    Does anyone else wish that the next generation of kids had caught onto 311 and the live show?

    There's the 90's generation of fans.. the 2000's generation of fans (me sort of).... and then 2010's.. no kids showed up.. the crowd got older.

    To me this is what seperates the mega-greats from the the greats... the mega greats transcend all generations..
    311 should have gotten this sort of love from the future generations... maybe they still can?

    My wife asks both of our daughter's friends if they know 311. No one ever says yes...Hell, even some adults my age (40) haven't. WTF?

    Oddly enough, even though they've never heard of 311, I asked them your query and they told me
    Only Live

    I remember at a show in 2012 I took a date... ended up being okay date I guess.. but last time I ever bring a random date to 311..

    anyway.. went to the show and there were these young highschool kids standing in front of us.. and I thought "hey, younger kids at a show.. i can almost see my younger self in these kids.. cool"

    and then when Amber came on they said "DUDE! this is it this is it!!!" and they started jumping for joy, proceeded to get a joint out of their pocket and got excited and lit it up... almost as if they weren't sure if 311 would play Amber of all things..

    Totally brought me back to my highschool days in the early 2000's
