For two sold-out nights at the Wiltern Theatre, 311 was the toast of Los Angeles.

This past Friday and Saturday, Nov. 11-12, the veteran reggae/rockers took the stage at the historic Wiltern for two special full-album shows: 1999’s Soundsystem and 2001’s From Chaos, each a record that came during the band’s peak of popularity.

Soundsystem, which featured the singles “Come Original” and “Flowing,” came on the heels of 1995’s self-titled Blue record and 1997’s sprawling Transistor, two albums 311 played in their entirety over two nights in Chicago in late October.

From Chaos featured the single “Amber,” which remains one of the band’s most enduring songs to this day. Both of these albums were played in full, with the band adding encores of fan favorites and other material before calling it a night.

These two shows gave 311’s most dedicated fans a chance to experience some of these album’s rarest songs — including “Can’t Fade Me,” from Soundsystem, and From Chaos tracks like “You Get Worked” and “Hostile Apostle,” which have remained pretty elusive over the years despite the band’s knack for unpredictable set lists packed with deep cuts.

Joining 311 at the Wiltern shows as a special guest opening act were the Phunk Junkeez, a Phoenix-based hip-hop/funk collective and longtime friends of the band who shared the stage many times in the early to mid-’90s.

Like the other full-album shows on this fall tour, the Wiltern gigs were live streamed via the band’s 311StreamSystem.com website, which will be re-broadcasting the initial live stream this coming weekend:

Soundsystem Restream: Friday, November 18 at 6PM PT / 8PM CT / 9PM ET
