They’re like the O’Douls of reggae, rap and hard rock: a safer, less buzz-inducing alternative to the real thing.
That’s not a knock on radio-friendly hybridists 311, who are a gateway act of sorts. Sure, their catalog may be a little watered down, but it’s still plenty intoxicating for mainstream tastes.
Drink ’em in at 8 p.m. Saturday at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel, 4455 Paradise Road. Tickets are $39.50-$43; call 693-5583.
