Since the last time O.A.R. returned to their college stomping ground last February, the band brought in Columbus brass master Evan Oberla as part of their touring band, and they did a series of multi-night “extended stay” tours in New York, D.C. and Philadelphia.
In terms of new music, there’s not much to report. But Rebelution, the opening act for Wednesday’s O.A.R. show at LC Pavilion, does have a new album. “Peace of Mind” exudes the backyard-barbecue reggae vibe we’ve come to expect from Wednesday’s headliners.
