Switchfoot Headlines Centennial Concert in Bardo Gym

Switchfoot, a 2011 Grammy Award winner for Best Rock or Rap Gospel Album, continued its month-old winter tour with a Thursday gig at Pennsylvania College of Technology. Marking the college’s yearlong centennial – and the recent release of its “Fading West” album – the quintet was joined by the Kopecky Family Band for a performance in the college’s Bardo Gymnasium. “It was a great way to celebrate the college’s centennial,” said Sara Hillis Ousby, associate director of student activities. “Concerts are one of the events I regularly hear from students that they wish we did regularly. Hopefully, this is the start of a new Penn College tradition.”
