About 650 people experienced a full blown rock show from Switchfoot at the Mercury Lounge in Melbourne this week. The band proved it was a legitimate mainstream rock act commanding strong audience participation throughout the set.
The show was a mix of old songs like ?New Way to Be Human?, current hit ?This Is Your Lif?e plus a couple of new songs including ?Happy is a Yuppie Word?. The crowd erupted when they sang ?Meant To Live?.
It is always difficult for Christian acts to crossover to the mainstream. But Switchfoot seems to have what it takes to communicate to a broad audience, and satisfy an often too critical Christian fan base that’s quick to criticise. Switchfoot is an act holding true to its ideals and aims. I look forward to seeing them again next year for a more extensive Australian tour.
