311 have always been a band that’s defied easy description but Uplifter, the band’s latest album, finds the group harder than ever to pin down. What other band releases their riskiest, richest record after almost 20 years together? What other band had its biggest radio hit in the mid-90's but is more popular than ever a decade later, selling out amphitheaters even when they haven't had a new album in almost four years? What other band is so intent on challenging themselves while inspiring listeners to have an open mind? Clearly, there are no other bands that are quite like 311, a band that blurs borders between styles so thoroughly that they wind up blurring preconceptions of what a rock band can be. Uplifter, their ninth studio album, stands as the best evidence of 311’s eclecticism and is, in many ways, the boldest, best music they’ve ever made.
Ballyhoo! was formed in the summer of 1995 & has since played to tons of kids all over the area. Their music has been spun on 98 Rock in Baltimore, 99.1 WHFS in D.C., 96 Rock to name a few. The band has shared bills with such artists as Green Day, Staind, Incubus, Sum 41, Audioslave & more. With the power of Incubus, the hiphop groove of 311, & the voice reminiscent of Sublime, you've got a rockin'- melodic wave of sound that'll have you jammin' all night long. These guys' songs are addicting. You'll find yourself singing in the shower the next day! So check them out right here & at a venue near you.
