Switchfoot rocked St. Louis last night. Here is just a glimpse:

"Always"



"Dare You to Move"



^Gotta love the fact that Jon Foreman weaves in "Needle and Haystack Life" throughout the set. I think that song is extra special to the guys... which gives high hopes it could be a single. ;)

Here's a photo:



^View the rest of the set here.

Here's another set by Todd Owyoung, who photographed the show. Here's a blurb that he posted on his site:

Returning to the road after a three-year absence, alt-rockers Switchfoot stormed the Pageant to deliver a passionate performance to a crowd of a thousand strong. Many of the fans rocking the barricade had braved freezing weather for their prime real estate – for this music photographer, any band with such dedicated fans is one worth photographing.

On top of that, any show that starts with the lead singer planted in the audience and giving the people some love is a great bonus.





Awesome. Well, the Switchfoot guys will be in Chicago tonight, so if anyone's going (Chicago team, lookin' at ya!), be sure to let us know how it goes!
