singapore.



no, that's not a typo. it really is just singapore. that's how they roll here (it's a city-state, i wikipedia'd it). no messing around. if you spit on the ground here, you can get arrested. for reals.

the day started with press, press, and more press. the cool thing though was that they had this press conference at a high school. i know, random, but they had this promotion thing where schools could enter a contest proving they loved switchfoot, and i guess this school won because they earned a lunchtime concert from jon. a couple local bands opened. it was good times. we then went to lunch where some people ate chickens feet, and some people imitated the photos on the wall. both were entertaining.

it was then back to the venue and soundcheck. romey was excited about it. we started calling him 'kimosabe' because of his sweet new shirt he got from this store called 'revoltage'. they made a pretty rad limited edition shirt for the show too with all these guitar pedals on it. legit.

after soundcheck, the guys did one more press thing for mtv asia where they actually had drew interview the rest of the band. he had the real mtv news mic and everything. i think he'd be a good veejay. i think they still have those...right?

the guys played a killer show tonight. its pretty amazing seeing a ton of people who live halfway across the world singing the same words in a another language. i don't think i'll forget it anytime soon. after the show, jon laid down a demo for a new song. not sure if it has a title yet, but it ruled. like a ruler.

    missed switchfoot's manila concert so I flew to Singapore to catch them. It was one of the best concerts I've seen...there was so much heart put into the songs and the show...On Fire was a defining moment. It was well worth the trip. Keep the music playing!
