- Set 1:
Entire show with MikelParis on keys, percussion, and vocals.
Reviews Great show once again. Marc messed up a few times lyrically, but hey, that's part of the business. I wanted them to play program director so badly and I made a sign and after 9 songs of Marc ignoring me lol he finally acknowledged it and said "i appreciate the sign, but we haven't played it in a while" so i'm glad the sign wasn't a waste of time.
Other than that and the annoying tall freaks that should've gotten thrown out for being highly intoxicated while underage, the set list was decent and some note worthy songs were so moved on, black rock, and on top the cage.
The first song they played, "amazing", they didn't go into delicate few, they went into about an hour ago so that was disappointing. Toy store... geezus, you can play toy store but you can't remember how to play program director? toy store and over and over = put me to sleep. Sorry i'm being over critical, but I go to at least 2 shows a year now and now I'm being picky! haha
IF OAR READS THIS... PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!! START PLAYING MORE SONGS THAT DEFINES OAR.. i.e. old man time, program director, untitled, here's to you, and if you want to slow it up, by all means Marc... but do so with patiently and not over and over/toy store :) thanks guys and i'll be seeing you this summer for sure!

this was my 14th show and I haven't heard the guys sound so good and so solid and a long time! A lot of energy, great set, and a lot of fun! -BimJelizle05 April 3, 2011
My 13th show overall, my 8th time in the front row. Before I even mention the band at all, let me just say that the crowd was pathetic. Fans behind my were so drunk and obnoxious it wasn't even funny. People were being shoved against the railing non stop and security had to talk to the group of obnoxious teenagers who were very obviously drunk about five times. This being the same group that yelled for "Poker" the entire show, even during the intro of poker they were yelling it because they didn't recognize it.
Now that I've said that, the guys played great, as always, but I agree with the previous statement, toy store is great, and so is over and over, but both in one show, I wasn't a fan of. Nice to see them open with Delicate Few, even if they only played the first half. Took me 13 shows to FINALLY hear 52-50, definitely the highlight of the show for me. I was at the Okemo show front row as well, so seeing them close with Night Shift as the only song in the encore both nights was a bit upsetting. I got the set list from Jerry at both Okemo and this show, and this show they left I Feel Home off of the encore, probably because they like to play it in a good atmosphere, and the group of obnoxious fans certainly didn't make for that. Overall, a great show as always, see everyone at RIT, front row of course. -oarfan16 April 4, 2011
