O.A.R. coming to Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater




This isn't MGMT, nor is it Al Pacino. But still, Ruth Eckerd Hall is making an effort to bring in a different style of crowd.

O.A.R., the jammy, feel-good college-rockin' Maryland quintet, is coming to Clearwater's Ruth Eckerd Hall at 6 p.m. Sept. 15. Steel Train is your opening act. Tickets are $37.50-$39.50, according to O.A.R.'s website, and they go onsale July 23. Click here for details.

Your humble Soundcheck editor lost interest in loosey-goosey frat pop following a protracted, but enjoyable, Guster phase in college. Still, the intro to O.A.R.'s This Town is pretty righteous. Maybe it's time to break out the ol' hemp watchband and hacky sack!
