Just watched a re-run of the show, and "Mess of Me" came in at No. 2 again! So close! Let's push it to No. 1 for next week. This is very important for Switchfoot and will get them even more exposure.
So without further ado, VOTE FOR IT NOW!
Tucson Show with 30 Seconds to Mars and Muse

Review of Tulsa Show at Cain's
Tulsa Today posted a review of the recent Switchfoot show at Cain's. It's glowing, as usual. Excerpt:
San Diego based alternative rock band Switchfoot hit the Cain’s Ballroom like a hurricane Monday night. They even brought a little San Diego with them in the form of seagulls hanging over the stage. As the house lights dimmed and the sea of humanity began to roar (with waves of flannel and Toms of every color), lead singer Jon Foreman stealthily made his way from the right side of the building, through the crowd and on to the stage while singing “Needle and Haystack Life”. Maybe the most incredible way to start a show I have ever seen.
