houston, texas.



today started out very very early. like, 'waking up when it's dark' early. it was for a good reason though. some of the sf and rk guys went over to a habitat for humanity build this morning and worked for a few hours. watching jerome wield a nail gun is a beautiful thing, let me tell you.

back to the venue, and all of us who woke up early take naps. they were well earned and well needed, because tonight's show is the biggest of the tour. it's gonna be nuts.

(the show happens. minds are blown.)

tonight was in the top 5 switchfoot shows i've ever seen. (and at this point, i've seen a few hundred). the crowd was 7000+ people, and they all were pretty much flipping out the entire time.

at the meet and greet, the guys were given a plaque which commemorates that an astronaut took a copy of 'oh! gravity' on board the international space station and the thing had a photo of the cd floating in midair. pretty dang awesome.

gravity in space? ridiculous.

    Eeep, definitely an amazing show! I was so sad that I had to leave early, before searching around for the guys after the show... *cough*... but I'm so glad I went!

    And I think I can see myself in that last picture. Eheheh. :P

    yeah!!! awesome show last night!!! i still cant stop thinking about it. and afterwards i waited with my friends in the cold to meet the guys and it was so totally worth it!!!! we made matching shirts! :)

    yeah, my friend went to that show. it was her first SF concerto, so before she went, i told her to get ready to be rocked cuz fans and critics alike agree that The Foot is one of the best live acts around. so after, she told me how awesome it was. i could tell that her mind had been blown. she said "yeah, and he [Jono] even went in the audience!" i told her he does that every show. i asked, "they were all pretty sweaty, huh?" and she said "they were! how'd you know?" but of course, we all know.

    This show was AMAZING. And not just because when Jon came into the audience it was right behind me. It was just a truly amazing show, just full of energy the whole time. If going to SF concerts is like therapy for me (and it so is), then this stands as pretty much the best therapy session EVER. God is absolutely working through these guys, and He's doing it by making them awesome.

    I was at the show last night (with Victoria right up there in the comments), and the guys were AMAZING! I honestly cannot put into words how much their music means to me, and what it has gotten me through in my life. I hope someday I can meet them and try to express it in person. I just feel like Jon really needs to know how he touches people with his words, and what an amazing instrument of God's he truly is.

    Also, thank Jon for picking our section to climb into. He was right behind our seats, two feet away, singing to us, and it was completely awesome. :)

    This was my second Switchfoot show (all this year, even), and I had the most wonderful time. I always do, and I am going to catch a Texas date every time they come here from now on. I can't describe how much it means to be there and sing their words back to them. Thanks to the guys for being so fantastic and giving us their all, and we definitely try to give it back. As long as they keep coming to Texas, a bunch of fans that love them are going to keep showing up.

    That show was awesome. I had never been to one that big before and even tho I was towards the back it was still amazing. Was there a meet and greet? I waited for a while outside and met Shneck but then we had to go. Driving 12 hours was definatly worth it. The show rocked.


    Job says

    a pic of that space plaque would be amazing!!!


    Paige says

    THAT WAS AN AWESOME SHOW! I don't think I've ever been to such an incredible show. I give a million thanks to switchfoot for making it so amazing. Being there singing the songs with everyone gives you the best feeling. I can't wait to for them to come back so I can go see them again!

    Christine says

    such an amazing show! Jon came right to where I was with the rope lights - it was pretty awesome. Ahh, there was a meet and greet?? I wish I had known about it... but my friends and I stayed after for a bit and met Jon Schneck but then we had to leave... maybe next time I'll get to stay later. I'd reeeeeally like to see an aftershow one day.
    Anyway, great show =)

    Such an amazing show. I was really bummed that I missed ya'll during the Oh! Gravity tour but it was all made up for here. I had also once missed out on a Relient K concert, so I was really excited when I heard about this tour. Next time come to Austin so I don't have to drive so far.
