Switchfoot playing Culture Room September 10

The name Switchfoot sounds like the moniker for an awful pop punk band trying to capitalize on skateboarding culture. Instead, Switchfoot is an alternative/grunge band from San Diego whose name is capitalizing on surfing culture. They're touring in support of their upcoming "Hello Hurricane" album, set to release on October 6th. If you haven't heard Switchfoot, feel free to hit the jump for a sample, or just turn on any rock station. That band you hear? They sound just like Switchfoot. Or The Goo Goo Dolls. Or Nickleback. If you're into that type of thing, Tickets go on sale tomorrow through Ticketmaster. If you're not sure, hit the jump.
