Switchfoot played their last show of the decade (WOW) this past weekend, a radio show in Riverside this past weekend. It was the XMAS 103.9 (KCXX) party. On a side note, KCXX spins "Mess of Me" quite often. Help support the single by requesting the song there: 909-890-1010

Anyways, back to the show. Our good friend and regular reader Doug sent us in a quick recap of the evening. Check it out!

Swithfoot was the first of 4 bands to come out and they rocked it out!

Im still in shock from hooking up with Drew after the Concert. Take a look out for his new Drewcast soon :) Jon also mentioned to the crowd that this was his first time playing in the town he was born in. everyone cheered This was a short set but it was the best set list for a short and the crowd was really into it...

Here are some videos from that show.

^They sure did rock it to end the year and the decade.

Here's to another great next 10 years, and a HUGE year for Switchfoot and "Hello Hurricane" in 2010!

-----

Speaking of decades and such, our friend Jessica sent in an email about how "Meant to Live" is up for "The Best Countdown of the Decade" on The Edge 102.1, a Toronto-based, Canadian radio station. We can go here to vote for it! It's got some tough competition (lots of Linkin Park), but we can definitely do it, right guys??

-----

Also, Switchfoot tweeted that they'd be doing a couple TV spots this coming week!

- Doing a few morning tv things this week: fox 5 in SanDiego on Tuesday, and KTLA in LA on Wed. Check em!

^Interesting. Will have to stay tuned for those!

I really wish they would retire Oh Gravity off the set list.
