Summer is all about vibes, especially summer concerts.

Think about it.

Whether it's D ave Matthews Band or Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band, summer music is about a mood, an experience, a feeling. It's laid-back. It's relaxed. It's about the groove.

The same is true for 311 and Dirty Heads.

The Omaha, Neb.-based 311 has been laying down West Coast-inspired grooves since the mid-'90s, with hits like "Down," "All Mixed Up," "Transistor," "Beautiful Disaster," "Come Original" and "Amber" dominating rock radio through the early 2000s — and still played today.

Meanwhile, the SoCal band Dirty Heads are on the rise with their mix of alternative, hip-hop, rock and reggae. (Kind of makes you think about 311, no?) Picking up the drumsticks where 311 left off, Dirty Heads have been serving up earworms for the past 16 years.

Dirty Heads are touring behind their upcoming seventh album, "Super Moon," which comes out on Aug. 9.

The two bands are sharing the stage this summer on a nationwide tour that comes to Xfinity Center on Thursday, July 18, then Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion on Tuesday, July 23.

With ticket prices starting at $26.50 and a bill that also includes The Interrupters, Dreamers and Bikini Trill, this promises to be a show worth seeing and a night of songs you'll not just hear, but feel, all summer long
