LEWISBURG, Pa. — The band O.A.R. (Of A Revolution), called one of the most successful indie bands ever, will perform in concert at Bucknell University Saturday, Nov. 13, in the Sojka Pavilion.
Tickets for the concert are $20, available beginning Sept. 23 in person from the Campus Box Office in the Weis Center or from the Box Office in the Elaine Langone Center.
Tickets also are available by calling 570-577-1000 or at the door if still available.
Doors open at 8 p.m. for the 9 p.m. show which will feature only O.A.R., according to Kari Conrad, associate dean of students at Bucknell and adviser to the concert committee.
"Instead of having an opening act, O.A.R. will be playing an extended show, which means more musical selections from the band that has built its reputation as a college-friendly jam band on campuses across the country," she said.
This concert is a return appearance by the band, which played at Uptown, the university's student nightclub, a few years ago.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the five-member band began as students at Ohio State University whose friends began posting their music on the Internet. The group has five releases and a "grass-roots following drawn to the band's mix of upbeat folk, pop and reggae flavors."
The band recently signed with Lava Records and recorded the album, "In Between Now and Then," with producer John Alagia, who has worked with the Dave Mathews Band.
