Beachlife Festival 2022: Weezer, 311 brings the first day of three-day festival to a rockin’ close

“What a great place for a concert,” singer-guitarist Nick Hexum of 311 told the large crowd that had gathered on the sand at Redondo Beach’s Seaside Lagoon on Friday.

The rock band hit the Lotide stage with “Beautiful Disaster” at sunset on the first evening of the three-day Beachlife Festival. Suddenly the cool wind, blowing with shades of orange, yellow and pink that colored the sky, didn’t lose sight of Hexum & Co., who in the moment paused to breathe.

By the beginning of the afternoon, the venue was packed with fans who had finally made their way into the festival, many of whom noted that they would leave early to start a three-day weekend of music, each day as headliners. Weezer, The Smashing Pumpkins and the Steve Miller Band. With cold beverages, expensive pizza slices and other portable fest delicacies, patrons walked back and forth between the two main stages and made a few pit stops to enjoy some of the smaller attractions along the way.

As they launched in “Beverly Hills,” fans started chanting “Turn it on!” Raise more!” Some patrons opted to move closer to the stage, but the volume did not increase as they were packed and squished together.

It wasn’t until after Weezer burst through Metallica’s cover of “Enter Sandman”—arguably the quietest cover of that song ever performed live—that the festival’s techno crew began to mess with the sound. Although it didn’t change much, it was a little faster on either side of the stage. Despite the low voice murmurs, fans still danced and sang along.

Like 311, Weezer’s set featured big hits like “Buddy Holly,” “Pork and Beans,” “El Scorcho” and “Undone – The Sweater Song” as well as “The Good Life,” “All My Favorite Songs”. were involved. “Feels Like Summer” and the brand new “A Little Bit of Love”, which the band withdrew in March.
