columbus, ohio.



so i remember on mtv awhile back, there used to be this show where bands would go and surprise a group of people and play an impromptu show somewhere like a mall or a skatepark or something. well, switchfoot kind of did that today at a highschool somewhere in the greater columbus area. they set it up that a guy was supposed to come out and pretend to forget how to play guitar, and then switchfoot would come and save the day. the kids flipped out, it was pretty awesome.

back at the venue, 'rebuild' was getting worked on during soundcheck. this is basically turning into a band free-for-all on stage, and i love it. the song is great, and it's just super fun to see everyone up there having fun. especially because matt from rk has an amazing mustache. the song should be good tonight.

after some dinner and a few rounds of darts on sidestage, showtime.

now, i'm not saying this because i'm biased, but the guys' shows are seriously ruling it on this tour. they've stepped it up big time. i think my favorite moment of the night is the new mashup they're playing. i don't want to give it away, but needless to say, it is pretty amazing. oh, and rebuild did rule.

cheers.

    Switchfoot is the coolest band ever! We're so smart to have picked them to be "groupies" over! The whole show was the best concert I have ever been to EVER!

    That picture of Jon singing into the crowd is amazing! It looks like he's cut out or something. Great job as always Andy!
