I'm really digging all these 20th anniversary album concerts this summer. The Offspring will celebrate their pivotal 1994 album “Smash” by playing it in its entirety at Stir Cove in September. Toadies will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the equally seminal album “Rubberneck” by playing it in its entirety in August at the Waiting Room. And on Saturday (July 12), Omaha-rooted rap-n-reggae rockers 311 will play their '94 album “Grassroots” – from beginning to end – at the aptly named Grassroots Music Festival in Council Bluffs.

But who says we can't feel young again this weekend at the Grassroots Festival at River's Edge Park where 311 will headline the daylong show that also features Omaha Arts & Entertainment Award-winners Purveyors of the Conscious Sound, Satchel Grande and the Kris Lager Band, among others.

What song from “Grassroots” am I most looking forward to hearing? "Omaha Stylee," of course. I'm guessing we'll also hear cuts from 311's new album “Stereolithic,” which was released to glowing reviews in March.

Get in the mood for 311 by watching bassist P-Nut talk about “Stereolithic.” Just click on the link to see it.
