davis, california.

out on the lawn before the show tonight, a bocce ball tournament took place. there were four teams, relient k, switchfoot, ruth, and the crew. all teams did well, but relient k came out victorious. it was their bocce set, so i think they might have more practice than everyone else, but hey, they won fair and square.

jon also has been working on the artwork for all his solo stuff. i caught him writing some lyrics and whatnot today. good times. get yo art on.

now, to bring up a sad but true point, this tour is coming to a close, so this is when the end-of-tour pranks begin rearing their ugly, yet hilarious heads. being the classy people that they are, the tour crew decided to not only do a prank that is totally awesome, but enhances the show. relient k has a part in their set where they do a christmas song and have a big inflatable christmas scene on stage, so our lighting guy taylor had the genius idea to repel in from the ceiling as santa. it seriously was amazing.

after all the christmas craziness, switchfoot went on and had quite the spirited show. i think the fun of santa repelling during relient k's set spilled over into switchfoot's, and it led to yet another great night.

i don't know how it started, but after the show, a carrot fight erupted. chad and i started throwing carrots at each other and then everyone joined in. it was messy, it was orange, and it was awesome.

    Did Jon play any acoustic songs after the show? I thought about waiting, but it was pretty late and pretty cold out there... wish I could have witnessed the bocce ball action..sounds like fun!

    I was at the Davis show! Santa from the cieling was awesome! Everyone thought it was part of the show. I'm so glad you guys came up to Northern California, most bands don't make it up here often. You guys were great! Keep it up!

    Steven, I waited, and Jon didn't play an acoustic set unless he did it at the meet/greet and didn't tell anyone outside, but I don't think so. Jon, Tim and Drew did come out and greet people, sign autographs, etc. It was a bit of a wait and very cold.

    Santa was amazing. Both of them. ;)

    BTW, I saw the game. Thanks to you all for letting me tag along and watch the tournament. Hoopes and Warne are really good - they have to be hard to beat.

    The show was amazing. I keep listening to the bootlegs and smiling lots. :)

    To Switchfoot my FAVORITE BAND; We are doing this thing for this place called The Ark and The Ark is something to where if people do not have enough money to buy any food then they come to the Ark where they get free food. Our church supports this organization. We gave the building so the Ark could first form over 7 years ago.

    .So we are doing this funraiser for the Ark, so to get the point across we would like to know if you would like to donate a signed guitar for this really great event. If so, please send a response to lesliemaxwell@comcast.net.
