Today is 3/11/12.  Today is a day to get down to the funky grooves and dope beats of 311.  Tonight is the second concert in Las Vegas to celebrate 311 on 3/11.  I’ve been a fan of the band since 1995 when I was introduced to their killer style through a crazy little aggressive inline skating video called Hoax II.  It featured 5 skaters in a Winnebago going cross country to skate with all the best at the time and it included three 311 songs.  That is how it began.

Now, after seeing over a 100 live shows in a dozen states, I’m attending my fifth 3/11 Day concert (they occur biennially) and I’m thrilled.  Here are some more live show photos from back in the late 90s.  Happy 3/11 Day and stay positive and love life!

Dreary Moon by Big Black Delta - I describe it as one of the most hauntingly beautiful and perfectly melancholy songs I’ve ever heard.

I’m in Vegas for the two-night-in-a-row 3-11 Day concerts and I’m super pumped.  My brother and other friends flew in from Indiana and my buddy and his girlfriend came with from L.A.  

I decided to dust off some old photos from WAY back in the day (late 90s) when I used to get photo passes for the shows…  here are some of my fav black & white shots of the guys!
