Jimmy Eat World is coming to the Pageant! The Mesa, Arizona rock band will perform on Thursday, August 1, and we have two tickets up for grabs.

To win, simply tell us why you deserve to go. Be creative! You may enter in the comments below -- make sure you include some way of contacting you, as well as your full name so you can pick up your tickets. We will announce the winner on Thursday at 4 p.m.

Here is what RFT Music writer Jaime Lees had to say about the show in one of this week's Critc's Picks:

Best known for its catchy 2001 power-pop anthem, "The Middle," Jimmy Eat World is a band that has always walked right on the line of major mainstream success. Though a solid favorite among many in the Millennial generation, the band has never been as popular as its tourmates like Weezer and Green Day, and even "The Middle" was a surprise hit single. To the casual listener, Jimmy Eat World might seem like a one hit wonder, but this is a band that many not-so-youngsters freak out over.

Check out "I Will Steal You Back," from the band's latest, Damage, below.
