A Great Celebration – 311 with Iration and Iya Terra at Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island (September 10, 2021)

311 was formed in Omaha, Nebraska by singer/guitarist Nick Hexum, singer S.A. Martinez, guitarist Tim Mahoney, drummer Chad Sexton and bassist P-Nut. The band now resides in Los Angeles, California.

311 mix rock, reggae, hip-hop and funk into their own unique sound. After years of consistent touring, 311 have developed a reputation as one of the most entertaining & dynamic live bands in the U.S.

In 2017, they released their 12th studio album MOSAIC (BMG) with its unique album cover–which is made up of nearly 10,000 photos submitted by fans.  Even the image of the 5 band members on the cover is made up of tiny fan photos–to solidify the concept of band and fans as one. Fans can view a high-resolution pan & zoom mosaic of the cover image now at 311AlbumArt.com.

“This cover captures the spirit of the collective nature that is 311–band and fans together to form something greater than the sum of its parts.” says Nick Hexum (singer/guitarist). Chad Sexton (drums) adds, “We have a very symbiotic relationship with our fans that see us on tour year after year.  We wanted to have an album title that would describe our fan base, our band & our music. And to tie all of this into a concept that could be presented in the album artwork as well.”

Here is the setlist for the show along with the Spotify tracks:

In 2019, they released their latest album, Voyager. They played “What The?” from this album. “Smokin’ that good weed. Getting high, we are stoners” they sing. This is a big moment as this is their first show in Chicago since cannabis was legalized on January 1, 2020. It’s great to finally celebrate this achievement along with celebrating the return of live music after the long pandemic shutdown.
