Without summertime, the pop charts would be cluttered with anthems about girls shoveling in snowpants, and The Beach Boys would be known as The Fireside Hobos. Celebrate the warmest season with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $15, you get one ticket in sections 200–205 (rows AAA–JJJ) to see the Unity Tour 2011 with 311 and Sublime with Rome at the Gexa Energy Pavilion on Saturday, August 13, at 6:30 p.m. (a $36 value without fees, or up to a $47.37 value online, including all ticketing fees). Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
311 and Sublime with Rome bring their blends of chugging rock and sauntering reggae outside, coating the coasts in good vibes on their summer Unity Tour 2011. Known for hits such as “Down” and “Don’t Tread on Me,” 311 inspires legions of fans to bob their heads, nod their feet, and jam city switchboards with reports of dance-induced potholes. Touring behind its latest album, Universal Pulse, 311 provide a rhythm-heavy soundtrack for the summer. Tag-teaming the stage, Sublime with Rome shoots hits from Sublime’s supernal cannon up into the grateful skies, as new frontman Rome Ramirez upholds the seminal band’s legacy with tantamount vocals and a swagger found only in John Wayne’s rasta period.
