San Diego band performs 'When We Come Alive' on the MTS

It's been more than a decade since San Diego's Switchfoot released "Dare You to Move," an emotionally charged rocker that has undoubtedly been the soundtrack to countless wedding / graduation / baby slideshows. But time has treated these boys well, and in 2013, they released their ninth studio album, Fading West. 

In this episode of A Trolley Show, the local favorites packed the train for their performance of "When We Come Alive," an anthemic juggernaut that retains its power even when the band's unplugged. Even the most jaded music critic can't help but smile when the entire train joins in on the "Whoaa oah oh oah oh" part of the chorus.
