Jimmy Eat World - March 17 & 19, 1999

Jimmy Eat World are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their album, "Clarity", with ten shows starting next week in New York City and ending in Tempe, Arizona.

This first video was filmed on March 17, 1999, at the First Unitarian Church in Philadelphia, PA. At the time, "Sweetness" was a new song. It later ended up on "Bleed American".

The second video is from the Showplace Theatre in Buffalo, NY. The last song on "Clarity", "Goodbye Sky Harbor" was also the last song of the evening of March 19, 1999.

Lucero - July 3, 2007

I just posted a review of Ben Nichols' mini-album, "The Last Pale Light In The West" at Rapid Transit Radio. This is a video of Ben's band, Lucero, performing "Ain't So Lonely" and "That Much Further West" on July 3, 2007, at Xtreme Wheels in Buffalo, NY. The Props Road Fools Rock-N-Roll BMX Tour 2 DVD contains footage from the same show, but I haven't seen it.
