311 performing in Raleigh, North Carolina at Red Hat Amphitheater 2016

311 @ Red Hat

311 with Matisyahu Sunday, July 24th, 2016 - Red Hat Amphitheater It was a busy weekend for the staff of RDU Music with two shows in two days. The best part was that each show was planted firmly on the opposite end of the musical spectrum.

U.N.I.C.E.F. reported there were approximately 250 million child laborers worldwide. We lost Phil Hartman. Faith No More and Refused both broke up. Never in our wildest dreams did the then-teenage staff of RDU Music think that in the year of our Lord 2015, we would be in possession of […]
