Over the weekend I had the opportunity to travel up to Miami University’s Millett Hall to see O.A.R. play. Though I have seen the band many times over the years I hadn’t seen them perform since the summer of 2011. That stretch of well over a year is definitely the longest time between shows since I started following them in 2000. Various things prevented me from attending one of their concerts this past summer, but I’m hoping it doesn’t happen again.
Truthfully I wasn’t sure if I was going to go up to this show until a few days before. Liam, one of my roommates from college, and I had talked about it briefly, but when he offered an extra spot in his car for a ride to the show I knew I had to make it happen. We all had a great time at the show despite it being in a dry venue. The band was all dressed in costumes as characters from Revenge of the Nerds and some of those in the audience were dressed up as well.
One of my favorite things from the night was dusting off my old concert taping gear and putting it to good use. I think the tape sounds great. You can take a listen below.
