Jimmy Eat World was emo before there was a name for it. The Arizona group's first two albums — 1996's Static Prevails and 1999's Clarity — were recently reissued in special expanded editions with bonus tracks. Even back in the day, the band mixed pop-punk guitars with heart-on-your-sleeve rumination. Its new CD, Chase This Light, expands on the sound while doubling back on it — making the record a perfect reference and starting point. Best of all, Jimmy Eat World cracks a smile or two this time around. Its last album, 2004's Futures, was a distressed and depressing slab of grown-up worries. The sunshine peeks through on Chase This Light, and the problems — thankfully — mostly have to do with how mean girls can be. Jimmy Eat World plays House of Blues (308 Euclid Avenue) at 7 tonight. Tickets are $25. Call 216-523-2583 or visit www.hob.com for more information.
