311 is proud to perform to raise awareness of cancer. “This is a cause that is near and dear to my heart as my mom is a cancer survivor,” says 311 frontman Nick Hexum. “Cancer has had a profound effect on so many lives, and 311 is honored to headline Moffitt Rocks Tampa Bay. Thanks to the help of organizations like Moffitt, we can rally together and beat this disease. We hope you will join us for a great night of music – and all for a really great cause.”

The night before the benefit concert, 311 will unveil their new Rock Brothers Limited Release “Beautiful Disaster” craft beer at Rock Brothers Brewing Company, 1901 N. 15th St. The beer will be bottled in limited quantity and will be available on draft in the tasting room Nov. 3 and by the bottle Nov. 4.
