The Jim Ivins Band @ Webster

I got to the Studio @ Webster Hall early on Friday to catch The Jim Ivins Band open for Rooney’s Robert Schwartzman.

The band started strong with “Run” — very catchy chorus. Most of their songs sound like late 90s/early 2000s power pop.

The sound was good and full, but 5 people made the stage too crowded. I think they would’ve been tighter with 3 or 4 band members, ditching the extraneous Korg keyboard.

I’d be interested in hearing some of these songs stripped down/acoustic.

“Rollercoaster” was a highlight, and they ended their set with “Everything We Wanted.”
