LIVE REVIEW: 311 and Matisyahu at Coney Island's Ford Amphitheater

The energy on the Coney Island boardwalk was electric last Saturday, the 16th, as music fans gathered outside the recently opened Ford Amphitheater. As part of the summer concert series, 311 was taking the stage with opener Matisyahu. With the audience gathered, the lights dimmed and the show began promptly on schedule.

Matisyahu played what felt like a well-rehearsed, tight set. What he lacked in energy he made up in presence, stalking the stage with the intent to deliver his music to the world, which was felt even from all the way in the back of the amphitheater. One highlight of Matisyahu's performance was when he came out during 311's set to help cover The Cure's "LoveSong." The two acts coming together to perform a beautiful cover of the classic song delivered a true sense of unity and harmony.

After Matisyahu, the crowd was ready. They were here for 311's bombastic energy and they were going to get it. As the band took the stage, everyone quickly got to their feet and the party began. Through a 24 song set that explored the band's rich 25 year history, the stadium was treated to a show that had an unmatched level of energy. Another awesome surprise was when the band did a cover of Daft Punk's "Get Lucky," the familiar bass progression booming loud enough to surely be heard by those on the boardwalk. It was fitting for the show, for if I had to describe it in one word, it would be booming. If you're looking to attend a show that feels more like one big party filled with togetherness, then look no further, because 311 and Matisyahu are ready to welcome you into their family.
