, Texas. The band was formed in late 1993 by lead singer/guitarist Britt Daniel and drummer Jim Eno. Current members also include Eric Harvey (keyboard, guitar, percussion, backing vocals) and Rob Pope (bass, backing vocals – replaced Joshua Zarbo in 2007). After releasing their debut LP Telephono on Matador Records, the band signed with Elektra in 1998, but the contract was dropped soon after the band released A Series of Sneaks. In response, the band released a two-song single titled The Agony of Laffitte (referring to Elektra A&R man Ron Laffitte). Eventually, they signed to Merge Records. Spoon has been met with widespread critical acclaim. Girls Can Tell, released in 2001, sold more copies than both their previous releases combined. Kill the Moonlight accomplished the same feat a year later. Gimme Fiction was released on May 10, 2005, and continued the trend of increasing popularity for the band.
