    O.A.R.

    Any O.A.R. fans here? I've been a fan for quite a while now. Got to see them play at Stephens back in 2005, and then caught a show last fall. Tonight they are playing a free concert on campus here at Ohio State (where they attended school) for Homecoming. Should be a good time. Any favorite songs? Personally my favorite is "I Feel Home."

    Re: O.A.R.

    I was at that show in 2005 as well. Awesome time. That really takes me back. They let people record their shows so you can still download a direct sound board feed of that show and most of their others.

    I'm down with O.A.R. Saw them live at the Val Air Ballroom in Des Moines awhile back. Very good show. Favorite song is probably Hey Girl (live at MSG).

    I saw them last fall at Ohio University (OU around here but that's weird to me) and bumped into Benj and Richard at the bars afterwards. Very down to earth guys, chatted with a fan for a little while (even though I may have consumed quite a few adult beverages that night...)

    I don't know what it is about a oar concert but I tend to always over indulge!

    Re: O.A.R.

    OAR is from about 35 mins from me...Iím a huge fan, more of their old stuff though. My freshman year of HS, I was at the concert they did at the 930 club that became their live album "Any time now." The whole album is amazing if you were there or not. "Delicate Few" and "Get Away" are my two of my favorites. I've seen them prob like 6 or 7 times and each time it seems more mainstream then the one prior (NOT hating) but last year I heard they did a show at the 930 club playing the same set list as they did for the album "Any time now" that would be special. Anyway if you havenít heard the album please give it a listen. ďI feel Home" is definitely one of their best tracks, its a classic in Maryland!!

    Re: O.A.R.

    Seen them at House of Blues in Chicago and Vegas back in '01 and '02. They are a great live show and I can't believe I missed the Val Air show this year. Poker is my favorite song. Would always be our closing song at the bar.


    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    Saw them in 00-01 in Lincoln. Fun show, attracts douchey frat guys but it was good. King of the thing is a great song.

    Original aspect ratio? Huge fan. Can't believe people were cool with pan & scan for so long. Black bars forever!

    Re: O.A.R.

    Was a pretty rockin show tonight. The guys were really excited to be back at Ohio State. They started the show playing with the whole marching band. Lots of fun twists that they always add. Always fun!
