Switchfoot: USA (Austin), April 2, 2004
The sound was awesome. They remade a lot of their old songs to sound more like rock and it really worked for them.

Sound: The sound was so awesome. They remade alot of their old songs to sound more like rock and it really worked for them. He singer would scream into his pick ups making this crazy feedback. The singer mostly used a Richenbacher, and the other two guitarists a used les paul goldtop and custom les paul. The singer has a really unique voice and is on key the whole time. // 10

Perfomance: I can't remember all the songs they played but I'm pretty sure they covered almost every song on the new album plus a couple of old songs. They even took requests, which I thought was very cool. "Meant to live" was the last song the band played and everybody was going crazy. During the breakdown of the song the singer climbed on a stack speakers and was singing from up there. The encore song was "gone". // 10

Overall Impression: USA, Austin, Student Union Ballroom, April 2, 2004. The tickets were only $15. I would've paid $45 to see this band. The openers were a band called Copeland, and they were ok. The band had alot of energy and were really excited the whole time. I just wish they had a little more interaction with the crowd. I would definitely go watch this band again. // 10
