Blog Recap: Indianapolis, IN | July 12th, 2012 | inwhiteriver.com
After another sweltering, dry day in Indianapolis, the sun set and the lights at the Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park went up for the Of A Revolution (O.A.R.) concert on July 12th. The perennial favorite for the Park brought in a huge crowd, and Team WRSP had a ton of fun with the event.
The opening act, Santa Barbara-based Rebelution, brought a reggae vibe to the Lawn and provided a great backdrop for the incoming fans as they gathered their chairs in preparation for the show. The band played songs from its new album, Peace of Mind.
When O.A.R. came on stage around 8:45, the crowd was ready to jam, and the band delivered. The band played a mix of crowd-pleasing classics like “Shattered” and “Love and Memories” coupled with high-energy songs from their newest album, King. The band also created a song for the 2012 London Olympics with rapper B.O.B. called “Champion.”
The highlight of the night for Team WRSP, however, was the encore performance, during which the band played “That Was a Crazy Game of Poker.” Audience members threw playing cards in the air to celebrate the concert.
O.A.R. formed when all of its members were in high school in Maryland and continued to grow to fame and success after the members attended Ohio State University.
The Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park’s next show is British sensation Florence + The Machine on July 29th. Everyone heading out to the packed show should be sure to check out Team WRSP and WINDY for park information and a chance to win free tickets to the WRSP attractions and future shows!
