- "Please keep all hands inside until the ride comes to a full and complete stop." thanks Santa clara for a fun rock & rollercoastour! -d

and our friend Luthien posted this setlist:

Meant To Live Intro
Oh! Gravity.
Crazy Right Now/Gone Remix
This Is Your Life
This Is Home
We Are One Tonight
American Dream
Learning to Breathe
On Fire
Meant to Live
Dare You To Move
Hello Hurricane (on speakers, this was not a live song)

We also hear from Luthien that "Hello Hurricane" is shaping up to be a good, mid-tempo song. I guess we can't describe it until we actually hear it. haha.


Here are some videos from the show gathered from across the interweb.

Oh! Gravity. (Santa Clara)

Stars (Santa Clara)

Gone (Santa Clara)


Now for some other news and bits and pieces.

Indie Vision Music reports that Switchfoot will be playing "Hello Hurricane" live on their upcoming shows. We certainly can't wait.


Here's a report on this year's Switchfoot Bro-Am, which we hear is once again going to be environmentally friendly. Awesome:

The Switchfoot Bro-Am will again work with San Diego-based Sustainable Waves to offer cutting-edge solar-powered sound and staging. Sustainable Waves utilizes the renewable energy sources of the sun to deliver 100% pollution-free concerts. By using solar power rather than a diesel generator or grid power, the Bro-Am will avoid emitting approximately 1,000 lbs of CO2 into the atmosphere (the equivalent of not driving your car approximately 1,100 miles or the annual sequestration of 66 trees).
