Reno Show Footage; "Mess of Me" no. 17 on Alt Nation; revamped support section

Switchfoot played their first show of 2010 last night in Reno. Here is footage of what happened:

Your Love Is a Song

The Sound


Sing It Out

^Jon sounded a bit sickly in this performance. Hopefully he gets better soon!


Here's a video recap from Thursday's 987 Chat:



The Mail Tribune did a quick story on Switchfoot's "Hello Hurricane." Here's a clip:

"When we had success with 'Beautiful Letdown,' it felt like we were thrust into waters we never dreamed we'd be in and we had to learn how to swim," Foreman says.

Also, Jon Foreman talks about his New Year's Resolution and other things with The Toronto Sun. Here's an excerpt:

Actually, I made two resolutions that have to do with my mouth,” admits the 33-year-old singer-guitarist in his first interview of 2010.

“The first is just making sure that I keep it in check. The more you open your mouth, the more liable you are to do some damage. Or maybe that’s just me ... And the other one is that I’m going to try to be more concerned with folks around me, rather just my own little world.”

As soon as the words leave his mouth, you can almost see the bulb light up above his head.

“That’s kind of ironic to say during an interview about myself, isn’t it?” he chuckles. “I’m already failing on both counts. I should just get off the line now.”
