Friday To-Do: Switchfoot

SWITCHFOOT
6:30 p.m., Riverfest Amphitheatre, $10-$20.

The first concert in the Music in the Park's Summer Series features a four-act lineup geared to the faithful. But though Switchfoot is often referred to as a Christian act, mostly due to its debut album's distribution by a Christian label, the band shuns the label. Switchfoot — named after a surfing maneuver — has sold multi-platinum albums since forming in San Diego in 1996 and produced a string of radio hits, including “Dare to Move” and “One Girl Revolution.” Switchfoot's sound has evolved from the predominantly lo-fi, indie rock of early albums to more layered, synth-influenced material that's helped launch it into mainstream popularity. Steering clear of preachiness, Switchfoot lyrics instead question the status quo, probe existential issues and appraise the human condition. Sharing the bill are Christian contemporary rockers and 2009 Grammy nominees Superchick, as well as local performers Kingsdown and Tyler Bass.
