Live Review- Jimmy Eat World-Incubus and Judah & the Lion heat up Jacksonville!!

Jimmy Eats World Jimmy Eats World

A stormy afternoon in Jacksonville Florida in the summer is no surprise at all, but what was a surprise was one hell of a great concert going on at Daily’s Place, a NEW amphitheater attached to the Jaguars football stadium in downtown Jacksonville. The music of Incubus, Jimmy Eat World, and Judah & The Lion were raining down on the massive crowd on a Monday night.

Judah & The Lion opened up the night with the early concert goers that braved the rain that came earlier in the evening, but that did not stop them from flowing into the amphitheater early to enjoy some great from the band. As fans steadily filled in, Judah & and The Lion played “Suit and Jacket” right off the bat and ending there short set with there hit “Take It All Back“. The band did what an opener should do, the got the energy flowing.

Jimmy Eat World stormed onto the stage next, out supporting “Integrity Blues”, as the steamy crowd seemed to be settling in and making their way to their seats, not wanting to miss one second of an epic band like JEW. The band Jim Adkins – Vocals, guitars, Tom Linton – Guitars, vocals, Rick Burch – bass, Zach Lind – Drums, ran out on the stage to a thunderous cheer for the 5000+ attendance. The guys went straight at it going into “Sure and Certain” to bring the crowd to their feets and cheering!. The guys have never sounded better. They really know to play to the crowd like it is their own little concert in their back yard. The stage set up is really cool with actually street lights on stage to give that backyard vibe. Jim and the band ripped through 15  songs to the delight of their fans. They ramped it us with songs like a new on call “Pass The Baby” that I really liked, the ending is really intense and one of the hardest hitting music I have heard from the band. By the end of the show, the crowd hot and heavy to hear all the hits that that is just as they gave them. “Sweetness” comes on and the place just goes nuts. The finally was the 2010 hit “The Middle“, which saw the people dancing in the aisles and singing along to where you couldn’t hear the band was Epic!


Incubus headlined the show and came out swinging as the crowd went crazy. Incubus is out on this “8 Tour”, supporting their new album titled “8”. Brandon and the band started off this set with “Glitterbomb” that had the crowd from the front to the back, up and rocking out. By this time the sun was setting and making for a great back drop for the band.Why is Incubus always so classy??? they’re by far the most elegant sounding alternative rock band, they sound like pure luxury. I’m not gonna lie but I really miss their old sound 🙁 I love them, been listening for almost 20 years ever since I heard them on Much Music when I was a child buuuut what happened to the funky bass lines, Mike’s technicality, Brandon’s poetic and thought provoking lyrics? Ugh, I get that they’re going to change over the course of their careers and I still enjoy them but you can’t beat that heavy 90s rock. But they did go back to their roots and played some classic Incubus here and there. It was a great mix of new and old, Like “Love Hurts”  and the smash hit ” Wish You Were Here“. Brandon and the boy but one hell of a show for the Jacksonville fans. The stage was set up exquisite with a circular screen in the back ground giving off a hippy vibe with psychedelic images of the band as they played. It was really cool. Boyd and the band really did the crowd justice with putting on a rock show like no other. It is a show you will not want to miss for one second. It rocks from front to back!!

Be sure to check them out on the rest of their tour.
