I like 311 and Matisyahu, so it was no surprise that I liked their sound.
Ever heard of The Smithereens? I saw them at an Octoberfest concert back when this song was starting to get popular.
Edit: Obviously The Smithereens don't have the reggae sound, but you mentioned going to Lolla and I had a flashback to my first outside venue concert. Just thought I would share.
Wow. I can still remember the smell of weed lingering in the air, hippies getting smashed in the mosh pits, and body surfing trash cans full of regurgitation. Good times.
