Fans of college rock jammers O.A.R rejoice, because the group are returning to Music City on Jan. 31, to rock out at Marathon Music Works with help from The Hunts. Last time O.A.R threw down in Nashville, we told you all about it (see this post), and in an interesting new twist this go ’round, the band have started taking setlist requests for every tour stop. They’re calling it the “You Pick The Set Tour,” and we have details on how you can make your voice heard after the jump. Tickets are still available for $31-$34, but if you’re feeling lucky, you can also enter for your chance to win a pair below!
Founded in Rockville, MD, by Marc Roberge (vocals/guitar), Chris Culos (drums), Richard On (guitar), and Benj Gershman (bass), O.A.R. (Of A Revoloution) found their fifth member Jerry DePizzo (sax/guitar) while performing the fraternity/sorority circuit as students at THE Ohio State University in the late ‘90s. Strictly through word of mouth, they built a reputation around campus, and eventually they started ramblin’ around the country performing. Now, after nearly endless touring and eight studio albums, they are officially a ‘big deal,’ achieving mainstream success and a loyal following. For their current tour, the fellas are doing something extra special, allowing fans to pick their own setlist by popular vote. Presale, VIP, and Soundcheck Experience ticket holders have already had their say for each stop of the tour, but you can still get in on the voting with the hashtags #YouPickTheSetTour & #Nashville. Enter for your chance at free tickets below and don’t forget to vote!
Made up of seven siblings, raging in age from sixteen to twenty-four, it’s safe to say Chesapeake, Virginia-based alternative folk performers The Hunts have chemistry to spare. Their debut full-length LP, Those Younger Days, has garnered some critical acclaim and helped them tap into a growing audience. Touring with the successful, and radio-friendly headliners won’t hurt either. Enjoy the video for there wonderful single “Make This Leap” below, and get to Marathon on time to see live.
