311, Cypress Hill at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre tonight (7/17/13)



At 31, I'm the target demographic here - after all, 311 and Cypress Hill were a major source of weed-smoking music for '90s teens (not that I'd know anything about that). Thing is, many of the red-eyed kids who once blasted this stuff have kids of their own now - or worse, jobs that drug test - which could make things a bit awkward during Cypress Hill's ganja jams. And 311's nĂ¼-funk may not be all that interesting without a head full of haze. So, while bills like this quite evidently aim to recapture the feel of roving '90s fests like Lollapalooza, they lack one essential variable - an incredibly stoned audience. With G. Love & Special Sauce. $17-$62. July 17, 6:30 p.m. Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, 707 Pavilion Blvd. 704-549-1292.
