I don't understand why no one likes them here... 311 is awesome. I wish I could say that I even had a chance to see the Used in concert but not a lot of bands come to the middle of agricultural greatness that is Texas A&M.
But it's okay... I just go to Houston for concerts but it sucks when you don't have a car at college.
Is that in Austin? My former director of bands (which I'm not in anymore) should be finishing out grad-school there. Yeah, I've had the chance to see 311 twice, I even had the tickets, but we couldn't get a ride.. Ah the pain! They are in the studio right now, new album should be out by August! Woo!
I love 311 but I've never gotten the chance to see them live which is something that I am continuously upset about.... but I'm on their e-mail list and I'm really looking forward to their next album... I liked From Chaos a lot and I've just really enjoyed their sound progression they've made over the years.
Texas A&M is in College Station which is about an hour and a half from Austin.
I agree, I now own every 311 cd ever.. The only other bands that I have done that with has been Sublime, and Nirvana.. and that was way before the invention of cd burners. I've bought From Chaos twice. It got stolen at a party, and I couldn't bring myself to burn it from someone hehehe.
You are definately cool now!! I hate it when my friends just want to download stuff and not help out the band whatsoever. I mean it's free but dammit!! You gotta support your band. When I get back home I got a bunch of CD's to buy.
Yeah, usually I download a few songs and if I like them, I go out and but the cd. My next purchase is The Used, because I have like 8 of their songs on burned cds. And YES! You have to support your band. It's just not right to burn their shit.
