Del Mar Fair and BRO-AM 2009

We are playing a very special hometown show on Friday June 26th at the
Del Mar Fair in Del Mar, California. Click here for show and ticket info:

And, the 5th Annual Switchfoot Bro-Am has been set for Saturday June
27th, 2009. This is a FREE beach event open to the public with a surf
contest, concert, and vendors. The Bro-Am was created to give back to
the San Diego community while also benefiting a local children's charity
through funds raised at an auction night event, as well as from vendors
on the beach day-of, sponsorships, and an after-party at the Belly Up

We are delighted to announce that this year's event will again benefit
the San Diego and Oceanside branches of StandUp For Kids, a national
nonprofit volunteer outreach organization that started right here in San
Diego and is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of at-risk,
homeless, and street kids. (

Stay tuned for more info on this exciting event.

Also, we are playing 2 shows with Dave Matthews Band on September 12 in
Chula Vista, CA and September 13 in Irvine, CA. Both of these are ON
SALE now. Complete show and ticketing info is listed here

As always, thanks for listening!

- Tim, Chad, Jon, Jerome and Drew
