Snoop Dogg performed first, playing a set that lasted about an hour and fifteen minutes, featuring a mix of newer and more old school hits ranging from the classic, "What's My Name?", to the booty bumping anthem, "Drop It Like It's Hot". Other than the usual marijuana embedded banners and on-stage blunt sessions, Snoop's display lacked excitement, spontaneity, and color, quite simply. Although his visual display was somewhat lackluster, his sound was good and his swagger was on point.
Following the Dogg was the act I came to see, 311. Mixing both reggae and rock with poetic lyrics boasting style and originality, 311 is cool, confident, and charged up with energy. If not because of the intricate lighting schemes and the 5 minutes drum session, where all members of the band bang on big drum heads, Nick Hexom's killer white pants were reason for being present at this all out chill fest. It was to my surprise, and delight, that 311 stuck to their more mellow tunes, as opposed to their hard-core tracks; It was much easier to digest 311's set after Snoop's due to it's relaxed vibe.
