Electric. Excitable. Unity. Family. Epic.
These are just a few words 311 fans use to describe the multi-award-winning group in concert. On Sunday, the Bay Area will be treated to the band's latest installment of their Summer Unity Tour as it stops at The Masonic in San Francisco.
Formed in 1990, 311 fuses rock, rap, reggae and funk into a sound that's all their own. After over 25 years of performing all across the world, the group has enjoyed a reputation as one of the most 'entertaining and dynamic' live bands in the United States.
311's annual headlining summer showcase, which is currently in the middle of its 14th year, has proven to be more than just a concert for the band and its loyal fans. Priding themselves on unifying people in the name of music, for 311 and their supporters, it's a way of life.
Regardless it it's your 100th time seeing 311 live or your first, it's always a unique show, as the band never plays the same set list. With 11 studio albums and countless hits, there's no shortage of songs for the band to choose from. Each experience is catered to the location, venue and fans that will attend that particular show..
There's only a few things you can predict about a 311 show: P-Nut will probably take several minutes to jam on his bass mid-set, the band is likely to perform their signature drum line, but most importantly, the fans will always have a good time.
Despite it being among the final stops on the 2016 tour, you would think it was one of their first based on the energy they always bring to the stage. Recording their 12th album that's set to release in early 2017 and planning their biennial cruise for March, don't expect 311 to slow down anytime soon.
