Switchfoot, the band of choice for people who wear jeans with flip-flops, will be playing a free show on July 25 at Stewart Park in Beaumont. The show is part of the city’s annual Summer Concert Series, which has hosted the likes of Smash Mouth, Pat Benatar and Rick Springfield.
The band, arguably one of the most successful Christian acts to break into the unforgiving mainstream, is known for their hits “Dare You To Move” and “Meant To Live,” two songs that dominated the Christian and alternative charts in the mid 2000′s. They just released their eighth studio album, Vice Verses, in September of last year.
Stewart Park is situated at the corner of 9th Street and Orange in the heart of beautiful downtown Beaumont and has been the epicenter of the festivities for the past six years. Here’s a horribly made flyer that details the rest of the events during the Summer Concert Series.
Other bands that are set to perform in Beaumont this summer include Starship with Mickey Thomas and The Basix on the Fourth of July, Kool and the Gang on July 11, Taylor Dayne on July 18, Night Ranger on August 1 and Rude Boy on August 8 (All of those shows are free too). Throughout the concert series, the city will hold their Market Night event, which will showcase dozens of local vendors and fundraisers for local teams and groups.
In the meantime, here’s one of Switchfoot’s songs you can hum to yourself while walking through a meadow or picketing an abortion clinic.
