7:30 p.m. Magic Springs' Timberwood Amphitheater. $30-$65.

San Diego Christian rock band Switchfoot has evolved over the years, from the scrappy, sincere post grunge of their early albums to the big statement grandiosity of their 2004 breakthrough "The Beautiful Letdown" and its follow-up, "Nothing is Sound," to The Weezer-y "Oh! Gravity," which found the band cranking the "quirk" dial to 11, with lots more bleeps and bloops and keyboard squiggles and reverbed everything.

That well-received album was their last for Columbia Records. The group formed lowercase people records and released an EP and two more albums, the latest of which, "Vice Verses," finds the band playing a much louder, crunchier brand of earnest rock.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
