Jimmy Eat World got their start in 1994 and has gained a reputation for being a band of great perseverance and hard work. Since the 1999 release of their breakthrough debut album Clarity, they’ve sold millions of records, have had numerous top ten singles at Modern Rock Radio, appeared on Saturday Night Live and have toured with Foo Fighters, Green Day and Weezer. Jimmy Eat World’s eighth and latest studio album, Damage, is set to be released in June.
Knoxville, Tennessee trio Royal Bangs peddle in the sort of noise pop that’s insidiously catchy enough to get you whistling in inappropriate situations while also being rough around the edges enough to attract the interest of The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney, who released their 2008 debut We Breed Champions on his label. Since their nascent days as a high school rock trio, the band has released three full length records (including 2011’s Flux Outside), rehearsed in a converted methadone clinic, made their national television debut and knocked about the festival circuit. Royal Bangs are now working on album number four and looking forward to, once again, testing their mettle (and perhaps some new material) on the road.
Directions to Central Park
Know Before You Go
There are currently 2 service interruptions affecting access within this park.
As of April 27, Central Park's Bow Bridge is closed to the public for structural work and a fresh coat of paint. The work is expected to last three to four months. Removing the old paint will require wrapping the bridge in a tent-like structure to prevent debris from falling into the water. Along with repainting, the work will include replacing the wooden decking, fixing several beams on the underside of the span, and reinforcing approaches at either end.
Anticipated Completion: Summer 2015
Starting June 29, 2015, Central Park Drives north of 72nd Street will be permanently car-free. For more information, please visit on.nyc.gov/1MOAh40.
