Alt-rockers 311 brought the eighteenth annual Unity Tour to House of Blues Myrtle Beach, with the same energy as the inaugural summer run nearly two decades ago.

In fact, it may have been difficult for die-hard fans to discern which version of the band was present – save for the band playing songs from across its 12-album catalog. The band delivered a 24-song set that included hits, fan favorites, tracks from the new album Mosaic, and a raging bass solo that erupted into thunderous applause.

311’s eclectic musical journey took flight following openers New Politics. With the restless crowd chanting, “311, 3-3-11,” between bands, the Nebraska-based musicians responded with Mosaic’s hard hitting “Perfect Mistake,” out of the gate.

From there, 311 – comprised of vocalist/guitarist Nick Hexum, vocalist/DJ SA Martinez, lead guitarist Tim Mahoney, bassist P-Nut and Chad Sexton on the kit – took the eager crowd through a nearly 25-year musical journey. 311’s lively brand of rock, funk, hip-hop and reggae was delivered through “Homebrew,” “Omaha Stylee” (Grassroots, 1994); “Come Original” (Soundsystem, 1999); “Amber” (From Chaos, 2001); “Creatures” (Evolver, 2003), “‘Til the City’s on Fire,” “Wildfire” (Mosaic 2017); and others. 

After years of consistent touring - 24 out of the last 25 years - 311 upheld their reputation Saturday night as one of the most entertaining and dynamic live bands in the U.S. 311 continues its summer run through early September; for additional tour dates, visit 311’s website here.
