This isn’t the first time we’ve featured Switchfoot on A Trolley Show, but they were kind enough to provide us with two performances that showcase their status as one of San Diego’s most expansive and cathartic exports.

In this episode of A Trolley Show, the San Diego Symphony performs Bach for the lucky commuters. As much as we like the rock musicians who usually perform, we couldn’t be more excited to switch things up with a symphony.
This isn’t the first time we’ve featured Crystal Fighters on A Trolley Show, but they’re such a fun, poppy band, and so appropriate for the sudden uptick in temperature, that we felt they deserved an encore performance.
