Switchfoot and Blue October are taking their Help From My Friends Summer Tour to NYC. With special guest Matt Nathanson, they will be making their way to The Rooftop at Pier 17 on Tuesday July 30th, and we have a pair of tickets for you!


The first headliner for this tour, Switchfoot, is recognized for their dynamic live performances, thoughtful lyrics, and enduring influence in the alternative rock genre.The band gained mainstream recognition with their fourth album, "The Beautiful Letdown" (2003), which included hits like "Meant to Live" and "Dare You to Move." Their music often features introspective lyrics that touch on themes such as faith, doubt, and the human condition. Switchfoot's sound blends elements of alternative rock, post-grunge, and indie rock.

The second headliner, Blue October, has built a reputation for their intense and emotionally charged live performances. Justin Furstenfeld's stage presence is often described as captivating, as he pours his heart and soul into each performance, connecting deeply with the audience.

Their music often delves into themes of personal struggle, mental health, and relationships, with emotionally raw lyrics and intense musical arrangements. Blue October gained significant commercial success with their platinum-selling album "Foiled" (2006), which featured the hit single "Hate Me." This album marked a turning point in their career and brought them mainstream recognition.

In addition to their studio albums, Blue October is known for their energetic live performances and dedicated fanbase. They continue to tour extensively, both nationally and internationally, and remain active in the alternative rock scene.
