Oh, the modern hippies are here to stay, as is evidenced by the fact that this appearance is a stop on O.A.R.’s “XX Tour.” You heard that right: This jam band has been going for 20 years, at this point. While it would be close to a decade before they achieved mainstream success with their fifth album Stories of a Stranger in 2005, the group’s delicate interaction, righteous instrumentation, and drawn-out groove-heavy jams have made them a favorite with very righteous devotees of the devil’s lettuce since the get-go.
