Jimmy Eat World will come anyway!

Even though Blink are far too lazy to come to Europe, emo stars Jimmy Eat World have announced some shows instead. They are as follows:

16/1 – Dublin, Ireland – Temple Music Bar Center

17/1 – Glasgow, Scotland – QMU

18/1 – Liverpool, England – Liverpool University – Stanley Theater
24/1 – Norwich, England – The Waterfront

In a statement on their website, they even added: “Jimmy Eat World is very sorry that they can’t cover all the areas affected by the cancellation but hope that many of you will be able to join them on those dates above.”

You’re forgiven lads, at least you can be bothered to come…

Paul, otherwise known as Sav, is quite possibly the only member of the Punktastic team to actually have a proper job. But don't hold that against him. He's actually a proper journalist, (a reporter for a daily northern paper) and so adds a bit of credence to the team. Except you wouldn't think that by reading his reviews. Maybe somebody should tell him that it is quality and not quantity that counts! Sav actually ended up working for Punktastic after meeting Nick at university, and the pair bonded over all things punk rock. Another guitarist, he also "writes a lot of songs about relationships, and how mine went wrong." Oh, and he loves the Ataris, if you hadn't already noticed. In his spare time he worships at the church of Kris Roe... Other fave bands include: MxPx, New Found Glory, Blink 182, Weezer, Midtown, Reel Big Fish, The Get Up Kids, Alkaline Trio, NOFX, Green Day, Deftones, Lit and Silverchair to name but a few. Hobbies include, sleeping, drinking, eating fish and supporting Grimsby Town FC. But hey, somebody has to.
