Down since 1993

Post by Mindspin » Fri Jul 03, 2009 7:44 pm

Hi Everybody. I'm Old School. I've been a 311 fan since late 1993 when I first heard Music in the right frame of mind ("travellin' head spinnin' from the medicine"). I'm happy to see that 311 is attracting new younger fans, but I'm a bit sad that a lot of the other old school fans must have moved on to other things. I'm not seeing a whole lot of other 30-somethings at the shows anymore. So I thought I should get online and check out the internet fan community (which I assume has young and old fans both).

I got married last year and our first child (a boy) is due to arrive in August. I'm hoping 311 is still touring in 7-8 years when my kids are old enought to go to an outdoor show because I'd like to share a little of my experience with them. I've seen the band in concert 19 times since 1995. Next year will be show #20, and I really want to make it special somehow.

I thought about maybe going to 311 Day 2010 (I've only been to 2004 so far). A long show like that would have a better chance of playing most of my favorites (I've still never heard "Mindspin" or Livin' & Rockin'" live.).

If not 311 Day, then I also thought about going to see them in Omaha, or in Memphis (I went there on my honeymoon and loved it so much I want to go back). I hate flying, and Omaha or Memphis would both be day trips for me (but will include a hotel stay).

And then I remembered that 6-10-2010 will be the band's 20th anniversary, so they will undoubtedly have a special show like they did for their 10th in 2000. That might be the most appropriate show for me: 20 shows in 15 years on 311's 20 year anniversary. But who knows where they will be? We probably won't know until next Spring.

I think you should let your child decide what music he/she wants to listen to.

Thanks! It's an ultrasound image of my unborn son. It's partially seeing through to his skull. Freaky indeed.

What's up Mindspin?!?!?! I promise you are not the only 30 something fan! I share your thoughts. Been a huge fan since late 1994 or early 1995 and have hit over 30 shows myself. I will admit that I am starting to get a bit tired of the 311 concert experience, but I still find myself travelling all over the country to see them live. As I have been telling people for years.....311 is more than just a band. I have met COUNTLESS people with the same mental attitude that I have (love, respect, unity....).

I will be attending 311 Day 2010 with several other 30 something fans (with the exception of my wife...she is a young buck). 2008 was fucking off the hook! New Orleans is such a wonderful city.

Welcome to this crazy azzzzzz board. :)

How can you be thirty-something and still listen to and enjoy 311?
