“Rainstorm, take me away from the norm…” 311 is bringing their unique brand of alternative reggae/rock to the House of Blues Sunday March 20th and you better go catch them (GET TICKETS HERE)! New and old fans alike are invited as 311 celebrates the beginning of spring with all of us!
Formed in 1988 out of Omaha, Nebraska, 311 has been doing the rock band thing in 4 different decades! That’s incredibly impressive, especially considering they’ve had pretty much the same lineup for the last 30 years. Boasting 13 studio albums to their credit, along with a host of EP’s live albums, and 2 compilation albums (one of which is rated platinum), their discography is impressive. They make full use of this depth with constantly rotating live setlists. I’ve probably seen them about 8 times live, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen the same set twice. This is awesome, as I connect with my friends who like 311 all over the country, and we compare notes about the different songs we’ve had the chance to see at different spots.
The big draw to 311 is their different kind of sound that they have cultivated. Throughout the years, they’ve stayed pretty true to their sound while refining it, incorporating hip hop, funk, reggae, rock and alternative to truly create a sound that is wholly their own. Of course, they have their big hits, like “Amber,” “Champagne,” and “Down.” I have my personal favorites, with the opening and continuing riff of “Beautiful Disaster” immediately coming to mind.
As well as their absolutely beautiful cover of The Cure’s “Lovesong:”
But nothing is as fun as the rapping breakdowns of “Come Original:”
This is a great chance to start off your spring in the best way! Of my 8ish times seeing 311, most of them have been at the House of Blues, and that seems like their home away from home. They’re always comfortable and put on one of the most energetic live shows, with sets lasting almost 2 ½ hours sometimes! Give yourself a treat and get out to the HOB March 20th! Make “Amber” the colour of your energy <3
