Watch: Jimmy Eat World present their “Best Theory” on Late Night

on November 01, 2010, 12:40pm

Jimmy Eat World are probably busy packing their bags before jet-setting to Holland this week, but the Mesa, Ariz.-based quintet spent Friday afternoon in Los Angeles and stopped by Jay Leno’s new/old, not-so-late-night talk show to play a song from their latest studio effortInvented.  Maybe it was cold in the Studio 11(or maybe he was nervous to be playing in front of the man who ran Conan O’Brien off of NBC), but the “magic” of television sure made singer/guitarist Jim Adkins sound a bit off key during the first verse of “My Best Theory”.

The video opens with Dwight from The Office staring at “The Gourd Lady,” who is leaning into Leno’s desk.  The camera then cuts away to the band, which happens to be standing in front of one of the coolest backgrounds we’ve seen on Late Night yet.  And while it’s got to be pretty hard to just launch into your latest single without a warm-up, Adkins quickly recovers and Jimmy Eat World look and sound like they’re more than ready to give you your dollar’s worth on the second U.S. leg of their current tour.  The arrangement is as tight as the band has ever sounded and Adkins even does his take on some guitar shredding at the end.  The clip is available for your viewing pleasure below.

Tickets for the upcoming shows (which are listed below the video) are still available on Jimmy Eat World’s official website, or at SeatGeek.com.
