Watch: Jimmy Eat World hit up NPR’s Tiny Desk

The rock band turned up to play a “slightly silly” set on borrowed guitars.

Jimmy Eat World made an appearance at the NPR Tiny Desk for a stripped-back performance of three songs Love Never, All The Way (Stay) and The Middle. Drummer Zach Lind (as percussionists might be able to relate to, if their band has ever embarked on an acoustic set) takes up the all-important role of miniature gong and tambourine throughout. Touring member Rob Vining joins frontman Jim Adkins on guitar and vocals, with guitarist Tom Linton joining the fold for the last song.

The band have remained with the same lineup since 1995, with three of the four members remaining since the band’s inception in 1993. Over their career, the band have released ten studio albums – most recently 2019’s Surviving.
