    Look at our little intern! She can write! Check the first part of her day with Switchfoot and MuteMath:

     

    So far the best day of my internship (by far) was last week Thursday. It started out with me walking into a room full of people and remembering that Switchfoot was doing an acoustic set in the station. Score! Minus all of the people, there were more of them than I had expected. Span immediately threw me into the center of attention and told those in attendance that I would be coming around and introducing myself. There was no warning in this, so of course I had to play along and pretend I knew what I was doing. I didn’t, hopefully that fact wasn’t too obvious...

    The acoustic set was amazing though! I guess part of me was expecting it to not be as amazing as it could be. I mean there were only about forty people, so it seemed as though there was a need for the band to do their best, but you could really tell that they were into the music. With the intimate setting you could feel the emotion, making it that that much more special and something I’ll never forget.

    Following the show Span interviewed Jon Foreman and Drew Shirley. I was excited because I got to sit in on the interview. Then whilst they were answering a question Span turned to me and told me to think of a question. Wait. What? I’m thinking to myself, “Oh THANKS for the warning here,” and praying that I could think of a decent question. Magically I thought of something!

    I addressed my question to Jon and asked him how he liked touring solo versus with a full band. Yay! Decent question! He talked about it for a bit and used the analogy that it’s like comparing football and baseball, you love them both but they’re entirely different, which is so true. Sometimes I’ll show my friends Jon Foreman solo (you can check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7M-_sZIh2cQ ) and they won’t believe that he’s the lead singer of Switchfoot! But it’s still soooooooo good!

    Jon even said I asked a good question! I got to talk with him for a little bit following that, and I found out that he likes Shara Worden of My Brightest Diamond! (check her out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aB-FLxglSOA ) That made me so happy! And that wasn’t even the end of my day…
