Upstate Concert Hall, Friday


In the realm of Christian rock, Switchfoot are something of a Judas. (Actually, it’s kind of too bad the name Judas Priest was already taken.) In the late ’90s, the band were first embraced by the contemporary Christian music industry, which they later claimed alienated them from half of their audience. So, over nine studio records, they’ve more or less sworn off their Christian-rock roots, moving more toward conventional alt-rock (is that an oxymoron?). Fading West is their new record, which was released with a DVD following the band, who evidently are avid surfers, on a quest to find the next big swell.
