Hey fans! In case you were too tired to stay awake for the broadcast, or if you feel asleep halfway through (guilty!) don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Two songs were aired, “Dark Horses” and “The Sound”, and according to a few LOBHers that were there, the guys also played “Restless”, “The War Inside” and “Where I Belong” after the cameras stopped rolling.
Our friend Wendi sent us video footage that she taped right at the show – so click the links or the embedded video to watch that!
GREAT performances right? They always nail it!
Here’s an article about their performance on The Examiner:
Jimmy Kimmel’s Outdoor Stage in Hollywood was packed with Switchfoot fans dying to hear the latest from the band. They gave a great performance, their third Jimmy Kimmel appearance. If you weren’t there, you really missed out, so please check out the video to the left which is their new single, “Dark Horses.”
For “The Sound”, lead singer Jon Foreman got in touch with the audience – literally – as he walked on the barrier rail. Here is a link to that video. http://youtu.be/mitvwG-sbAM
Many recall Switchfoot’s recent drop off their label’s list, as well as their triumphant bid to self-release albums. Their efforts landed them their first Grammy Award for Hello Hurricane and airplay on KROQ, both of which had previously eluded them. Is their label kicking themselves yet?
Their latest album, Vice Verses will be released in one week. On October 11 of this year, they will play the Wiltern in Los Angeles.
They are proud Southlanders who love their hometeam, The Padres. You can also catch them playing after a Padres game this year in San Diego.

P.S. Check out this hilarious photo that they guys posted from backstage – I like how Romey actually looks rather pleased with the turn of events:
