Switchfoot Thrill Their Hometown Christmas Crowd With Wrex The Halls Performance

Switchfoot brought the most energetic and euphoric performance of the night at 91x’s Wrex The Halls at Viejas Arena in San Diego.  This was a hometown Christmas crowd for the SD natives.  Jon Foreman and company brought an energy that was intimate, yet out of control.  The entire band was spinning and careening across the stage, all night.  The pinnacle of the set was during “Dare You To Move,” when Foreman went sprinting across the venue and ended up five rows up, into the crowd.  Viejas was going nuts and singing along at the top of their lungs.

The show marked a year on the road, supporting their amazing album, Hello Hurricane.  They are headed to the studio to record a new album, tenatively titled Vice Verses.

Other highlights of the set were, “This Is Your Life,” “Mess Of Me,” and the raging “The Sound (John M Perkins Blues).”  Switchfoot were home.

    Hmm That’s going to be a bit of a toughy to pick just six songs for a treavl playlist I think I will just pick six songs that I have been listening to on heavy rotation while I’ve been on the road.1. Love You More + Blue Mind by Alexi Murdoch(You have to listen to these two songs back to back because they go well together; plus, Love You More’s outro goes into Blue mind. )2. Blue Paper by Moby(It has that nice laid back ambient sound. Sounds very pleasing to the ears.)3. The Cave or Winter Winds or Dust Bowl Dance by Mumford & Sons(Shoot Any song by Mumford & Sons would be great for treavling, but these three songs are especially great and have been in my head for a good few days.)4. I Still Remember by Bloc Party(Bloc Party Oh, How I love thee?)5. The Postman and/or Gone To Earth by The American Analog Set(I just got into these guys. They are simply wonderful. They remind me of Death Cab for Cutie except more slowcore kind of stuff)6. Robin Hood Theory and/or Moment of Truth by Gang Starr(Lately, I’ve been in a rap mood Maybe it’s because Kanye’s new album came out Oh well, anyways. Gang Starr is my all time favorite rap group; so, naturally, I would come back to them when I am in a hip hop mood)Bonus songs, i.e. if you are the passenger and you are going in and out of sleep 1. Over the River by Jon Foreman(Duh.)2. We Ride by Fiction Family(Major duh.)3. Isabel by Frank Turner(Triple du Wait a minute Oh Frank Turner is a wonderful artist that brings wonderful lyrics into anyone’s mind.)
